|Table at our summerhouse|
I hadn't really a wish list, if you are a quilter you don't need a wishlist, we can quickly make up our wishlist .
But I had two things:
1. batting (not very interesting)
2. a book about "making amish dolls'.
You should think it would be easy in Lancaster, but it was only in the 4th quiltshop that I found a book. It wasn't even on the shelve, so they had to pick it from the attic. But even more suprisingsly, the lady in the shop wrote the book. Of course a picture!
This weekend I started my first doll, the body wasn't too complicated, the dress however, seems pretty hard when I was reading the instructions.
But you just have to do it, step-by-step. Like the Ikea-furniture, if you miss a step there will be a leftover at the end. Still working at the doll. Hope to show you the result end of the week.
if you want to read more about the Amish way of living go to website about Intercourse.
Here is a list of the quiltshops we visited:
Old Country Store - Intercourse
Log Cabin Quilt shop - Bird-in-hand
Zook's - Intercourse
Burkholder - Denver
