I have such cherished memories of spending the summers with my aunt in the country. It's funny she use to have a Darlington address and a few years back, it may be 10 or 15 I'm not sure they re-classed her address to Crawfordsville. :) Thanks for the information on the festival. I can't imagine a million people in any one place. That is sooooo many! :)
Hi Karen, I haven't been to the festival but when we were children I would stay with my aunt in Crawfordsville and there was a covered bridge between she and Darlington, IN. We had a ball with that old bridge. :) Is the festival this weekend? Maybe I can convince my hubby to take a road trip. :) :)
Just wanted to pop in to say “hello” and introduce myself. I’m Linda Hubalek, fellow quilter and author from Kansas. Books about pioneer women are my specialty, with a cooking or quilting theme mixed into each historical fiction series.
My Trail of Thread in written in the form of letters sent back home while my ancestors traveled to Kansas. Each book mentions twelve old-time quilt patterns, and I put drawings of them in the back of the books.
So if you like to read—besides quilting—please enjoy my blog and book excerpts on my website. Besides printed as paperbacks, my ten books are also available for your Kindle or Nook.
I have about a dozen quilts made by my great grandmother, (that we used all the time when I was a kid) so I’m into antique quilts and patterns. What kind of quilts and patterns do you like to work with?
