We have several Amish families that live on farms in our community. Their mode of transportation is horse-drawn buggies. It's not unusual to see a buggy with the whole family sitting in a line of traffic. I love being the first vehicle behind the buggies because I love to see the Amish children in their traditional clothing. Sometimes I can even catch their eye and get a little smile from them.
Recently my dear friend Alana from northern Canada sent me a gorgeous table runner made from purple batik fabrics. I have named it Almost Amish because of the bright colors set with black. It looks wonderful in our home.
The coasters are a bonus. Alana did a beautiful job on the machine quilting. Thank you, Alana!!
Winter is setting in for real in our area. I made a quick trip out this morning to visit our computer guru and was startled to almost hit a deer who decided to cross the highway in front of me as I was driving through a patch of fog. Thankfully I was able to miss him. Our roads are supposed to be icy later this afternoon. I have one more quick trip to make and then I will be tucked in for the day and probably most of the weekend.
I will be putting together a pot of French Onion soup to have with our dinner tonight. It's a perfect day for homemade soup and open-face roast beef sandwiches.
Wishing you a day filled with Peace & Plenty.
