Very quick trip

     A couple of weeks ago, my husband and I did a quick overnight trip to Berlin, Ohio to look at wood and fabric and the awesome scenery. We are not going again in November because we hit wet, heavy snow from Erie to Akron on the way down, the days are too short and thus it is dark way too fast in Amish country, and the ride back was in the dark and, again, some snow from Erie to Angola, NY along Interstate 90 (or the 90 as we call it in NY). 
    Despite the conditions, the land is so beautiful. We stayed at an Amish B&B and it had a room that I chose, called The Quilters Room. It had a treadle, decorations, quilts, a quilt wallpaper border and neat little wood houses and shops displayed. The B&B was on a big hill, so I was able to take some phenomenal photos from there. Beautiful landscapes get me all the time.

If anyone knows where to buy these little houses, let me know. None in giftshops there, just China junk.

The start of the road up the hill.
Near the top of the road. A real treat coming back at night from dinner with no lights at all.
    We went to Keim Lumber in Charm, where my husband drools more than me in a fabric store. I went to Millers in Charm and Zinck's in Berlin where I found some things I could use.
The stripes are for binding, the black and white for a block exchange, and the others, because. I did not get a shot of the RWB fabric I bought at Zinck's before I cut it up for the Mystery Quilt by Alycia.

The little houses are The Cat's Meow Village. They have an online website.

Sounds like a neat trip with fabric thrown in! I do understand that wood drool is worse than fabric drool. I have seen it first

It is a beautiful place, but I wouldn't want to go through those curvy mountainous roads in the snow. Glad you had a good time.

Great room you chose. I love the stripe fabric, and the safety pins.

Looks such a beautiful spot to visit and I am so envious of your being able to say in an Amish B&B.

Sad to have missed you. Glad your weekend was revitalizing to soul and stash!
