The rest of the story...........

I thought I would share with you about the rest of my trip to Ohio Amish country.

It first started with a beautiful flight from my beloved Florida.



We visited so many wonderful quilt shops during the week.

I bought a little bit of fabric here,

and there,

along with some notions and patterns.

And even though I was a little late for the season of fall color, I did see some beautiful trees as we drove around.

And some sweet birds that don't visit our area,

And then an incredible sunset flight on the way home

It was a full fun filled week to spend with my BFF.

My favorite picture is one we took in Charm Ohio. This covered bridge is behind Miller's Quilt shop.

Thanks for coming along with me. I hope you enjoyed our little tour.

I love that area. I have been there a half dozen times and have bought some of their beautiful hand crafted furniture. Love the shops in Charm, Millersburg and all those great little towns in the "triangle". So glad you had a good time. It is a beautiful place in all seasons.

These are great photos and beautiful country. I love the photo of the clouds from the plane. I will never get used to the strange sensation of having the clouds below you instead of above--(sigh). Thanks for sharing and happy Thanksgiving!

What a great trip. I'm so jealous - here in California we really don't get tree colors like that.

Love the covered bridge photo!
