Day Three

Up early Saturday morning for Antiques on the Diamond in Ligonier.... When I say early, I mean that we were downtown at 6:45 a.m.

Deste said there weren't as many vendors as usual, but there were quite a few, in addition to some cute shops. I was able to find a couple of things to bring home with me.

Next was Laughlintown Antiques. A great shop with nice primitives and textiles. Deste came out with a remarkable little sampler from the early 1800s.

I can imagine making this Hit or Miss rug from that huge cotton basket full of worms I have amassed.

The pineapple quilt to the left was constructed from silks which are mostly shattered now......but you can still appreciate the beauty of the design.

We admired this simple penny mat, thinking it would be great for Fall. Don't you love the green pottery jug on it?

After that we went to the Farmer's Market in Ligonier where we purchased delicious homemade bread, pierogis, hummus, mozzarella, fresh corn and tomatoes to have for our dinners.

By this time we were pooped and hungry, so it was back to the Woolley Cottage for lunch and a nap.

Our late afternoon included a visit to the stately Thistledown at Seger House.

We got to peep into one of the well appointed guest rooms and get a closer view of one of the several stained glass windows.

This grand house also houses a well stocked yarn shop, Bo-Peep, which was actually the purpose of the visit. Deste was on a mission to find a particular yarn....and I came home with this:
To make a little shawl wrote from the pattern 28's Cousin 53! on Ravelry. It is a simple pattern which I will hopefully be able to accomplish in a reasonable amount of time.

Also finished another Lucy block.  There is no square block with this one as I didn't have enough fabric.

Beautiful weather.
Friendly folks.
Bright end of summer flowers.

Take care,
