After our late night out on Friday, I was up bright and early Saturday morning to meet at my sister, Diane's, house for a day of shopping. Our first stop was Corner Quilts in Wauseon, OH. It's a nice little quilt shop, and I found a really cute flannel quilt pattern that includes snowmen appliques in wool.
Next stop was the Pettisville Meat Store, where I brought presents for home -- a chicken pot pie, some maple breakfast sausages, beef jerky for Tom and the boys, and a meaty bone and beef jerky for Casey.
After stocking up on meats, we headed to Sauder Village in Archbold, OH. This little village is a replica of a German Settlement, and includes many cute little shops --
They're all closed for the winter, but it would be a nice place to visit in the spring or summer. I thought this Tin Shop was a really nice-looking building.
The shops open in the winter include the bakery,
the General Store,
and our destination, Threads of Tradition, the quilt shop.
This is a really nice quilt shop, with lots of beautiful Civil War fabrics (which I love!), but I didn't find a single thing that I *needed* to buy, so I left there empty-handed! My sisters, including Diane here, found things to buy, though.
With our shopping completed, it was time for lunch. We headed back to Pettisville to the Essen Haus restaurant, where we had a delicious lunch.
That's the gang -- starting from the right -- my sisters Diane, Tina and Sandi, my Mom, my sister Deby, and my niece, Kelly. We had a really nice day together -- see you soon, guys!
HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!!!
