Treasures found in my closet

Yes, when Pat and Aunt Liz helped clean out the closet in my cottage last Saturday, they unearthed some treasures I thought were "long gone." Among them were some of the Amish pieces I used to have hanging in my home. I decided to bring them to the office to decorate the outside of my cubicle since author, Beverly Lewis, is coming for a visit today and tomorrow.

The shirt and pants, plus one of the prayer caps, were given to me by Grandma Zook. She passed away this past spring, but I have pleasant memories of going to her home to buy fabric, specifically double-sided flannel, for nighties.

The wall hanging quilt was hand sewn by an Amish woman. The stitching is wonderfully done.

Well, I know who to call if we get stationed in Amish country and I need traditional dress!
