More lazy summer days

Coshocton quilt show

The girls and I went to see a very nice guild run show in the charming town of Coschocton, Ohio over the weekend.  There were lots of things going on so the trip didn’t have to be 4 hours in the car for just looking at quilts.  Not that I would mind that.  I have traveled further in a day for the very same thing. 

The show is always a delight.  It always revolves around a theme and this year’s theme was Red and White.  The quilts are always lovely to look at, but the reason I love the show so much is because of the ribbons. They are hand- made each year and depict the theme.  I should have taken more photos specifically of the ribbons, but I did not think of that.

I handed my camera over to Laura for her own pleasure as she was bugging her sister immediately upon entering the doors to take pictures of things.  I figured the better part of valor was to just let Emily enjoy the show without indulging her little sister’s whims.

Right next door to Coshocton is a place called Roscoe Village.  They were having their Canal Days celebration this weekend as well.  We drove through their little main street but the shop keepers were not open yet, they were sweeping the sidewalks and vendors were readying their canopy tops to set up their little stores on the road.

The town square of Coshocton had a Civil War thing going on . We did see Abe Lincoln posing and quite a few young ladies in their beautiful gowns texting in their boredom waiting for the last day of their misery to be over.  By the time we reached Abe, he had escaped to the shadow of the huge town hall for a brief respite from the heat. There were only 6 vendors set up on the lawn of the courthouse so we were quickly back in the car and on our way home.

We did find a restaurant in the Buehler’s grocery store and that was where we ate our lunch.  It was reminiscent of an old fashioned diner like the old Denny’s.

A good day was had by all.  Laura spent the rest of her day after we got home editing the many pictures she took of all the beautiful quilts.
