Pa and I had a dinner date "in town" last night. We had a wonderful, relaxing dinner in what was the town's only saw mill a long time ago, built in 1783, and properly named the Old Red Mill Inn. It is now an inn and restaurant, as well as housing one of the last remaining real time cocktail lounges left in the United States.
It was a delicious and cozy date night for Ma and Pa.
After dinner it was such a beautiful night that we decided to walk around the main square before heading back to our car and returning up the hill towards home. I realized, as we were walking past the most awesome quilting store, that I have never shared with you our local quilt shop. I enjoy a good browse, but as I am not a quilter I have never really made a big purchase, but it is so much fun to browse through and look at all the wonderful goodies. I have found the need to grab some charm packs for the back of my ornies and smalls, and they also carry some DMC. It is housed in another old building, named the Norton House, and is aptly called Norton House Quilters Paradise. I do think our town needs a Cross Stitch store, as all of them seem to be way up yonder in Northern VT, maybe someday after Pa retires and we are up yonder all the time, I will just have to open one, however I better tell Pa first.
This is a pic of our main street and the crossroads of the world, well, not really but it is the place where the cross roads of my two worlds come together.
Did I mention that Wimington, VT, my up yonder town was charted in 1751? Yep, it is older than Bob Barker!
It was such a nice evening, thanks Pa
