Old Order-Mennonite-Embroidered Runner

 When Hannah and I went to Ephrata (Amish Country) on Saturday, we stopped at a huge "Barn Sale" where several old order Mennonite families were holding a garage sale of sorts.  There were so many neat things!  I found this hand-embroidered runner for only $1.  It's gorgeous.  If I were to have bought this at one of the gift shops in Lancaster County, it would have been $10 at least.
The detail work is simply beautiful.  This is the pattern in each corner.

  1. Beautiful! You can't by the fabric for that amount!
