Rancho interior

We walked through the large adobe house, and quilts were displayed in each period-decorated room. It was a step back into time. Amazing and beautiful. There were antique quilts and embroidered items, but also newly created items, including recreations of antiques and tribute quilts to historic events. We attended a lecture about the women of the ranch, and learned some local history. Every weekend after Thanksgiving, the rancho has activities for children to learn crafts of days gone by: making corn husk dolls, learning how to make dripped wax candles, etc. There are buggy rides and other events. I'm charmed by it all. Posted by Hello
