Last Saturday three of my friends and I drove to Saco to see the Saco Museum's exhibit 200 Years of Maine Fashions. The show will be on for another few weeks. I encourage you to go; the quality of the garments was excellent and the presentation was, too. Here is a slide show of some photos I took. The clothes dated from 1755-1955. We had a very fun day and stopped at Cottonweeds in Freeport and Calico Basket in Windham.

Have you ever wondered how those beautiful reproduction fabrics were used when they were new? I certainly have. Thanks to Pinterest, I've found several examples of fabrics that look familiar to us in the quilt world. These three dresses are girl's dresses from the mid-1800s. Imagine a whole dress made out of that lovely fat quarter you just purchased. Wouldn't you love to see a little girl wearing that?

Today DH and I drove to Bailey Island and walked around Land's End a bit.
Bill ventured down to the beach while I took pics near the fisherman statue.
Then we headed over to the Giant Staircase, one of our favorite walks.
No bicycles today.
I always love this cottage. The whole walk is lined with shingled cottages, most of the a reasonable small size, not the overlarge type.
At the end of the walk, this beautiful little cove with crashing waves.
Maine is always beautiful, even in the winter.
