Meeting with Shirley Rosenbrock from Ditto Designs

I have spent the last three days in the company of Shirley Rosenbrock , of Ditto Designs.

She has created embroidery blocks series Piccadilly Paisley, Cinnamon Serenade and a new series Jillianne.

Shirley treated me to wonderful Indiana hospitality, showing me the local sites.  We visited the Amish community of Shipshewana, which was an experience in itself.

I was introduced to many of Shirley’s friends with whom she embroiders.  And apart from my Aussie accent, we all spoke the same embroidery language.
