Who We Are

The past few years, the area where I live, Crawford County, Ohio, has seen a wonderful explosion of younger families who are embracing the joys and challenges of living off the land. Because of them, amazing things are happening which have been embraced by our community. Farmer’s markets have been created and on-farm stores have opened. Families dedicated to growing organic produce and naturally raised meats are meeting the public’s needs for locally raised foods. And at the heart of this movement are the women.

Ohio Country Journal is my attempt to share the essence of farm life, focusing on, but not limited to, women. My goal is to bring you into our circle of friendship by inviting you to share your stories and experiences with us. You don’t have to be a full time country woman to benefit from joining us; you just have to be you.

The full-time country women featured in Ohio Country Journal are an inspiration to anyone who dares to follow her dreams, whether it is to live in the country or to bring the country life-style to their urban neighborhoods.

Keeping You in Stitiches

Today I will be traveling to one of the villages in the northern part of the county to interview a quilter who has done amazing work for her church.

Stay tuned to this blog to see pictures of her "windows" and to read her story. :)

Have you made a quilt or have been the recipient of an heirloom quilt? If so, share your story and pictures with us! Just go to the "contact me" page in the nav-bar and send me an email.
