for the past few months i have been deeply engrossed in Jane Kirkpatrick's trilogy about the Aurora Colony here in Oregon in the 1800's.
it is a fasinating story and her books do not stray far from the truth of the colony that settled right here in Oregon.
i love the history of the story and i'm even more interested because i live only 30 minutes from where this story unfolded.
this website seems to have a lot of good information about the Colony and i look forward to visiting the museum very soon.
of course, it interests me because the woman of the Colony were quilters and i would love to gaze upon some of the quilts.
