Shop Hop 2014 – Day 1

The theme for the yarn shop hop this year is Local Color!  Our local color?  The historic Minnesota State Prison.  The first Federal prison in the state of MN.  Governor Alexander Ramsey, in 1853 said “there should be proper and safe places of confinement” for prisoners in the new territory.  Stillwater was the place for prisoners in 1853!   Read all about the history here.

We dressed the tree up as a convict.

So, we thought maybe we’d find a few more convicts:)
