Shipshewana Retreat

Vicki and I spied this block at Rebecca Haarer's shop in Shipshewana this past weekend.  The sales clerk graciously opened the quilt, and put it on the bed for us to explore.
Pretty cool, right?  The quilt hanging behind the bed is great, too.

At Yoder's, this 30's repro placemat caught my eye.  So did the tea cozy design.

We had a wonderful time shopping on Friday, sewing on Saturday and Sunday, and we squeezed in a bit more sewing on Monday morning before heading for home.  I'll share what I worked on in my next post.   It should be finished up by then, in between baking, and wrapping gifts.  I'm still waiting for a present to arrive, and it's a fun one, too.  I called today, and it hasn't even shipped yet!

I have never been there and so want to go. There is really not excuse not to go. It isn't THAT far from home. One of these days I am going to enjoy all the eye candy that everyone enjoys while they are in Shipshewana. Merry Christmas
