Shipshewana Day 3


Stayed up way too late last night talking quilting and slept in this morning so I had to make tracks today. I did some sewing this morning and went out for shopping around noon. Just in time for a cinnamon-sugar pretzel from JoJo's. It was soooo good. I'm going to have that for lunch again tomorrow!

I thought you might like to see the Davis Mercantile from the outside. The photo is of the rear entrance. It is still raining around here so hopefully tomorrow it will let up and you'll get to see Morton and Harrison streets.

I got some great shirting prints by Chuck Nohara from Japan. It's been decided (not by me) that I should be in charge of a challenge using these beauties. One of the shirtings has a picture of a lobster in a top hat. How cute is that? I also chose some bright and cheerful fabrics from the Lakehouse Dayz collection.
I couldn't resist the cute Chihuahua socks and a couple of soft pastel repro prints.

When you walk in the front doors of Yoder Department Store you're met by a long hallway. One the left side we have fabric, clothing, shoes, linens, etc. On the right side you'll find the groceries, hardware, dishes, crafts, lamps and just about anything you can think of.

There are usually two or three quilts on display for a raffle to benefit something in the community.

They have the largest selection of Crocs I've ever seen.

As you can see there's a lot of shopping and eating going on and not too much sewing today. I have two more blocks from the book Dear Hannah to finish for a block swap and then I planned to work on some Midget Blocks but saw a kit for a summer purse at Lolly's and might just need to make that first. Pictures of my sewing coming your way tomorrow.

    […] Chuck Nohara fabric at Lolly’s. Who knows what it will be this time? I think it’s time for a couple of tutorials too. Did you see the great rotating pressing station The Quilt Show was talking about? It caught my eye and I plan on putting one together (if I didn’t leave my lazy susan in Traverse City) tonight or tomorrow and thought you might like to follow along. You don’t have to gather much together; cotton batting, string and fabric large enough to cover your ’susan’. They suggested the round lazy susan from Linens ‘n Things for $24. I on the other hand went to Walmart and got mine for $9.88! KMart shows them online but I don’t know if they have them in their stores. Check around, it shouldn’t be too hard to find one. If all else fails there’s ebay. […]
