Dear Jane Shipshewana – Thursday


Good morning - I can still say that because it's only 11:30 am. Some people stayed up until 2 am sewing and are just getting in the shower. I on the other hand had the good sense to go to bed at 1:30 am so I could be up early. So much for that plan - well, I was up at 8 and have been working on this post on and off since then.

I took 120 pictures yesterday and hope you'll enjoy today's slide show. I wish I had thought to take a picture of the herd of women waiting to check in when the sewing room opened. It was a hoot! The big red barn you'll see is where we stitch.

I didn't do much shopping yesterday. I picked up my Hello Betty fabric from Yoder's and bought every piece of the new Robert Kaufman chambrays at Lolly's. They are soooooo beautiful. They look like Kaffe Fassett shot cottons with the ombre look but I like the weight and feel of the cotton better. They're only $6 a yard. There's lots of kits and fabric packs in today's show. They're all from Lolly's and I'm sure they will mail things out if you'd like a little piece of Shipshewana or want more information.

It's a beautiful day outside so I going out to enjoy it. Still haven't started on those 3" blocks I need to make. They need to be finished by Friday at 11. Maybe a prayer would be in order!
