Shipshewana Dear Jane Retreat – Friday & Saturday


The time has been flying by so quickly. Would you believe it's 1:45 am on Sunday and I'm just getting the Friday and Saturday pictures to you?

I didn't go on the bus trip to the Amish dinner and to see the quilt exhibit on Thursday. I was working feverishly on my 3" swap blocks until three in the morning. They had to be finished before our designated swap time of "Friday at 11". I couldn't believe my eyes when I woke up and the clock said 10:49am. I had to be sitting in my seat at the table in just 20 minutes. I brushed my teeth, fluffed the hair and hoped yesterday's Bare Escentuals makeup would hold up for another hour. We had so much fun swapping those little blocks. We'll have another set ready for the retreat this fall.

Friday was a busy day with the swapping and shopping. Show and Tell was at 7:30PM.
Theresa, Rebecca and I enjoyed the fish at The Blue Gate for dinner. It was busy but we made it back to the sewing room in time. I didn't have the best seat for taking pictures so I'll let you know as soon as someone uploads their photos. As always there were lots of beautiful quilts to see.

I have to get some sleep. Enjoy the pictures and I'll post more Sunday night after I'm home and Clutch and I have had a nap.
