Shipshewana Dear Jane Retreat – Day 1

Advertisements:

Arrived here about 9:21 pm last night. It took me nearly 4 hours to get here from Chicago - could have driven back to Grand Rapids and then here in that amount of time. I was mighty tired and hungry but there was East of Chicago waiting for me with the "Open" sign shining brightly. A yummy flash pizza was to be my dinner. I'd survive.

I wish it hadn't been so dark - parked right behind me when I came out was a pick-up truck filled with old fashioned white wringer washers. Only a sight you'd see in Shipshe and the kind of thing we treasure. If I see the truck again today I'll take a picture.

Here's a few pictures from Fabricganza at Troy. Aisles and aisles of fabric bolts.











This beautiful quilt was made by Margo Krager. It's hand pieced and hand quilted. Little 3" star blocks in double pinks and indigo.




These beautiful 1930s are from Blue Hill Fabrics. I'll tell you in the next post how you can win some of this fabric. I'll be giving it all away - how fun is that?


Off to get a pretzel for brunch at JoJo's!
