I am blessed to have one of the greatest groups of friends down here, some of us get together and we swapped blocks this year. The next time we come to the retreat, we will be assembling our blocks into small quilts. Each of the blocks represent something special in Shipshewana..

Have a wonderful day,
Rosemary

If you ever are in Rome Indiana which is about a 20 minute drive from Shipshewana Indiana, a must stop is Caroline’s cottage. It is one of the cutest shops I’ve ever seen, she has a great selection of reproduction fabrics, Civil War as well as 1930s, wonderful ideas to look at in the shop, packets of fabrics and kits, just a great place to be.

I love a shop that orders the entire collection of a fabric. I just fell in love with the enduring legacy collection by Judie Rothermel.

20140408-173803.jpg

I bought the kit and everything, and if you spend a certain amount in the shop, you get a beautiful crown.

Shipshewana week

Having a great time in Shipshewana, loving the sunshine and warmer weather. Looks like we might have temperatures in the 60s most of the week.

Arrived early with my daughter and grandchildren so they can spend some time swimming over spring break.

Sending pictures, hope you all have a great week and find some time to stitch. More pictures to follow.

Happy stitching,
Rosemary
