Retreating in Shipshewana

I arrived in Shipshewana, Indiana, on Thursday afternoon. My friend Pam, also of Indy, drives to the fall retreat. That was a no brainer because her car has heated seats. It is snowing today. There isn't much sticking, but the flurries are near white out at times. We are having a good time shopping, buying fabric and yarn, and eating at the Blue Gate restaurant. For those of you that have never been there, they have 34 different kinds of pie. There is so much pie and so little time. You can see that there is a bit of snow left on the ground that fell before we arrived.

The town is decorated for Christmas. The buildings and trees are lit at night, and there are Christmas trees and decorations everywhere. This is the little yarn shop here in town.

And, one of the nice things about this retreat is that Jeanne from Luv2Stitch and Gayle from Sentimental Stitches are both here at the retreat. You can link to their blogs at the right. Now I have to get back to the sewing room so I get something done today. More tomorrow.
