Shop Hop and Lake Retreat

Last Friday I went up to Kokomo to a Shop Hop. It didn't take much effort to "hop" because there were 24 vendors all in the same location. We got there fairly early in the morning, and by noon some of the booths were so crowded that you could hardly move around.


After we went to lunch at the McAllister's Deli in Kokomo (love their iced tea), we went on over to Heritage Lake to our annual Maple Stickler quilt retreat. This porch is so inviting. There is a gorgeous view of the lake, and it is a great place to sit and stitch with friends.

I spent some time down here by the water just enjoying the view.

This is the view of the lake house from down by the water.
There were lots of cute quilts displayed all over the cottage.  This one hanging over the upstairs railing was one of my favorites:
Janis was working on this quilt:

Lynn was doing applique' on the border of her Women of the Bible quilt.

This is one of Edith's Aunt Millie's blocks:

And another:




These are a few of my Trick or Treat baskets from When the Cold Wind Blows.


Edith's Heart and Hand applique quilt.  She was sewing the bind on.  It is wonderful. 


Elaine's applique' butterflies:

Nancy was working on a setting for some antique blocks:

Marie was doing some hand quilting:



Theresa's baskets from When The Cold Wind Blows:

One last look at the lake as we were leaving.
It's been back to reality this week.  I've been doing a bit of sewing......I hope you have too.

What a beautiful place for a retreat. It must have been really hard to leave. The porch is my idea of a vacation.
