Somehow day 2 and day 3 of our retreat have melded together and just slipped away. It could be all of that talking and eating. I'm sure the lack of sleep has quite a bit to do with that, too. Thursday started with a trip outside of Shipshewana into Amish country. First stop was the Red Skillet over at Rome City. I don't have a photo so imagine a red building that looks like a red metal farm building that sits back off of the road. I had bacon, eggs and toast here for breakfast. The idea was to have a good breakfast so that I would make good shopping decisions.
First stop was Caroline's Cottage Cottons in Rome City, Indiana. Caroline's is a small quilt shop in a house a block off of the main highway. I bought a little bit of fabric there.
I had a list of fabrics I wanted to buy for projects that I have in mind. This is a fat quarter pack of blue and cheddar reproduction fabrics. This was the first thing I bought that wasn't on my list. But it was a nice pack and it was wrapped up with a frilly bow. I know I'll find a use for it.
Then I found this piece of Jo Morton border print. This was the second thing that wasn't on my list, but I love gold and rust so I know this one will find its way into a project one day.
These pieces of fabric said, "Pick me up and buy me." They weren't on the list either, but I just love them. At this point I just stopped looking at that list and shopped on pure instinct.
Next it was on to Knitting Today at Wolcotville.
I hope you are all stitching today. Thanks for visiting.
