Shipshewana Quilt Retreat: Day 1

You know you've arrived in Shipshewana, Indiana, when you see your first horse and buggy. 
The quilting can't officially start until you have a little bag of fabrics from Lollys.
Of course, you have to "fish" for fat quarters in the boat.
Chicken and  noodles at The Blue Gate is always on the menu.
And, we always need at least one cupcake from The Garden Gate Cafe.
Having fun visiting with old friends that have come to the retreat and missing those that weren't able to make it.  We know you are here with us in spirit.  Now I actually have to do some sewing since it is a quilt retreat. 

I hope all of you are finding some time to stitch and maybe even eat a cupcake today. 

Thanks for visiting!
