Wonderful Retreat!

The retreat was fabulous! I got 5 projects moving along and one completed. I finished Daisy Chain using many 30's fabrics I have had stashed for years. I loved taking walks in the Amish country and enjoyed visiting the quilt shops. I found a great little place that had quiche with broccoli or zucchini and tomatoes and had to eat there twice because it was so good. It came with a warm wheat roll and a dish of grapes, pineapple, and melon drizzled with a raspberry sauce. I couldn't have asked for more. I only managed to swim one evening and then forget to bring my suit home. If found, they said they would mail it to me.

After leaving Shipshewanna, I stopped at a friend's house about a 1/2 hour away. (When you get lost, it takes a bit more time) I chatted away for 4 hours and ate the most wonderful black bean, pepper, onion, carrot concoction with corn chips and drank mugs of hot tea. Such a beautiful day!

I got one of my pieced Baltimore Album done. I still need to tweak some points a bit. There were 98 pieces in this silly block. Is it any wonder I don't have more done?
