Dear Jane Retreat

broken star top with Jasper sitting on it
Well, here I am not caught up with anything, but I'm leaving in the morning for another retreat. This is the tenth year that retreats have been held in Shipshewana, Indiana for the Dear Jane group. We have Edyta Sitar as our speaker on Friday, so I had to get my Broken Star top into one piece. Jasper gave it his approval sitting. There will be many finished ones for show and tell, too.

I finished the last two stitcheries from Bea at Capricorn Quilts. Finally, a BOM where I am keeping pace.

Today the mail brought the most wonderful gift from May Britt. She had my name for the polka dot and rick rack swap. I'll have to take pictures after the retreat. Everything she sent is terrific. More on this later.....
