Another Wednesday



After the Dear Jane Shipshewana Retreat last spring, a package arrived from Brenda Papadakis (author of Dear Jane and Dear Hannah) containing a fat quarter of fabric with fried eggs on it. My sister, Connie and I were given the name 'Chicken Sisters' many years ago by Deb and JoAnn of Minnesota. Every spring we seem to have a chicken incident. Last year was a doozy. That is why Brenda sent the fabric to each of us along with a challenge to make a wallhanging at least 18" square. She tempted us with a free meal of our choice at the retreat this year if we completed the challenge. From left to right, Deb, JoAnn, me and Connie. We had a delicious lunch at The Garden Gate in Shipshewana. This picture is 'borrowed' from Deb's blog.

Monday I took a bus with ladies from my church to the dinner/theater at Turkeyville. The show was called "Church Basement Ladies, A Second Helping" and was hilarious. Turkeyville is located in Battle Creek and everything on the menu has turkey in it. There's also an ice cream parlor, gift shop, and bakery besides the restaurant and theater. There's a little shop outside behind the tractor that is closing soon. I bought this cute apron made from an old pair of jeans there.
