Happy Thanksgiving!

I spent a fabulous few days at The Jane Stickle Quilt Retreat in Shipshewana, Indiana last week. One hundred and twenty quilters from all over the world sewing, laughing and sharing all in the same room! On Thursday evening, over
half of us donned our pink, sewing themed pajamas from Target and had our photo taken together. That's a lot of pink in one place!

On Saturday, we watched all day as the first snowfall blanketed the area and kept us inside for the most part.

At this retreat many of us sewed little dresses and shorts for children in Africa. The final total was almost 50 dresses and 7 shorts. This is one of the clotheslines that was hung.

Finally, a couple of pictures from Yoders Department Store. Five quilt blocks on the outside of the building and oodles and oodles of pre-cuts waiting inside.

                                       Wishing everyone a Happy Thanksgiving!
