Every year, we yearn to hear the sound of the horses as they travel down the local roads.  And every year we find something unique.  We have always seen laundry hung, even in the bitter cold, but this was an amazing line.  

At night, we are usually on the road to one of the local restaurants to enjoy another chicken dinner.  This particular night the sky was a red glow.  Perfect sunset after a busy day of sewing.
Our sewing room was always a buzz with creativity.  This fall the room was full of both old and new friends.  It was wonderful to reconnect and see everyone in person again. 
Luckily the weather cooperated when we ventured outside.  Happy to have a car and just watch the buggies and bicycles as we drove by them.

Show and tell on Friday night brought out several Dear Jane quilts including Claire's and Pat's.  Such creative quilters!

Shopping was not at the top of my list this year.  I am to the point where little fabric should be purchased unless there is a specific project. Tracy and I had planned to keep that promise.  After I found a few pieces for a gift quilt, she took the plunge and found fabrics for Bonnie's latest mystery, Easy Street.  Neither one of us had enough will power to go home without a little bit of Shipshewana.

With less time spent shopping I made progress on my daughter's quilt, along with taking on Rosemary's jelly roll challenge.  It was a wonderful retreat, and I look forward to next Spring.
