The Best Weekend Ever

February 7, 2011

I'm home from my retreat to Shipshewana IN.  I had such a wonderful time eating, shopping and some sewing!  I think I ended up doing more of the first two than the latter.  I took so many pictures, I don't even know where to begin.  I'll start with where we stayed.  We stayed at the most wonderful bed and breakfast, Hidden Creek.  Gretchen was our wonderful hostess.  She made us feel right at home.  Her mother has another BB across the road called Song Bird Ridge.  I highly recommend staying at either place if you are visiting Shipshewana.  Now for a little tour of Hidden Creek...
A nice warm welcome.
This was the warm, cozy living room before we set our sewing stations up. 
After we did some remodeling.  We had more than ample room for sewing.
Wonderful, inviting bedrooms.  Each with their own bathrooms. 
Our very own kitchen.  We ate only one meal out the whole time.  My friend Kathy was in charge of food and brought delicious meals and snacks for us to enjoy!

We really enjoyed our stay.  I only wish I would have gotten a photo from the front of the house.  Gretchen and her family live upstairs of the BB in a very beautiful home.  Every morning we enjoyed a delicious breakfast prepared fresh by Gretchen.  We would wake up to this every morning!  The view out the windows was breath taking.

Fresh cinnamon rolls!!  As I said earlier, I think I did more eating than sewing!!  I'm on a "back from Shipshewana" diet!

Thank you, Gretchen for opening your wonderful home to us!  We'll see you next February!

Tomorrow I'll post the places we visited in Shipshewana.  I have way too much for just one post!!  Plus, I need to get caught up with all my blogging I missed out on last weekend!

  2. I am so glad you had a wonderful time in Indiana! I actually lived in Middlebury (One town over) for 10 years. 3 years ago we made a life change and moved to Montana. Now here is the really sad thing--I did not quilt back then! I can hardly believe the time that was wasted! Glad to see the cinnamon rolls are still huge!
