Tuesday Tip 1: Take some time to enjoy the roses, get away with family and/or friends. Last Tuesday I was in Shipshewana for the Quilt Show. We got in some early shopping at A Little Bit of Lolly's in the basement of Davis Mercantile before the quilt show opened. They had a happy hour of $1.50 fat quarters from 5-6pm. We also enjoyed the local flea market on Tuesday. Both Tuesday and Wednesday nights we ate at the Blue Gate Restaurant. The homestyle food is so good.
While on our trip I didn't work on handwork, instead I was reading Whiskey Beach by Nora Roberts. I miss reading and had picked the book up at the airport in LasVegas because we were going to be waiting for our flight for a couple of hours. It was a great book and I finished it after we got home from Shipshewana.
Tip 2: Use the App - Axis 360 for accessing books. My next adventure in reading will probably be in audio books. My friend, Corry, introduced me to the application for your phone or IPad called Axis 360. It allows you to check out books from your local library. You must have a library card from your library first! I was able to simply sign-up on line and enter my library card number and boom, I was connected to a whole library of e-books and audio books. I will be turning off the TV and listening to more books. This will be so much easier than running back and forth to library to pick up audio book tapes/CDs.
Tip 3: Below are updates for the free patterns I have been posting.

Yours in quilting,
