These are my swap blocks for the DJ Alternate list H2H Swap, which I worked on at the DJ Retreat in Shipshe last week. I made them using Fairy Frost, which I thought would be so appropriate for a heart swap. We are each using any heart pattern, applique, pieced, whatever, embellished or Plain Janes, in 6" blocks. It should make into a wonderful quilt.

This horse & buggy is hitched up to the hitching post awaiting its passengers, who are doing errands in town. I took this picture for the contrast and blend of cultures. Notice the very modern electric wires in the background, the Wells Fargo stage coach on the sign, and the transportation for a traditional Amish family. This is a very common site in Shipshewana. I loved the clip-clop of the horses.
Now it's back home to reality. But, the Dear Jane retreat was wonderful.

The snow storm is beautiful. We have about double the amount in the photos now, and it is expected to continue on into the night.
As long as I can get out for my Dear Jane Retreat in Shipshewana on Wednesday, I'm fine with it. So pretty, and so Dr. Zhiavago'ish.
