This is the Fayette County Courthouse in downtown West Union, Iowa!
I took this photo on Wednesday night – the evening of our arrival for this retreat weekend. The sun was setting at just the right angle to reflect the sky in those windows.
Complete with clock front and center, this building makes me feel like I’m in a redo of the movie “Back to the Future!”
The weather has been perfect!
I even caught the moon in the mandatory water tower photo:
I see the moon and the moon sees me!
This is our row of buildings!
Here we are!
This is the home of Moonlight Stitching Studio and Sisters Retreat Center! There is a small shop on the bottom level as well as our large and well lit sewing area and kitchen. Upstairs are the sleeping quarters!
Iron bedsteads ready for dreaming!
Lots of giggles and late night chatter happen here!
Loads of cozy corners!
And a bowl of ear plugs – just in case!
Beds are covered in colorful quilts --
Antique dressers and other furnishings add a cozy touch.
Isn’t this fun?
Even vintage sewing machines!
Just like home.
Cute little kitchen areas too!
Such a cute little town with everything we need for days of retreating pleasure!
Summer in Iowa – it just can’t be beat!
If you are in the area, or thinking about a wonderful place to hold your own retreat, be sure to check in at Moonlight Stitching Studio and give them a look-see!
