yesterday afternoon being on the road for a few hours
stopping at even another fabric shop for respite
from Saturday and Sunday:
from two full days of fabric shop-hopping
A Patchwork Tours shop hop in and around the east of Texas. There were 50 happy shoppers on our bus that started at Stitchin' Heaven in Mineola and stopped along the way at seven more fabric shops, ending again for more shopping at Stitchin' Heaven. There were 8 buses in total, each filled with 50. The shops were happy! Imagine having 400 customers, pockets filled with credit cards, coming through your shop in two days. That's a lot of green!
One of my favorite finds - "hipster hare" from The Alexander Henry Fabric Collections. I saw this umbrella at Quilt Con Savannah and have been searching for this fabric......I'm sure I didn't buy enough yardage for the umbrella, but I know good things will come from it.
Ginger and I joined eight of our Lafayette quilting friends and enjoyed a weekend of shopping and sharing. It goes without saying that our pocketbooks were lighter as our bags got heavier.
Now I'm recovered and ready to start sewing up some of that fresh new fabric.
Before I left home Friday, I finished hand quilting my improv half-rectangle triangles. Big and bold stitches just tie this one down beautifully and fits right in with the improv style.
