I'm sorry it's been awhile since I've posted an entry. Sometimes life gets in the way and sometimes it's because of life and shop hopping! How about 2 days of shop hopping!!
(I've been sitting here for a very long time trying to get the photos arranged where I want them but blogger isn't cooperating so I apologize for that). You'll have to put the photo with the paragraph yourself. :(
Thursday, 3 of us headed out into Salt Lake City for a hop. We went to 3 shops, 2 of which I'd never been. The first one was Whimsy Cottage in Holladay. Wow....she had a great selection of batiks. We spent awhile looking around, touching the fabrics, and admiring the quilts on the walls. I bought a few fat quarters (the basicgrey aqua was a freebie at Material Girls). In the photo the reindeer are looking out of place, but they won't be with the fat quarters I picked up last week.
The second shop, Elaine's Quilt Block in Cottonwood, was a spectacular shop....3 large rooms and a basement full of fabrics, projects...eye candy everywhere! So much to see and touch! However, I really restrained myself and only picked up 2 fat quarters that I am hoping to use in a black, brown, and cream quilt.
The third shop was Material Girls in South Jordan. That was a fun shop. After roaming around the store, I saw the sale section and couldn't believe the charm packs were going for $6 and then I'd get 10% off that.....how could I resist? I picked up two of the Martinique packs, along with the red yardage. Yesterday I picked up the aqua yardage at Brooks. I think a Schnibbles is in my future with those charms.
Friday, 2 of us hit 6 stores! Yep, 6 of them. We stayed closer to home, hitting Quilter's Haven and Brooks in Bountiful, Ben Franklin in Kaysville, Nuttalls in Sunset, Sweet Lavendar in Roy and finally Gardiner's in Ogden. I had a great coupon for Ben Franklin so I picked up the white and yellow yardage there. The white is probably going to go with the reindeer and other fat quarters I picked up last week and the Nancy Halvorsen yellow will go with the Christmas string quilt I was supposed to do last year. Hoping to get back to that soon!
I had a great time both days.....shop hopping and lunch with friends....who could ask for more?!
