Yesterday my oldest daughter Kelli and I traveled to our favorite quilt shop, Country Threads. We had a marvelous time…bought goodies galore and made it home with less money in our wallet but with a definitely a happy heart. I totally love going there. It’s a 80 minute drive from here so there’s plenty or talk time too.
I tried to stay goal oriented when I went. I carried a couple projects with so that I wouldn’t be tempted buy too many things and start even more projects. Here’s what I left the store with….
There’s 4.5 yards of fabric total. There’s fabric to make the base part of this project….four fat quarters of Civil War reproduction fabrics and 1/4 yard of the red for a project I need to get working on.
Typically I go HOG wild when I’m there but this time, I restrained. I tried to be a bit more project focused. I have lots more goodies to show you….more things I bought, more techniques I learned about….LOTS of shop photos. So for my stash report….
