A Little Side Trip

I had to go to Grand Rapids this past weekend to see my sister and get some things done for her trip.  Prior to seeing her though I got to hang out with my friend, Windy. 
 I really wish she lived closer.  
We always have such a great time hanging out! 
 She is trying to get me to go to Stash Bash in the spring but we will see.  I
 know it would be fun, just not sure how things will work out with hubby out of work.  

We did stop at a few shops and I did manage to pick up a few things.

We went to Stitched Studio and got there just before they closed. 
 I got to meet the owner, Michelle.  
She was super friendly and I think she would be a lot of fun to hang out with too. 
 I picked up some Flatter
 Love that stuff.  
The Zombie fabric for some polaroids down the road, some more Sun Print text and 
that super groovy orange!  (think orange tiger cat)


We also went to Field's fabrics and I got some Full Moon Forest, and some of the ducks from Lizzy House.  The blue Peter Rabbit is for a cross stitch project I want to turn into a quilt and the green is for more polaroids.


We stopped in Mason on our way to GR and the fall leaves were gorgeous!



Don't these leaves just inspire you to make a fall quilt??  
I was under those big orange maples and it felt like I was in an enchanted forest.  
Very quiet and with an explosion of beautiful fall colors. 


I love the fall with all it's glorious display of color.  
Kind of reminds me of a resplendent peacock with fall feathers on display!

I just bought a bunch of sunprints too! I think they are nice with the hint of color for backgrounds. Love the zombie fabric.
