Shop Hop Continued

The next place we stopped was Everlasting Stitches in Holt. I had never been there before and was pleasantly surprised by this shop. Isn't it cute?

I bought these wonderful fabrics for that Gourdy's Gang pattern! Don't you think these will be great?? And really, can one have too many dots? I love that pattern for the block envelope too. I'd like to make some of those to store some of my projects in.

Next up on the hop is Wendy's Simple Stitches. I love Wendy's. It's a relatively small shop but they always have a nice selection as well as a great sale room. Yes an entire room!

Look at this beautiful version of Hocuspocusville that Wendy made.

It was now almost 5pm and the last shop was 30-45 minutes away. So we called them and they were having their first sew in and would be open and they invited us to come on in! So we got in the car and we drove there. Huron River Quilts in Milford. Owned by 2 sisters and they have been in business for only 2 years. It was such a friendly shop with a lot of cute things. Here's Ann one of the owners waiting on us. They had snacks for their sew in but they shared those with us too. How nice are they?? You need to go and visit them.

I really loved this witch pattern, but was buying some more fabric, shocker, I know! Maybe next time.

So of course I had to buy a little more fabric here too. Found some amazing stripe for different basket handles as well as , you guessed it, more reindeer browns. Can you tell I lack brown in my stash??

So then we had just one last stop and it was HOME. Here are the women I rode with and only PTM's and my (1) bag. Yes we had a productive shopping trip. I already have 2 reindeer done, but that will have to wait to be seen later.

I am trying to keep up the posting every day and I need photos for you so you keep coming back, right??
