Well we are heading home…tonight we are staying at a KOA camp that could easily be the setting for a Stephen King novel…dark and gloomy with lots of fir trees and hardly any other campers…. Creepy…but the good news is..we are just outside of Portland, Oregon which means we should be home tomorrow! Whooopteeedoooo!! It’s great to go on a holiday and leave Winter behind…BUT there is NOTHING like going home!
I did lots of stitching today…working on the Baskets of Life blocks by JAM (JoAnn from Wool Crazy fame..) It’s a good thing that it’s suppose to look primitive because my stitches are all over the place!! The road was SO bumpy! Get ‘er done is my motto…here’s a peak…
See~ there are three stems without flowers…this is where I will appliqué three woollen stars.
Also I HAVE to show you my LAST quilt shop of this year’s Snowbirding trip… all good thing must come to an end!! The LUCKY quilters of Salt Lake have got two award winning shops…both voted in the top 10!! Material Girls Quilting was featured in Quilt Sampler Spring /Summer 2008! I was lucky enough to pop in for a quick visit on our last day in Salt Lake City. I was only able to get a few shots at the entrance to the shop but I think you get the idea!
There was an overload to the senses walking into this shop. So much to see..I loved all the baby quilts..you can see some of them in the picture below.
The quilter’s economy is going strong…look at how busy this shop is…at first I thought there must be a sale happening..but no…just a lot of quilting happening in Salt Lake City!
Salt Lake City and area have an abundance of Quilt shops…the Quilter’s Haven and Material Girls Quilting being just two of them!
So that’s it for this Snow birder's Shop Hop for 2010! Hope you enjoyed it as much as I did? Do you have any favourites? I know I do..! Who knows.. you might just get to visit some of these wonderful shops!
Have a fun Friday and Happy Quilting!!
