Last week I finally returned to the Wool Lady Shop in Old Town Temecula…How cute is this!?…LOVE this shop!!image

Picture wall to wall shelves of lovely soft wool in a rainbow of colours!  My friend, Judy was favourably impressed…in fact she was down right speechless…!

Wow, what a shop! I'm just drooling over all those wools!

You bought a lovely selection of colours-great taste with the quilt:) I have just posted my almost completed first three blocks and I am soooo loving working with the wools and the Japanese wovens.

Away for another lookie at that yummy shop:)

How can you make up your mind with so many outstanding choices? Can't wait to see your "Autumn" project done. We have Winter here right now, literally covered in snow!

Linda said...

That shop looks fantastic! Oh and all that wool, woo lie heaven! Love the pieces you picked up!

Shakerwood said...

OMG! California, here I come ..... (insert music here) Just have to go and visit!!

Brenda said...

What a yummy shop. I wouldn't know where to start. I think my mouth would be hanging open. I could definitely spend a long time there. I haven't found a good wool store in NH.

Beth said...

I love that snowman one too. I might just have to make a trip down there on Saturday...She was closed the last time I was down at Quilter's Coop.

Darlene said...

What a delightful shop - I know you two had lots of fun. :-)

Karen said...

Heavenly! We don't have any kind of shop like this or carries even 1/4 of that kind of stuff. Darn.

Elyte said...

What a beautiful assortment of colour and projects. The Autumn project is a stunner and as I hope to be in the US in the fall this year maybe I can pick up some of these autumnal beauties myself (if I can trick the family into finding a quilt shop or two).

mariebeers said...

My eyes have turned green with envy. Love what you bought. Can't wait to see your project done--along with all your others--lol!

Barbara said...

Oh the fun I could have in that shop, although it would be so difficult to control myself! (Let's see, I'll take one of those, and one of those...and...oh heck, I'll take one of EVERYTHING!)

Lise said...

Oh dear, as I drool all over my laptop..you went again LOLOL..I guess I wouldn't be able to resist either..so drooling still lolol..have to find a shop here in Ontario to go loose myself in... happy travels..ps: love all your finds on here...

Gail said...

Did you just hear that 'thunk'?

That was me swooning and falling off my chair!

OMG! Don't let me near that shop. I'd definitely have to mortgage the house!

Love that quilt, Paulette...and of course your purchases.

Wanted: Vacation time and some extra money to head to The Wool Lady Shop!
Paulette do they have a web site?
Most amazing store, I would probably get really dizzy in here.
Thank you for sharing!

Oh my ! Who managed to finally drag you out of the store!!! What a great place to fed a great addiction! I too loved the snowman! He would fit right in at our house...we are still knee deep!
