Last Wednesday was our FIRST Shop Hop…we visited ‘The Wool Lady’, then moseyed on over to ‘Temecula Quilt Co.’, followed by a new to us shop, ‘The Grand Country Quilter’ in San Marcos. It turned out to be a nine hour trip but speaking for the Seattle Judy, Claire and myself, we were tired but extremely happy at the end of the day…let’s just say the chauffeur was happy to get home!! He was a real trouper!
It was in this room that we spent most of our time…cut wool on three walls of this shop…and bolts of wool all around the bottom! Prices were high but wool seems to have gone up in price in some of the shops!
Feast your eyes on this wall of wool patterns…mostly wool applique and rug hooking. YOWZERS!
Yup…we managed to find some lovely things to buy!! The Wool Lady informed us that wool was going up to $42 a yard in her shop as of February!! OUCH!!
Then it was off to Temecula Quilt Co…. FOCUS Judy!!
That’s better…! Can you read Judy’s mind… “Just take the picture so that we can go IN!!”
Ohhh…how we LOVED this shop!! It’s small but packed with goodness!
Go ahead and wander….
SEW…there you have it! Lots and lots of eye candy and sweet little quilts!! We had such fun in this shop!!
Everywhere we went the shop owners were wonderful about us taking pictures! Tomorrow I will take you to San Marcos and ‘The Grand Country Quilter’!! Hang onto your seats!
The sad news is..today Claire leaves for home…with only a couple of pounds to spare in her suitcase! (anything over 50lbs and you pay extra!) Now that was one FAST and FUN week of quilting fun…OK technically there was NO quilting actually DONE but we sure had fun buying quilting THINGS…;0) The party is over but the memories and pictures linger… Yup…this retired life is good…right Claire!!
Have a terrific Tuesday and Happy Quilting!~P
