What happens in Yucca, STAYS in Yucca…NOT!! I’m such a blab!
Yesterday eight Clubhouse Quilters piled into two trucks for our annual trek to Yucca Valley (about a half hour drive).
Just down the street from the Thrift Shop was Fabric Depot. I made the the ladies line up for our annual picture! Come on and SMILE!!
This is JoAnne’s first time at Fabric Depot…yup, she is happy with what she sees…SO MUCH eye candy!!
Tons of fabric….
A wall of beading supplies….
Crafts supplied by the local Artisans…
And a wall of notions on the other side of the room…
Valentine’s Day jewellery…
Oh…and yarn for the knitters!
And lots of bargains to be found!
Then it was off to Mimi’s! JoAnne REALLY wanted a picture under this sign as her grandsons’ call her Mimi…YUP…you guessed it!! Can’t see the MIMI’S… I am SUCH a great photographer…NOT! The only thing missing is the Mimi’s…but let’s blame it on the SUN…it really was BLINDING!!:o)
Inside was lots of quilting goodness…and we all managed to leave behind some $$!! We DO like to do our share for the local economy!! It’s the least we can do…
Check out the dogs and cats and the quilted words…very sweet!!
Mimi has a long arm set up in her shop where she quilts quilts in her ‘free time’…
Looks like Mimi is begging Pauline to spend more money…SEW she did!! Mimi gave us all 10% off for coming in as a group!! Mimi is a very smart lady!
Yes, we formed a line-up at the cutting table!
Now I wasn’t going to buy a thing on this trip BUT they were practically giving this stuff away!! What’s a quilter to do??
At the Thrift Shop I found this wool thread (insert happy dance!!) Such wonderful colours!! AND check out the price… “SCORE!!”
At Fabric Depot I found this fabric…on sale for $3.99 a yard (Both striped fabric are from Michael Miller…perfect for bindings and backings!!) “SCORE!!”
And at Mimi’s this baby fabric was ONLY $4.99 a yard!! We all came home with some of this sweet print!! How could we not…DANG CUTE!! “SCORE!!” “SCORE!!” “SCORE!!” “SCORE!!” “SCORE!!” “SCORE!!” “SCORE!!” “SCORE!!” …times eight!
Then it was off to a restaurant for lunch…the perfect way to end a day with the girls!! No pictures here…we were too busy eating…and talking…and laughing..Such a rowdy group!!
Yup…a good time was had by ALL!
Have a FUN Friday and Happy Stitching!~P
