After a weekend of wedding celebrations, we decided to head home instead of going on to Minneapolis. My husband got off the highway and pulled in front of this quilt store. He'd found it on the Internet and surprised me. Such a sweet man!! It's a new shop... grand opening next weekend. It's in a small Wisconsin town about 15 minutes from Minneapolis/St. Paul, MN. It's called Sew Little Time and I almost hyperventilated when I walked in the door. Oh my goodness!!! There was soooo much and it was all displayed so invitingly. I didn't know where to go first.
I just started a pile on the counter and kept adding to it. And it grew... and grew... and grew like Jack's beanstalk.
"You wouldn't have any fabric by Kaffe Fassett?" Oh yes! Just about every pattern he has designed. I was dying for his fabric, but had placed an online order for 'a bunch' last week and couldn't remember what I'd ordered. But, to see it in person, and touch it... I just bought more. I played with it in the car during our 4 hour drive home from the shop and put together the color combinations for a quilted bag and other projects. I also bought books and patterns and Timtex and toys. What a fun week this is going to be.
In the shop bathroom (someday I'm going to do a post about 'bathrooms around the world'... have had some wild experiences), the wall was a deep green and covered with quilt booklets and patterns. etc. framed in clear Lucite frames. My photo colors are really off, but it was such an attractive display. I had a friend that did the same thing in her kitchen with cooking magazine covers. Neat idea.
The shop will have an online store... http://www.atimetosew.com/. Check it for the latest!
Dinner time... tomorrow we start much-needed Weight Watchers.
