She was such a cool lady - we talked for over 1/2 an hour! Loved Her! See the bags behind me? Nanci - I am making you one for your birthday! The blue and orange ones... they are so very cool!
We left my house at 8:00 am and came home at 11:30 pm. We went as far south as Orting WA and as far Northwest as Sequim WA. Had sooooo much fun! I fell in love with the town Port Gamble! The Quilted Strait quilt shop was such a neat place to shop in there! The homes on the water were so picturesque! It was just like looking at a movie set!
Esther's Quilt Shop on Bainbridge Island was another favorite! We just had so much fun at these two shops. My normally thrifty daughter, Sara, was dropping $100 bills like they were flies! I've never seen her spend so much money! And my friend, Caryn, OMG - she went crazy too! But you know, it was so easy to spend money on this hop! We found so much material on sale for $6 a yard or 30% off. Was hard to resist! Miss Nanci - you have got to come out here again and we do the shop hop together! So very much fun!!!! Since you are my quilting buddy in crime - we must do this together one year! We have room just waiting for you in my suv!
Our other favorite shop was Material Girls in Silverdale. Sadly, they are closing so we won't be seeing them on any future shop hops. The owners have retired to Arizona and the daughter is slowly closing the shop. This is where I got the material for Makena's quilt at 30% off.
Another favorite shop was "Heirloom Quilts" in Poulsbo. We found so much fabric there too! Just a great selection to be tempted by!
Can't remember how many coffees I had yesterday - but what a fun day! Unfortunately you have to hit 16 shops in order to be eligible for the drawing of the prizes of the shop hop. We only got to 11. I am so pooped - don't think I can go out today to do more... won't get to send my 'passport' in. But that is okay!
