It was a regular work week this week with the exception of it being the Western Washington shop hop. It doesn't really constitute a statutory holiday, but at our office we made Friday the designated day off. Work vs Shop Hop...after work you get to go home and relax. After shop hopping, you get to go home and work!
Debs and I had a blast, we traveled to stores that we had never been in. It was an opportunity to see a few other stores that are within 75 miles of home. When I head out on these shopping days, I like to have a plan. I like having a plan so I don't come home with a bag of beautiful fabric that doesn't work with anything. This day I chose white on white, I need more of these because I've been working on this. I'll post about this later in the week.
Even the best laid plans can go sideways. The first couple of shops didn't have a selection of white on white, so I had to buy colors.
Fabrics Etc in Bellingham, and when they ran up my purchase, they started blowing a horn and I hear "we have a winner"! Whohoo to me, the same thing happened at the same store at the last shop hop. I really did stick to my plan of w.o.w.'s
I could not resist these fabrics or this book.
I'm a sucker for any books on vintage quilts and since my dad gave me a few dollars for my birthday, I spent them on this book. I also bought a few fabrics at Two Thimbles. I love books on vintage quilts. Don't you just love the old black & whites of days gone by?
It was a great day. The shops really put a lot of effort into this shop hop and it was great to see some new shops in my area.
