Mini Road Trip
Well I had my little shopping fix today, went to Lynden Washington and shopped at Tangled Threads and then over to Folk Tales, they are both very nice shops. At Tangled Threads I bought a Buggy Barn pattern and 3 FQ of 30's fabrics which you can see I've already started to cut up. Folk Tales is my favourite store, she has all the latest patterns, books, and lots of hand dyed embroidery thread. She had a display of Crabapple Hill's newest patterns "Pillow Samplers" of all the seasons with beading, "Frilly Ribbons" needle case and pincushion and "Pocketbook Charmers", they were all very cute but I held back since I have so many of her designs that I haven't stitched yet. I always find something I like and get so much inspiration from this cute tiny store. The store is part of her house, the entry is at street level and her house is up above, not a bad job...no commuting. Too bad she doesn't have a website to show you. I did find some things I needed to purchase, 2.5 yds of beige with tiny blue stars and another 1 yd of beige with small clusters of flowers. Also there was a patten that found it's way into my bag, Miss Rosie's "Going Buggy" pattern. I should visit Folk Tales more often because I love to go there.
When I got home my book I ordered arrived "Prairie Children and Their Quilts". I really love these small quilts. This book also has some interesting history on life as a pioneer.
