Since I have been working/living in Louisiana I have wanted to find different shops along my travel route and stop in. This past week I had extra time on m return from Dallas and stopped at three shops.
I found PC Embroidery and Cottage Quilts in Shreveport. I was looking for an asian print to use as a background. I did find some pretty black asian prints and an apple print. I bought that because it has the apple from my home town of Cortland on it. Found a cute pattern to use some of the asian prints I am now over buying.
The next shop is The Fabric Shop in downtown Ruston. I got sucked into their half price table and found a great print that will be a backing to some quilt in the future. Found some cute cupcake , rooster and windvane fabric as well. Clover has a new tool out to make folded fabric roses. I bought one and will have to google for more directions. The directions included are pretty good but I think I need to see a demo at least once.
Finally I went to Hannah's Quilts in Choudrant, LA. It was pretty easy to get there with my Garmin but a little nerve wracking since it was pouring rain and there was standing water in surprising places. I was glad when I got back to the main roads. I bought a few asian prints while I was there. Shocking isn't it? She had some kits that were marked down. Bloomers by Anima's quilting. I looked but didn't buy, until Saturday that is. I drove back to Hannah's and bought both kits. One is for Mom. I also picked up two more blenders for a cheetah print blooming ninepatch I plan to make. Here is a pic of the backroad to Hannah's.
I will have to total up my purchases and put my totals in here later. But I did buy. Oh boy did I buy. Not like Judy though!
