A Little Retail Therapy . . .

and, I really do mean little!


Every place we go I check to see if there is a quilt shop in town.

Unfortunately I usually overlook and pass by shops that say “fabric centers” as I immediately picture satins, polyester and corduroy.  Well this weekend we were in Weyburn, Saskatchewan and I did pop into a “Fabric Center” and they actually did have a Quilter’s Corner (lesson learned here!).


I really didn’t have a list of any kind with me, but grabbed up three fat quarters that caught my eye and also some tiny buttons – I have a thing for tiny buttons right now and you’ll see more in May.  There was a lovely selection of batiks and quite a large selection of quilter’s cottons as well – I will be adding this site to my “must stop and look around again” list.

Did you know that this Saturday, March 20th is National Quilt Day?  I was just over at the Moda  website and they have an awesome word search for all of us quilters to try our hand at . . . pop over and get a copy for yourself or for your group (right click and print picture).

Have fun!

What a small world it is....I recently bought some of the same green fabric printed with hearts, it was in a pic on my blog last week.
