Out in the Prairie

So we travel to the middle of the Prairie, where there is nothing.......... I mean NOTHING --- and what do we find? Two, not one, but TWO quilt shops just a few hundred feet from one another!! Is that incredible or what??

After we visited a Needle in a Haystack we drove just down the road til we got to this sign

Yep, I am Itchin to Stitch :-)

And what a cute shop it was too.

Don't you love a shop with personality??

And YES I had to buy a little something there too ;-)

I even found a Charm Pack of the elusive Glace that I had searched for last year.

But that's not all. On our return trip, we found one more place that I had been wanting to check out. So if you aren't tired of my travels, I will take you to yet another place next time.

Before you go, can I ask you to help a friend of mine?? John'aLee from The Scrappy Appleyard has just experienced a loss in her family. Please read her post if you can help by making a block for the grieving family.

What a lovely shop to come across in the middle of nowhere and to find 2.
We have just returned from a 5 week road trip in our van this week out west Australia and found a quilt shop we went looking for down a dirt road in the bush among the Gum trees.It was a lovely unexpected little treasure. I also posted on it.
I will send a block.

I learned to wash clothes with one of those wringer washers. I had long hair at the time and got it caught in the wringer twice.
