So now on with the goodies......
First, some of the stores were giving away FQ's or little kits to make things. These aren't all of them. I still need to sort through all of my goodies. You also got a block pattern at each of the stores to make a Shop Hop Quilt. They gave you the pattern and if you wanted the kit it was available for purchase.And here are some of my finds! I tried to match up all my fabric so that I would have a collection. I am happy with what I got.
I really love the Black, White and Teal here! Its all FQ's so if anyone knows a good pattern for FQ's let me know because I am looking for one!This is my favorite find of all the stores! I am going to order more of this in yardage. I really do love it! We were looking for it at every store after the fact and couldn't find it anywhere! (I did pick up the pink dot at a later store).
So this is the next obsession fabric that I must have, and lots of it!!!!! Riley Blake Rainy Days and Mondays! That's basically it for the shop hop. To sum it up: Very fun, lots of fabric, lots of nice people, lots of stores, and very tiring. I am so glad they are only once a year. Next year my plan is to do it in 4 days not 2!
Another little goody I received in the mail was a $10 gift card and this thank you card from my sewing machine dealer! I thought it was very thoughtful and nice for them to send the card but to include the gift certificate too! They have a customer for life!
I also want to thank all my followers and readers. I did buy something on the hop for all of my online (invisible) friends so stay tuned as I get it ready. Just to give you a little hint: Think spring and Easter!
Finally, I want to leave you with this. I saw the sign on the way out of one of the shop hop stores and asked if I could take a picture of it! I just love it! It was so awesome that it was the only picture I remembered to take on the shop hop. I guess I was too mesmerized by all the fabric.
