Friday is here once again, and that means it's time to get our whoop whoop on! Are you ready? Let's start!
This week, I've been in Perdido Key, which is near Pensacola, and I found a hidden gem here (thanks to Jan, the Colorful Fabriholic!) that I want to share with you. I set out on a F.A.R.T. (fabric acquisition road trip) and came across this...
...in front of a little strip center in Pensacola. My husband was skeptical, but we stopped and headed through this door...
...and this is what I saw - your typical local mom-and-pop pharmacy....
...but then I turned to my left and oh what a surprise!
Crafty stuff!!! And then entering in that side of the store, there was MORE!!!
... more fabric...
...LOTS more fabric...
...and quilt hanging from the ceiling!!!
The ladies who worked there said that they have over 10,000 bolts of fabric, and I believe them - everywhere I turned, there was more beautiful fabric!! You can read more about the shop here.
And even though I need more fabric like I need a hole in the head, I did pick up some basic staples - natural colored Essex linen, a taupe Quilter's Linen, and that great black and white cross-hatch fabric - that I had run out of at home. I could have spent hours in this store, but thankfully for my budget, my husband was with me and I kept my visit short. But I guarantee you, this will be a shop I return to every time we come here for vacation!
The staff was awesome - friendly, helpful, and they even offered a discount to guild members! Definitely a place you should check out if you are ever in the neighborhood.
And I've been doing some sewing this week, too - take a look at these oh-so-cute churn dash blocks I made Thursday! And I say cute, because they are only 3" finished - so tiny! I've still got more of these to make, but it's a start. This will be part of my Long Time Gone quilt - pattern by Jen Kingwell.
So - - - can I get a whoop whoop?
And now it's your turn!
What's got you whooping it up this week?
What's making you do a little happy dance?
Share - we want to dance right along with you -
And it's always more fun to dance with friends!
The party will stay open util Sunday midnight -
Hope to see you there!
