Here are the goodies I received on the Shop Hop. At each store I was given a strip of fabric - red, green yellow, and purples. At the last shop I received a tote bag pattern, batting and backing, and this adorable Needlework Diva panel. I can't wait to sew my new tote bag. Thanks to the shop owners for this treat - it certainly made my 24th anniversary memorable! And of course because I have been quilting so long, I was certain to met some Shop Hopping friends along the way and enjoyed some quick visits at almost every store. I'm so glad there was a good turnout - maybe the rainy, cold weather was helpful for attendance. You can see my finished project from the Spring Shop Hop 2007 by clicking here.
Of course I had to pick up a little something at each stop and here is a photo of some of my new supplies. I got two kits that were on sale - one is a baby quilt that I will make for a friend, and all the other stuff I bought were either fantastic prices (couldn't resist) or "necessary" to finish ongoing projects.
I only had one Shop Hop mishap...I dropped my Shop Hop passport into the freshly baked cherry pie we bought at the mennonite bakery! Oh my - I licked it off and tried to make sure it didn't stick onto any fabric! Thanks to Leslie for accepting my gooey cherry covered passport!
