2012 Shop Hop

I decided this year that i Really didn't need to do shop hop.    My sewing room runneth over!!  That being said, Thursday afternoon I headed for Sweet Home.  After all....work is half way between my house and Bad Melisa's.  Just a hop, skip and a jump down to Conyers.  I even said to Melisa that I was not doing shop hop this year but had to come see her.  I managed to purchase a few things-a lovely bundle of  FQ that looks like Spring minus the pollen.  I also could not resist the Peanuts fabric for little girl pillowcases.  I patted myself on the back and headed home.  A new piece of bling for Moda Man.

I was good on Friday...I promise you that!!!!

Sarah no blog emailed about going "south" on Saturday.  I could NOT let her drive all that way by herself after all.  So yesterday morning we headed off to Scarlet Thread  I made her buy a new toy there.  It seems though that Carol Yates already has one.  At any rate now 3 of us have this excellent gotta have toy!  I also bought another toy that makes prarie points.  I am planning on making fabric rick rack for border design  (I will have to applique it on...hee hee)
Back on the interstate, a stop at Quilts n' fixins in Jonesboro.  There animal fabrics are the best.  pig fabric!  We stopped for lunch and fortunately did not get food poisoning.  I forgot to check the score on the way in-the servers left a little to be desired.
We did a drive through at Toco Hills Sbx to see if Gretch was there.  She was not but we did stop for a little bit at Intown

All that hopping made me very tired and I needed a nap.  I was pretty much done for the rest of the day.
