We decided yesterday to check out the shops in Marietta. So bright and early this morning Marti, Marie, Cindi and I headed off to the other side of town. We went to Little Quilts and Tiny Stitches first. I really don't understand why quilt shops just don't seem to last in Gwinnett County. We did some looking and some buying-fondled a bit of fabric and then it was time to eat lunch. I must admit, one of the first things discussed this morning was where we would lite for lunch. All of us have a fondness for the Marietta Diner. Only downside is the food is so good, one has no room for one of the decadent deserts-oh those cakes and pies!!!! i swear you gain weight just walking by the cases!
After lunch we checked out Red Hen. Not my favorite shop but I did manage to get a piece of fabric for the back of a Just for You quilt.
We ran into several Thimbles during the day-more Gwinettians on a mission!
Before heading back to our side of town, we made a quick detour to Kennesaw-famous for the Civil War battle and Cottontail Quilts. This is a lovely shop. By the time we hit I75 we were in rush hour traffic. But then again-rush hour in the ATL lasts most of the day.
I must ready myself for more fun-tomorrow is Thimbles!!!! Life is good
