Yesterday Elizabeth and I decided to hit the road for some delicious lunch at Chipotle and then we headed over to Thimblecreek. It was mobbed as usual... but we still managed to get some good photos.. Here's Nancy... you probably know her already from over at Anne's place.... but here she is holding up a wonderful quilt made from a Sandy Klop pattern.

Here's her version of Oh My Stars, also American Jane. It was amazing. Nancy does some incredible work.

From around the shop we see some quilty friends, here's Tracy from Plum Cute!

Look at all the Cosmo Thread!!! Holy Cow.
Here's Joe's RYOKAN pattern.

Oh look, its Barbara from Quilt Soup!!! Have you seen her wonderful new fabric?

Of course no trip is complete without some Anne! This is a class!!

Of course there's always some of our favorite Fig!

Of course I'm heartbroken no picture of our wonderful friend Chickie. I was so happy to see her after so long. Elizabeth and I don't get out like we used to. Which this year, we must remedy.
So that was our fun day out. Hope you peeps have a great weekend. xo

It was a great outing! Nothing like a burrito bowl and some polka dots to perk a girl up!

I love the OH MY STARS quilt. The colors are so happy.
Love the thread and that japanese little purse. Adorable!! I bought those things to make a bag two years ago and never did make it.
Glad you and Elizabeth had a good day.

I visited this store while at my MIL for the holidays. I found lots of great fabrics, including 2 bots of Flea Market Fancy! Knowing I can make a detour here will enhance any future trip to the MIL's.
