Strawberry Patch Monday

Good morning! What did you do yesterday, watch the Super Bowl? Sew? Shop? I had a good sewing day myself, with a nice fat Law and Order Marathon going how could I resist. But today it's time to talk a little about the trip.

We left Saturday and drove straight to Strawberry Patches. It's just about 4 hours to get there, but it's totally worth every minute! What a darling shop. They're super friendly, I know that's a key ingredient in a great shop.

The displays are all wonderful. And not just the super cute PKM displays, all the displays are wonderful.

There's tons of fabric! And wonderful 'stuff'. You know, ribbons, notions, patterns, you name it.

It's a happy place. I had a great time. Suzanne had a great surprise for me, a box of my very own Cherry Head candy that I'd seen on her blog (scroll for it, great post), and the cute scrapbooking supplies she used to make the tag on the PKM pillow tutorial.

The three of us had fun, Frankie picked up some cute ribbon and some FOE (fold over elastic) They have a great selection.

This is my haul. I think it will go great with some PKM. Now tell me what you're up to! xo

Hi Pam! I love that Michael Miller kitchen fabric. But who makes the cute tea cup fabric in your stash? Your pillow is adorable...I recently purchased some of that sweet pink floral fabric on the pillow! I love it!

I watched the game. Then I wept and went to bed.

My quilting buddies and I had a Sew=per Bowl party. We sewed and ate and sewed and laughed. Good time overall.

What a nice bundle to bring home from your trip. Great for jump starting some serious sewing.

So sorry I missed you Pam. I had forgotten I had my granddaughters basketball game and by the time we got there you had come and gone.
Maybe next time.
I don't watch the game, but it is a big day for my family. I just cooked and cooked. Then I got to sit in the 75 degree sun, watch the grands and quilt.

I think it is so incredibly funny that I have every single one of your "haul" fabrics. The little strawberries that look crochet are so so cute. It is all darling stuff. We are sew alike.

I would really like to visit that shop one day. Cute PKM display and I 'heart' the little red sewing machine.

I watched the Super Bowl just for the commercials and that wasn't even very impressive. Ok, maybe there was one. ;)

Have a great week!

I had to take a break from my PKM Dresden project to start a quilt for my oldest son. R2D2 quilt - it's insanely cute. Can't wait to post the finished quilt.
