We went to check out the area for a possible move. While there we hoped to meet people, see contra dances, go to quilt stores (maybe I wanted that one more than Mr Not Afraid of Color) and see mountains.
I'll be doing several posts on the trip, of course, because I have so much to tell you!!!
Today let's focus on the important things.... FABRIC
while looking around Downtown Boulder, my friend Mary and I peeked into Fabricate. The store was about as large as my studio and had cute modern very expensive fabrics. Still I had to get some flamingos right? Right. And the daisy to go with because I want to do that pattern soon.
Another lovely quilt shop, maybe my fave of this trip was the Presser Foot in Longmont, CO.
but left with this
|and this black and white|
I gave her a slice of pie pin cushion, with whipped cream on top!
They cater to knitters embroiderers and quilters in the picturesque mountain town.
The fabrics were expensive so I got these three fiat quarters but ain't they cute?
The top snow grades from light to dark.
That's it for my fabric purchases. We were too tired to go to a contra dance by the evenings (altitude) but there are lots of fun pictures and adventures to share this week. On Wed there will be a dog post, on Thurs likes there are several surprises.
Went to CO wish you were here!
