In an effort to help the economy and advance small business, Fran, Bonnie & I took a road trip yesterday to a couple of local quilt shops. First we went to Smile Spinners in Marysville, PA, and managed to find a few goodies that we just couldn't live without (you know how that is!!). I needed some red fabric for the border of my twisted star, which is the first of three parts for a guild class. I also got some beige for the applique border, which is part two. Then after a great lunch at Isaacs (yummy tomato soup), we stopped at The Fabric Center in Carlisle, PA. Again, you know the drill - we had to pick up a few goodies for our stashes!!! The President would be proud of us!!!
