Yes, that's us. Lori is on the left and I'm on the right. We are posing in our crowns that Material Girls gave out to celebrate Mother's Day, or Queen for a Day as we called it. Each store has a theme for an "event". Whenever Lori and I get together we have an awesome (I hardly ever use that word, so for emphasis you know I mean it) time together. Today was no exception. We went first to Material Girls, then Quilts in Sandy and then Pine Needles in Gardner Village. Lori and I have extremely tight schedules so we have to plan time together.
Nadine was there to meet us when we went to Material Girls. I won a prize (yay). We got there early but by the time we left that store was very busy. (Don't tell but Lori helped me cut my own fabric.)
I took some random shop pictures. I love the eye candy. All the stores had so many wonderful quilts and inspirational displays. It was just so fantastic.
Flower Sugar II is quickly being sold at Material Girls. You can see Pam's pattern displayed right with the fabric.
Here is Lori's Paper Doll Quilt in progress on the back wall. Lori teaches at Material Girls and it is sorta her 2nd home. I love the high ceilings at Material Girls. There is so much to look at.
Lori's niece was there selling jewelry and cute decorated flip flops.
If you check out the photo of me and Lori you can see we are modeling our necklaces. It is vintage cute.Lori gave me this darling gift. She is just so incredibly talented and genius really. I love love love this pincushion. I had it in my sewing room and my daughter said "that is the cutest pincushion I've ever seen". And she's right. It is going to sit right next to me at my machine. Thanks Lori.
My Internet connection has been terrible lately. So I'll try to post again tomorrow. I want to show you the other shops we visited and maybe I'll get to Broadbent's and Quilting Cottage this week to show you those shops, too.
