Isolated Big Shop and My Jane I-6
Encouraging words of the day:
with a very small sign by the side of the road. I happened to see it as we drove past the turn-off. We drove down a little country lane, thinking the whole time that this was the wrong place. We already knew how difficult it was to find. How did the place do business? Then when we drove up to the only building at the end of the land, it looked like a private residence. No “quilt shop” sign. But, since we’d come all this way, we figured we’d go up to the building, knock, and ask whoever answered the door, if the knew the directions to a near-by quilt shop. Imagine our surprise when the door was answered and we found a quilt shop with 5 rooms full of beautiful bolts of fabric, fat quarters, patterns, beautiful sample quilts and purses, notions, everything you can imagine. The owner was perfectly lovely and made us feel at home. No other custormers were around nor did any arrive while we were there so we were still left wondering how she does business. Here’s a picture of “S.E.A. Quilt Shoppe” in Gulf Shores, Alabama.
And yes, we made several purchases.
I’m still going slowly so have only found 2 giveaways to blog about:
Hanging On By A Thread is having a giveaway. You could win MyMemories software or darling cross stitched snowman. - ends November 24.
Just One More Stitch is having a sponsored giveaway. You could win a White Christmas fat quarter bundle from Fort Worth Fabric Studio. - ends Nov 5.
That is all.
