Are you getting sick of my Austin trip posts yet? Hope not, because I still have a pictures to share!
Our plan of attack for Saturday was "run" to Ginger's (local quilt/needlework shop) to pick up a few things and hit another shop in North Austin I haven't been to yet. Then come home and just veg/sew or something....well.....
Shop #10 - Ginger's Needlearts, Quilts & Framing, Austin (their link isn't currently working)
Picture is actually from my 2007 trip, but I like this shop because I ask Anjea specifically to go back to it for things and I ended up spending the most money here! This shop is mostly needle/cross stitch/embroidery work. Nice novelty fabrics, but their focus is on the hand work items. I did pick up 2 CUTE cross stitch designs to work on.
Shop #11 - The Quilt Shop, Austin (not part of the BBSH - but a great shop)
This is another "me" shop! Anjea took me to them when I visited in 2007 and we had to "swing" by being we were so close and ugh....I got more fabric. Great, excellent selection of batiks, brights, novelties and patterns. I definitely recommend this shop in Austin the most over all the others.
Shop #12 - Ready To Sew, Cedar Park (North Austin)
Nice shop, not overly friendly. Nice selection of notions and contemporary fabrics. I got a new ruler here and the one lady gave us about 4 more shops to visit---le sigh, on the next trip.
Ok, by the time we made it home--mmm, around 4 we were done. We kinda played around in the sewing room and pull fabrics together that Anjea has purchase, then by 7:30 we were out the door again.
We headed over to Torren's pad for monthly movie night. I have heard Anjea talk about this and I was not let down! He has turned his garage over into a theater---with stadium style seating (raised platforms with rows of couches) and a huge screen projector and a huge screen of course.
We watched The Princess Bride (bonus!). Even a 2 movie trailer and next month's movie trailer. Great pizza and conversation. It was a good evening. Again, arrived home around mid-nightish with an early wake up call to head to faire on Sunday....more pictures and details coming....
