Fall Frenzy Shop Hall

My daughter and I took a bus trip yesterday for our first Fall Shop Hop Frenzy!  It was great fun and we got great stuff.   We traveled from Delaware to PA and back visiting 9 of the 10 stores on our 'passports'.   In addition to getting to visit some great shops and getting sensory overloading, we enjoyed the day with a great group of ladies......hmmmm, a new guild membership maybe in my future.  

Since I am just a beginner, I was the apprentice to their vast knowledge, terms and techniques.   Of course, there was SEX - Stash Enhancement eXperience going on.

Some fat quarters from the "civil war" fabric section -except for the snowman one on the bottom!

I love this Moda collection - complete and ready for a quilt!
And then there is my daughter. She is the self-described ...."Whiskey swilling, sailor talking, motor-cycle riding, spinning and knitting librarian"...... off early this morning, while the thermometer still registered 38 degrees outside.......she is returning to Philly to be at work by 8:45 this morning. Brrrrrrrrrrrr......she is going to be chilled to the bone after that 40 minute ride on the interstate! Kids!
Bundling up

My little alien

Her BMW model of choice
Believe it or not, she managed to pack all her stash in her trunk bag and tank bags.  Drat, none left here for me to play with.

Off she goes

Be safe my little one.....hope hubby has hot coffee for your arrival! and don't forget to text your MOM when you arrive!

Dang it - I hate it when the kids do remember to pick up their toys! Can't wait to see what you do with your new stuff!

Robin, It seems we keep participating in the same quilt events but at different times. First I missed you at Oaks and then I missed you on the Shop Hop. You got some great stash and left plenty for me!
