Friday road trip

There’s nothin’ like a road trip with quilty friends, is there?!

Karen, Helen and I decided that last Friday would be good for a road trip (mostly because I’d seen that Treehouse Textiles were having a sale that day!).

The shop was looking fabulous and as neither Karen nor Helen had visited before, was seen with new eyes by them.and after some gleeful shopping we headed next door for a cuppa I realised then that Little Woollie wasn’t that far away, and as none of us had been there that was definitely worthy of a short drive.

A wall of colour was the first thing we saw and it took our breath away – one of each please!There are so many beautiful yarns set out in this storeand crocheted pieces laid casually over tablesand chairsDon’t you just love the old Formica tables and vinyl chairs?!  Julie, the store owner, made us feel very welcome and we made some purchases there too.

By then it was time for (a very late) lunch so we headed down the street to a cafe – the name of which I forgot to get with all our chatter.  They did a great meal and were very friendly even when yours truly spilled water all over the floor….eeek!  The waiter ribbed me about it good naturedly, even telling Helen that she was welcome to come back but not to bring me!!So I guess you’d like to see what we bought, huh?  Helen……

Karen…..Me…… More socks to be knitted soon!!

Back at Karen’s we sat and had a cuppa, too tired to do any stitching having thoroughly enjoyed our outing.  We did take the time to admire this present for one of Karen’s grand daughters thoughIsn’t that sweet?

    I also love making quilt outings. At the end of october two of my quilt friends and I are going for 4 days to Friesland, a province in the North of the Netherlands. There are a lot of quilt shops there and on our way. Gorgeous purchase!🤗

  3. Oh, goodness, the wool shop – that could prove _very_ expensive!
