Well, my time here at my sister's house is nearing a close. This afternoon she didn't have any classes to teach and stayed home keeping Granny company. [Granny is doing very well, by the way, and we are thankful for two good doctors' appointments this week with one more to go tomorrow.]
So a free afternoon stretched before me...what to do...what to do?
My sister suggested two local antique stores I might like to peruse. My thought was to check out a new quilt store, Beginnings Quilt Shop, which my blogging friend, Becka, recommended on a recent blog post.
Like I said, it was dark, stormy, and very foggy headed north toward the mountains...and I began to wonder why in the world I picked to travel to North Carolina today! Yes...the quilt shop is located not in South Carolina but North Carolina! That's not far though...only 45 minutes away to cross over into North Carolina and arrive at the Flat Rock/Hendersonville area. And, oh boy, it was worth the drive!
Here's the store front of Beginnings Quilt Shop. You can't even tell it's raining in this photo! I managed to snap this shot juggling my umbrella to keep me and the camera dry:And here's the fabric display inside the door that caught my eye--Kaffe Fassett's newest line of 6-inch design rolls: These rolls were beautiful and came in colors such as Ocean, Fire, and Earth. I loved them all!
Here's another view of the shop...there were so many bolts of brightly colorful fabrics and very inspiring wall samples: I was really interested in this wall hanging pattern because I love stars and flying geese in quilts: The ladies who worked in the store were so very nice. Thank you to Lynn and Debbie for making me feel at home.
