On Wednesday night we stopped in Arlington, Texas to spend the night. I told you about that on an earlier post, how we innocently stopped for dinner in a Restaurant/Brewery and I'd never seen so many different kinds of beer. For a person who might have one glass of wine a year that was a real eye opener!
But ya'll the next morning before we left town we made a quick stop at The Lone Star Quilt Shop. Well, I thought it was quick but I'm not sure what Jerry thought since he was waiting in the truck for me. The Lone Star is in an old house in a residential neighborhood and they had more stuff than I could take in. They had stuff in every room of that house, including the bathroom! In fact, I bought a couple of patterns out of the bathroom. :) If you like reproduction fabrics and/or primitives you would love this shop. They had some nice wools, lots of wovens, kits galore and samples hanging everywhere. They have some great Blocks of the Month (which you can find on the website if you're interested) and were just the friendliest people to work with. I suppose they would tend to be friendly though since I was standing there with money in my hand. :) In my defense I'm doing my best to help with my very own stimulus plan - our economy will be grateful I'm sure.
The rest of the trip to Abilene was uneventful and pretty quick. We have been participating in a Volunteers in Missions training at McMurry University and have met the nicest people. Not only am I going to have to live to be a hundred to do all the quilts I want, I'm going to have to be a hundred to volunteer in all the places I want to go! After I get home I'll tell you about this training on my other blog (www.aservantsjourney.blogspot.com) where I'm sort of journaling our mission trip experiences.
When I get home I'll post pictures of everything I bought - you're gonna' love it all!
