Friday morning was the beginning of laundry, cleaning out the car, putting stuff away and running some errands.
We ran into Wyandotte to pay a bill, and of course I had an opportunity to obtain a row. :D
Sew What in Wyandotte, Michigan is a cute little shop which has a good selection of fabrics.
We got home played with the kids, The Finn has become much more talkative since we were gone. We discovered that we had the car for another two days. What to do? Check out the Row by Rows for Indiana, Michigan, and Ohio to see who had some rows that I would want which could be acquired during a day trip. The decision was Ohio was the place to go. So Saturday off we went.
First stop was Grannie Fannie's Quilt Barn which the address says that it is in Millersburg, Ohio,but is actually in Berlin.
Love the shop and they actually have quilts which were hand quilted too. Gives you a whole new perspective on how much a quilt should cost.
Stop 2 was Lone Star Quilt Shop in Mt. Hope, Ohio.
Stop 3 was Somewhere Sewing in Millersburg, OH. This was another row that I had to have.
The final shop was Paw Patch Quilt Shop in Mt. Vernon, Ohio.
They had two rows one horizontal, and one vertical. I loved their vertical row. So I purchased it, and a 15 degree triangle ruler by Creative Grids. I wanted a ruler to do a Dresden quilt and this one is nice and big, and is the first I have seen for a while.
These are my rows so far, and my other acquisitions while on vacation.
Dh and I drive old vehicles, so when we go on a vacation or a long weekend we rent a car. We had a Toyota Corolla, and while Dh is a strictly American car buyer when we compared vehicles that we could have at the rental counter the Corolla had the most room, which we needed because the little boys are not light packers! I will say that it was definitely worth the money because we put on over 8,000 miles in the three weeks we had the car, and it drove wonderful, we averaged around 40 miles per gallon. In Portland an engine light came on, all we had to do was take it back to the rental agency and we got a different car! Thoroughly worth the cost.
Back to the grind. Ugh!
One last vacation memory. The pink elephant in Wisconsin. The boys had to have a picture.
