FUN DAY!!!!

I had a fun day today with Nicole & Karen - and I hope that Karen & Nicole had a fun day as well! :-)
Nicole was here around 8:45, and we went to Sumter where we met Karen at the first yarn store/quilt shop. They didn't have very much in the quilt shop, but the yarn shop was really nice & they even carry DMC floss - woohoo! ;-) Somewhere closer than 75 miles with DMC, that's exciting!! ;-)

Then we went to the 2nd quilt shop where we managed to spend about 3 hours (gasp) with Barb, the owner. She's very friendly & funny too. ;-) I didn't buy A LOT, but I got some great things - will share some pics as I make some things with the fabrics. I had my camera & Nicole snapped a few pics for me while I was chatting with Barb - beautiful fabrics & LOVELY quilts - don't you agree?










We came back here & went to lunch at one of the most popular bbq resturants in SC, and it was SO good. We were all starving by that time - trust me! This place has really good bbq (for those not in the south, that's pulled pork!). Then we came back to my house to play with our stash, both quilting & stitching - so all in all, a wonderful day spent with wonderful friends!

Now all I want to do is sew/stitch or stitch/sew - so guess what my plans are for tomorrow.... ;-) I plan to stitch for awhile tonight though...


Thanks for stopping by & HAPPY STITCHING!!

Where is that bbq? I live in SC and could go eat there. Also where is the quilt shop that you took pics from. She has a quilt on the wall that I also made and they look similar but different (mine is borderless at yet as I am still applique-ing).
