As you know, my gal pal, came to visit me this past weekend! Of course as soon as she got here I caught "the cold" that had been going around my house! I wasn't going to let that ruin my special weekend, so I drowned myself in cold medicine every night! However, I did loose my voice and I did have to spend the weekend wispering to her! Doesn't matter, we had a great time anyway!
Day 1 of our Great Adventure began with a trip to Olde Town Temecula. This area is filled with charming little shops. It is also home one of my favorite quilt stores. I knew that RED lived in the area and I invited her to meet up with us.
We met RED (AKA Sharon) outside The Quilter's Coop ( RED knows this store very well because she has nicknamed it the "Coop"!) Anyway, it was like meeting a long lost friend because I felt like I already knew her!
Before doing our shopping, we headed to Sweet Lump's BBQ for some good old fashioned BBQ and quilters' fellowship! What a great time we had just talking about blogging, quilting, and life in general! We even took a moment to take this cute photo!
After lunch we had to say "goodbye" to RED even though we could have talked (or in my case, whispered) to her for hours! Lets see, how could we get over our sorrow......I know shopping!
At "the Coop" we were overwhelmed by all of cute quilt samples, patterns, and fabulous fabric! However, here is a photo of their version of the Moda U Piece N Plenty BOM. (You know the one that I am WAY behind on!)
(Mar, I thought that you might enjoy seeing this version of the quilt since you are also working on it).
Boy did we shop! Is it bad if you blow your budget on the 1st day at the 1st store that you go to?
I thought that I would add this cute photo of the flag quilt hanging outside of the "Coop." ( If you want a glimpse of the inside of the store, check out my gal pal's photos.)
Next we headed to Rooster Creek!
You know that you are in trouble when there is a BIG HUGE sale sign outside the store! And boy were we in trouble!
Stay tuned for more on our adventure and our LOOT! However I am going to post one last picture. This ones for you RED ! You are AWESOME and I am so glad that we met!Until Next Time......Happy Quilting!
