I had to take a few afternoon excursions with the kids this vacation. They wouldn't nap unless they were completely exhausted and cranky so taking a car ride usually got the job done. DH was usually happy to oblige, as he got some down time in the car with them too.
On one of these trips, I visited Tumbleweed Quilt Shop in Barnstable and met its wonderful manager named Mary. Check out her blog here. All I can say is wow! If you get a chance to visit Cape Cod this is the shop to go to. 7,500 bolts of designer glory. 'nuff said.
I think these are Fassetts...and *all* of your favorite designers. (there are 3 more rows/stands of fabric behind this!)
Thirties fabrics... Here is the first half. More reds, oranges and yellows are around the corner.
Wool and novelties...
Batiks and Embroidery threads...(beyond is a section dedicated to polka dots!)
Samples of quilts in all varieties...
Lots of precuts...enough for me to hide behind them...(My five year old took this picture! She had to have a picture of the bird mobiles.)
One happy momma... who found the rest of the Katie Jump Rope she wanted, the one that was stalking her here in this post.
And two sleepy children who slept sweetly... oh so sweetly!
