Batiks, Etc.

Yes, I am so excited about our house and really anxious to get in it, but, I have to wait! Don't worry, I will post inside pictures. But for now, more on the quilting side:

This past Saturday (a beautiful, sunny, late October day) I went along with my mom and here friend Janet to Wytheville, Va, to visit Batiks, Etcetera and Sew What Fabrics. Mom had been before (and has the frequent buyer punch card to prove it!) but for Janet and myself it was a magical entry into a jewel box full of beauty!
Love this ladder display in the hall!

Batiks to left of me and batiks to the right, batiks upstairs in the Sale! room. Fat Quarters, Layer Cakes, Charm Squares, books, tool, gadgets, everywhere I turned there was a new delight! I bought charm square packs, FQs and 2 books along with batik yardage for a quilt I am planning for my living room wall. I will post on the books later. Mom got 108" wide batik baking for a friend along with additional fabric for her stash (my mom loves batiks, really loves them!). Janet bought fabric and patterns. We had so much fun with the lovely ladies working there. The customer service was fantastic and judging from the raucous laughter coming from the class room, it would be a fun place to take a class! Make a trip to Wytheville or buy on line, this is a great shop with a fabulous collection of batiks.
