needed to send a pattern order to Quilter's Coop in Temecula, Ca., so I decided yesterday to just hand deliver it
omg it was hot,hot,hot!!!  not the best day to choose to go... 105 plus.... i felt like i was melting!
luckily for me i can browse in a quilt shop for hours! wonderfully fun shop, so much to look at, be inspired by and purchase... i did all three happily :)
finally had to go out the door... uuuggg! ran across the street as fast as i could to the recently opened shop The Wool Lady, full of wool, of course and floss, yarn, hooking, stitching.... all of which i love... and she had air-conditioning so i stayed, browsed and shopped!
next was Rooster Creek always a good place to find primitive little stuff that i just have to have!
then off on alittle drive down the road to Temecula Quilt Co. .... Cheryl really has a talent for display, if you've not been need to go give the shop a look....added to fabric purchases!
despite the heat, i enjoyed and was inspired immensely by the shops i visited
tea-dying my new fabrics right now as i type away...
ready to sew!!!

I'm going to all those shops mentioned tomorrow as well as Country Loft and Fat Quarters, it will be a busy day of driving but well worth it. You got some nice goodies it sounds like.

Fun! Do you always tea dye your fabric after you buy it?

I love Temecula. My grandparents used to own property in Wildomar....right on the Freeway and we always went to visit there. I still have lots of family around that area.
Thanks for the heads up on the shoppes...I will make sure to stop in on my way to the San Diego show next month.

I just found you via A Simple Life blog. I think all three of the quilt shops mentioned in your blog and comments; Temecula Quilt Co., Quilter's Coop and The Country Loft are my 3 top quilt shops.
I will have to check out The Wool Lady and Rooster Creek when I visit my son at SDSU. Thanks for the great blog and I have subscribed to the RSS feed.
