Shop hopping on the road.

Last week I went home to MO and found some new to me quilt shops to go to.  The first shop was The Blue Top Quilt Shop in Lamar MO. This is a brand new shop, in fact they will be having their grand opening later this month. From the outside you would never guess that there was a quilt shop inside. There was a hose and some other hardware type stuff outside in front. Once in the door to the right it was like a variety store, little trinkets and things, you could even get computerized screen printing done on site. But to the left was this wonderful quilt shop. They have some great new fabrics, brand new!!!
Then stopped in Nevada, MO at the 9 Patch Quilt and Fabrics, Quilt shop, very friendly! A regular came in to show off a quilt she just got back from the quilter. It was beautiful!. A Dresden Plate and her fabric selection was amazing. So then the owner had to bring one of hers out to show, black and white with just a pop of red. Well of course they asked where my show n tell was and  stunned them when I pulled out the phone and looked  up  this blog. I bought the most amazing fabric with vintage treadle sewing machines on it.  

Also did a trip to Humboldt, KS and stopped in at Heavenly Kneads and Threads. You guessed it, massages by appointments. After a day of shopping I could have used a massage. I didn't get a pic of that shop, there was just way to much going on to remember, but I did get a shot of the new soda fountain shop two doors down. Great sandwiches and salads. Oh and don't forget the milk shake! Look at that original tin ceiling. Had a great day and could have only been perfect if my windshield wouldn't have been broken. That's another story.
