Shop Hop Day #4

Alright it’s our last day … we had a lot of fun today, and I have to say that the last shop was my favorite today!


Bellevue, Washington

A dessert table…which i loved.  they even had super cute handmade buttons!


Their block was pretty cute too


Duvall, Washington

Cute little town, but I wasn’t so impressed with the shop.  Except for the creaky old floorboards…which i loved!


Woodinville, Washington

Love the patriotic applique quilt!

Bothell, Washington

My favorite of the day…looks like an old barn filled with beautiful fabric!  Ahhhhh


Isn’t that sweet?!  White picket fence and quilts hanging from the rafters!!  I LOVE this place!

Well, that concludes this years shop hop…at least for us lol.  We had so much fun and saw so many beautiful and inspiring things.  Thank you all for reading and commenting on our adventure in the beautiful Pacific Northwest!


Shop Hop Day #3

I was way too tired to blog when we got home on day #3 and #4 so I’m doing it all now lol.  Our first stop was in Chehalis, Washington.  We loved this shop!!


Grandma, Kristina and Mom…aren’t they cutest?!


Couldn’t resist this little shop right across the street.  Our little side track of the day…but oh such wonderful goodies they had in there!!


Our next shop in Centralia, Washington.  They wouldn’t allow us to take pictures in there.  That’s okay though since we weren’t all that impressed anyway.

Oakville, Washington…This had to be the most charming shop we’ve been to so far.  Fabric in the attic!!  How cool is that?!  Used to be a soda shop or something since they still have the bar stools at the counter, and the rack above it.  Definitely worth the drive!


Mom buying a whole bunch of cute fabric!


Our own personal door man…he even helped Grandma out of the car.  So cute!


The raffle quilt lady (to help the local library) and her cute little hat!


Look at that face!!!  I had just asked her if I could borrow some money.  I think that’s a NO lol!




I think this is the only picture we got of all of us on our 4 generation shop hop!

Tumwater, Washington

This was a cute little shop…I loved all the aprons they had made up!

Olympia, Washington

We got a stamp and a block here, but this is mostly where they hold classes and stuff.  They did have some cute samples made up and an adorable stamping lady!

Olympia, Washington

This is Bayside Quilting 2.  This store was HUGE!  So many wonderful things to look at and lots of pretty samples!


Grandma spinning the wheel…her ticket number was called and she won a prize!!!


Um…I was really wondering if I could just buy this AWESOME cupboard hehe


Oh my gosh…the restroom had an old red claw foot tub and an Elvis quilt LOL

Well that was it for day 3

We had fun today seeing so many beautiful things!

Here’s a picture of my girl just cuz she’s cute lol

Shop Hop day #2!

We hopped to 4 shops today :) Pretty good for not leaving the house until the afternoon! (and I made an oops and forgot the map and we had to go back for em!)

First stop in Tacoma, Washington. The outside of the building is horrible. But once inside...OH MY...they had more fabric crammed in that little store then i've ever seen in one quilt shop! There was barely enough room to walk around lol.

They didn't have many samples made up, but aren't the ruffles the cutest??!!

These are 2 of the fabrics I found there...and not at any of the other shops we've been to so far. These are sooooooooooooooo beautiful. although the pics really suck. Imported from Japan. I really have to go back for more die for fabric!
