A while back, Ray suggested that the three of us go on a road trip today. That would be Maize (our GPS), Ray, and me. He suggested that we do our errands in Freeport and then head to the quilt shop that I heard about in Sycamore.
After breakfast on the porch, off we went. Errands done. On to Tammy Tadd Designs in Sycamore.
This store has more bright fabric than any shop I have ever been in! I think this is a shop you need to see to take it all in.
It is great! I was rather overwhelmed and decided to make a bag with these fabrics -
I just couldn't decide what quilt to make!!! I also picked up a few fat quarters.
The ladies there suggested that we go to Sweet Dream Desserts for lunch. Wow! A salad bar, a soup bar, a sandwich bar, a blue plate special, and desserts that looked incredible! Amazingly, we did not indulge after out salads! With pop, our lunch was under $11!
Next stop was Judy's Quilt N Sew in Hampshire. We were only a few miles away and decided to go for it. A nice shop in an old house. The people were very nice too.
I picked up a few pieces of fabric, a small pattern, and a kit. This fabric may become a patriotic quilt.
The ladies at Judy's sent us to a shop in Huntley but we decided it was time to head home.
On our way, we stopped in Shannon at the Farmer's Market. We bought tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, and mini peppers -
They were 8 for a buck so we took 8. It has been a colorful day!
Dinner was at Coach's in Lena. We are now home and ready to relax after our great day! Maize did a good job but got a little testy when we drove the backroads; it added minutes to our trip in retaliation!
