2nd Annual Heart of the Valley Shop Hop

We finished the hop today.  What fun.  We laughed so much.  Here's a picture of the 4 of us at each of the stores on the hop holding our Thimble Towne (quilt store in Visalia, CA).
We texted Jeremy, the owner of Thimble Towne, each of these these photos showing him we were using our bags.  We ended our hop at Thimble Towne in Visalia this afternoon.  When we got there Jeremy and Becky put a finish line out for us to run through.  Too funny.  Once inside we got to enjoy all the fun he had for the masses in the store.  Once he either sends the picture of us crossing the line or puts on his blog I'll post it here. 

Now for shopping, I really didn't think I bought that much but when you lay it all out, yikes!  It was hard finding room to put all of it.
Kit purchased at Bolts to Bindings and additional FQ from Quilters Quarters

Fat quarters or 1/4 yards purchased at most stores for my grandsons I Spy Quilt I want to make him.

Just some gorgeous whites and a deep beautiful green (and thread)

Some stencils (missing one) and I already had the big one :(

Just really liked this.

And this...

Here is the pile of goodies from all of the stores and their block patterns.
Just a great weekend.  Now I have to get to my bank and update my checking account.  Not really looking forward to that one.  

And Debbie, remember, be nice to me... I have a great shot of you in the car that you wouldn't want anyone else to see.  :)

Thanks for looking and all you people from the Central Valley in California, please make a point to do the Shop Hop next year - grab a buddy or two and go.

Thanks for looking.
