A Good Day at the Quilt Shop..



We've all been awaiting the opening of our local quilt shop Peggy's Heirlooms of Tomorrow at her new location in Market Square, Ocala. Since I was out and about early (not so common for me.. a natural night person), I stopped at the store and joined a line of more than 25 people waiting for the doors to open. I was number four in line, and the first 20 customers received a gift bag. Here's mine... chock full of goodies like a pattern, specialty buttons, thread nets, thread spools, laces, fabric, a quilty pin, and even a $10 gift card for the pizza place just down from Peggy's. What a treat the new shop is, and the goody bag, too!

While I'm photographing the gift bag and its contents, I'll also show you another of the fabric-covered rope baskets, at top. This one was made in an online class at Joggles called "Treasure Nests" by Tammy Gilley. It's a softer, thicker cord than clothes line, and it's hand stitched and embellished.

Lucky you! looks like some fun gifts. I saw that basket and thought it was a pile of fabric bracelets. Cute! I used to make this sort of thing, I should try it again with my fresh outlook.
