Day #4 found Beth, my 2 boys and I taking a little road trip north, to the mountains! Our first stop of the morning was at Stitch n' Snip in Garden Valley, ID, an approximate hour and a half drive. This was a small shop packed full of goodness!
Another hour and 45 minute drive to McCall, ID and we visited Granny's Attic and Huckleberry Patches. At Huckleberry Patches, I found this beautiful Yuletide Magic panel that I absolutely love - I cannot wait to turn into something wonderful (hopefully). I decided I'm a sucker for Christmas fabric, I really could have purchased a fat quarter bundle (or more) of the coordinating fabrics in this line. I haven't noticed this fabric at any of my local quilt shops, but I haven't actually looked, I just happened upon it while in McCall. I'm either going to have to search down here or find an excuse to go visit this shop again.
Thanks for joining me on our Shop Hop journey. Next year I'm thinking we'll get crazy with it, maybe have more interested members from our quilt group go with us, do all shops in a weekend and stay in a motel somewhere overnight, dress up - crazy hats, huge sunglasses, sequins...I'm not sure. I just think it would be fun to get as crazy as we want with a large group of people. Though, don't get me wrong, I really did love the quality time with Sara and Beth on day 1 (and Beth on day #2 and #4) - we've been friends awhile, but it has been a long time since we've spent so much time together and it was fabulous!
