Atlanta Shop Hop Day 1 Contintued

More photos from the shops, Janice and I visited on Thursday. My camera and computer were "difficult" on my last post. It could not have been "operator error."

Little Quilts Shop Hop Quilt
Tiny Stitches shop hop quilt was a quilted book. Very cute!

Our last shop on Thursday was Red Hen Fabrics in Marietta, Georgia.
On the tour of homes, Red Hen was the Gingerbread House.

It was a pleasure discovering that Sue who was a participant at the Silver Thimble Ellijay Retreat works at Red Hen. Here she is with the shop owner's Mom. It was fun munching on gumdrops and jelly beans while these ladies stamped our Passports.

Thelma from Cupcakes 'n Daisies sent wishes for a wonderful day, one ending with a cupcake. I didn't find a "real" cupcake, but this display of cupcake fabric and pincushions put a smile on my face.
patterns were available for this unique Halloween creation.
patterns from Silver Thimble Quilt Company. The bottom quilt, Road to Romance, is one that I pieced for Pat. It's the first quilt I pieced for a pattern cover.
