CT Shop Hop and Fantastic Giveaways!

It is day three of the CT Shop Hop, but I have only been able to get out two of the days.  On Saturday we traveled to eight shops and today I went to two more.  These two were in my general area, so I was able to get to both of them.  The shops are closing at 6:00 p.m. instead of 5:00 p.m.; but for such a large event it would be so much better for us shoppers if they stayed open until 8:00 p.m. OR gave us two full weeks to travel to 18 different shops all over the state of CT!  The shop owners do need to think that a shop hop brings in a tremendous amount of traffic and money for them, so they need to be more flexible for us!  There are definitely shops that I love and some that I could take or leave.  Click on the picture below to enlarge it and get a better view of the Halloween fabric I bought today.  It was 25% off, but I got charged for an extra yard--I will let you know how this turns out!  Tomorrow I am going to try to get in three shops after work--might be a challenge to get to all three by 6:00 p.m.

On another note, I have added two new buttons on my side bar; each for fantastic giveaways!  I can't wait to visit Among the Gum Trees tomorrow to learn more about it!  I printed out the first pattern for "Sweet Nostalgia" today and will get that going this weekend I hope!  I also checked the buttons I have and fixed any problems with them!  Until tomorrow--quiltingly yours,



  1. So far, I have only made it to 2 shops. Hoping to do more today.
