Home from wandering Minnesota. And yes, we wandered--we were lost! When we were ready to leave Minneapolis, I thought it would be fun to check out a few close quilt shops. I used "Google maps" to write down the directions. I THOUGHT the directions sounded strange when I wrote them down, but they were even WORSE to try and follow. After going around in a five block circle for the 4TH time, I called the shop. We were only a few blocks from them, but not anywhere near the directions. And we stopped at one of "those" quilt shops. The kind that made us wonder if we had applied deodorant and showered lately. Nope, no purchases! On to the next set of directions. Same bad directions. Finally I made an executive decision (I was driving at the time) and said--
"well, to get back to South Dakota we will have to go south, so we'll head south!" After a VERY scenic drive, we came across a sign pointing us to the right place. And I'm so glad we did because we went to Eagle Creek Quilt Shop in Shakopee MN. Check out the link--it was so much more than the pictures shown online. And they were VERY friendly. Uh, I will have some additions to my stash report! But it's all good, I was very happy with what I bought.
Sorry there aren't any pictures, it was rainy and drizzly yesterday. Today we rested and spent most of the time in our PJs.
