I am in Hamilton, Ontario this week. All work and no play, except for a little running in between meetings and other work obligations.
So I was out for a run late afternoon yesterday when I ran past this delighful little store called "Needlework". Well, you know I just had to go in. It's a small but inviting store and workshop with a nicely curated fabric selection. I was tempted to skip the rest of my run, especially since it was -15C (that's 5F, folks), but the store was opened until 8:00, so I had plenty of time to finish my run and come back before closing. No excuse!
Come back I did, and did what any quilter would have done in the same situation... Buy fabric!
I exercised some restraint, but came out with delightful fabrics:
In the WIP department, I brought this quilt along to hand stitch the binding during my flights. Hope to get it done by the time I get back home.
I realize the pictures are not the greatest - I am without a regular camera and just used my ipad. It is my first time writing a post with just my ipad (and minimum time on a borrowed computer to transfer pictures). It is a little challenging, but I had to share!
Do you look for fabric stores when travelling? Have you ever discovered a nice little quilt shop completely by chance?
