I was so jazzed when I left Jaala’s I was in the mood to drive all night- filling the fuel tank and calling my dear husband put me on the right track to find a hotel and sleep for a while.
Tuesday I just drove
I had an extra bit of fun sending post cards to a beloved twitter friend’s daughter; her class was collecting them this year. So each state I went thru I found, wrote out and sent a post card.
I woke up at 4 am and decided rather than trying to go back to bed I would wash up and hit the road, I was really ready to get home. I had one more stop to make before home though and I did not want to skip this one.
I arrived in State College Pennsylvania at 9 am. I grabbed a doughnut, some fuel and took a nap in a parking lot waiting for my friend’s incredible yarn and fabric shop to open.
It was fun to see the look on Cynthia’s face when I walked into her shop- Stitch Your Art Out.
She did a double take and then came and gave me a big hug.
Cynthia and her friend and co owner Kim own this remarkable shop. Stuffed to the brim with lovely fabrics and beautiful yarn.
I was in the mood for another quilting project and had to get some yarn of course.
A little over an hour and I had picked out fabric for a quilt and some yarn for brioche play.
2 skeins of Interlacements Shepard’s Worsted
2 Cascade 220 as compliment
a boat load of cut fabric, and batik rolls and fat quarters
I love this shop and recommend it to any one in the area.
I left with all my goodies right on time and arrived home at 4:30, for a total of 2,566 miles.
It was a wonderful trip and worth every minute of it!!
Time to find a place for all this fabric and yarn. They will be happy memories when I start working with them.
