Shop Hop Day 1!? 2 More Days Till The Give Away

I really lucked out because when I woke up this morning I had decided to clean the house, deal with the pile of mail and complete some tasks that I had on my list.  As I was making Jello (yes we eat jello in this house and I don't want to know what is in it), my 6 jars of salad,  a bowl of hard boiled eggs (3 hard boiled egg whites is only 1 point on WW) and cooking 2 artichokes...all the while, trying not to stress about one of the little guys in our extended family who just had surgery this week and another member who is facing surgery...I got a call!!!!  from Cakers, a Fabric Stalker and Woolie follower.  Did I want to go to the Bend shops listed on the Central Oregon Shop Hop?!!!  For Shizzel!!!  

The day started out with a nice downpour but it ended up in sunshine.  These flowers were blooming in my front yard and I couldn't pass up a photo.


The Shop Hop was a little different this year.  Each shop is giving you a free pattern and a fat 8th of a designated fabric line that is common to all the shops.  If you visit all the shops and get your card stamped you have the opportunity to  win an awesome sewing machine...one of the spendy ones!  Plus there is a sign up at each shop for their own Give Away!  You needn't worry about snacks along the way as each shop had eats...and I mean great eats!

I had a wonderful time, looking at all the new merchandise...right now stuff is arriving daily in preparation for Quilt Show week!  If you can't attend our shop hop and see something you gotta have just call the shop and they'll be happy to send you your wants and needs!  I hope I'll be able to make the other shops but it all depends on that balance I talked about yesterday.  

Only 2 more days until the Give Away!  just follow the instruction on the give away post to participate.  Enjoy the slide show!
