Slide Show of the Tater Patch Merrill Oregon

During the week they are 2 doctors, 4 nurses and 1 nurse practitioner.  On the weekend...they are the Fabric Stalkers!!!!  Saving Fabric, kits and notions from languishing on the shelves!  We were SUCCESSFUL!  Call it pack mentality, but I always spend more than I intend to when shopping in a gang!  Get a BIG cup of coffee and enjoy the slide show.  If you see anything you can't live without call the The Tater Patch .  Tomorrow's blog...the damage to the wallet....

  4. What a fun trip you all had. Guess I'm going to get a gang together and make our own road trip. About a 6 hour round trip for you, plus maybe 1 hour for lunch. What was your departure and arrival home time. Must of been a long day--but worth it. Can't wait to see all the loot.

    1. It was amazing! We met at 0730, finally got loaded and stopped gabbing by 0800..on the road. Stop for potty and drinks in Chemault at the Pilot travel center. Arrived in Merrill just before 1100. Feverishly ran around for an about an hour. Ate lunch at the cafe down the street. Back shopping more leisurely...done and on the road around 2:00. Stopped in Klamath Falls for ice cream. Stopped at the rest stop in Chemault for a potty break and back in Bend by 5:00PM when Nancy had to head out for her retirement party/overnight camping event. An extraordinary day of catching up on family news, planning an impromptu retreat in July and talking about quilting! A Perfect Day.

  8. It looks like it was a great trip! I don't know how you passed up the Hooterville kit though. I printed out a picture of the pattern--maybe someday! Of course, there were many, many other temptations too. What did you buy?

  11. That is one amazing shop AND your pictures were great. After looking at hundreds of "market" pics that are a panaromaic of a booth and and a zillion objects where it is not possible to focus on anything these photos were a delight!
