    Smile Oh Boy! DH got me for Christmas........

    A very large gift certificate for Lolly's in Shipshewana, IN. He is so sweet. I think I'll keep him. Should I spend it upstairs in the regular store or downstairs where everything is $5.00 a yard? Those of you who live in this area know what I'm talking about and why I'm so excited.

    That's an easy decision - if you usually limit yourself to shopping downstairs, then now's the time to break free and buy some fabrics you usually wouldn't allow yourself. Good husband!
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    No, we opened our gifts last night so we could use them today. He got a Kindle Fire for Christmas and he can use it while I'm driving the four hours to son's house for a couple of days. Unfortunately Lolly's is closed today. However, I may wait to spend it until February when they have their pajama sale. If you show up at 7:00 am (I think) in your pjs everything is 20% off (I think).

    I'd plan to spend hours there. Check out both upstairs and downstairs, make notes on what you really like, then look them all over again and buy what you absolutely love. Have fun shopping.

    Have fun.
    I would have to go two or three times to plan what I would want to make. Make a list and then go on PJ day.

    You could get more for your gift if you went on PJ day.

    Our newspaper here in Virginia just had an article on Shipshewana. I told my husband "Boy, I would love to go there and visit the quilt shops" and the area. Sounds like a wonderful gift. Merry Christmas.

    What a great guy. I suspect you'll find fabric you love in both shops. I've been there once and loved it! Wish I lived closer (Then again, maybe not)! Enjoy.
