    Smile Western WA Shop Hop

    Shop Hop starts tomorrow in western WA. I wanted to do all 52 shops but don't get to this year. But I will get to do about 30. Goes Wednesday through Sunday. Curious to know how many hoppers we have on the board.

    That's ALOT of shops to visit; my energy level drained just thinking about it ! Have fun and share with us your beautiful finds!

    I was never able to do the shop hop when I lived there. Have fun and I hope the sun will shine on you. Miss that area...except for all the grey days.

    Okay I am done hopping... my hopper is worn out, The last day was shop walking!!! But what fun! Its so great to see what other shops are doing!! I found the greatest fabric in The Undercover Quilt Shop in Seattle. Its a 1925 map of Seattle that they got permission to to make fabric out of. LOL no idea yet what to do with it but who can pass that up?
    I now know that hexes are the "thing" this year and I have never done one so I try something new. Great time and wish I could have done all the shops but maybe next year. Of the 52 I got 23.

I apologize to all...for no photos......didn't think of pics until I was done hopping...grgrrrr however it was so much fun seeing what different shops did with the fabric...cute cute cute
    My son asked which was my fav and not so fav quilt shop, I honestly did not have an answer! western washington you have great shops! Had so much fun going to try it again next year!

    Hmmm that's a great idea. I lay do that. I hope to get more north next year. Because I live in Tacoma I always do the central part. Not sure I have a fav, but I am more impressed by some than others. Attitude does it for me.
