    Just guessing, you probably don't care for green cause the color doesn't look good on you. I heard from some source that we tend to like colors that look good on us.
    Welcome to the states, I hope you get a chance to visit a few more of our "quilterly" places. Amish communitys have fabulous shops, Shipshewanna, Ind., Pennsylvania etc. One was so fab that I had to step out for awhile, sensory overload. LOL.

    Harriet Hargrave's store is less than 2 miles from my mom's when I visit her I almost always go shopping at Harriet's. I have to be careful to not over spend the fabrics are so great. There is something for every taste. I love her batiks.

    Judi, I think you may be right as it make me look "yellowish" when I wear some of the greens. the forest green suits me but when it comes to choosing different coordinating green fab that's where I hesitate as far as my liking goes....loll

    Kateyb. I thought her staff was the most helpful people I ever encountered in a fabric store.

    Learned that I loved pink and blue but simply couldn't wear them...talk about faded out!!! LOL But the good thing is, since I can't wear them I now love them in quilts so I guess that's having the best of both worlds. ;-)

    one of my favorite souvenirs is fabric from the place we visited, preferably with a theme representing that place. For example, in Maine, I bought blueberry and lobster fabric. In Florida, I got flamingo fabric.

    right! I bought for my SIL fabrics with bears and forests. she has a small wooden cottage in the country where she can sometimes see bears...That's right I did not put them on the pictures I forgot.
    Then I bought a nice panel at Harriet Hargrave's store. A reminder of my vacation

    Just read your post. Holloway's Country Home is a wonderful place to shop. Maria (the owner) is a real gem. Luckily, I live close enough to her shop that it's an easy trip for me to make.

    She does have beautiful fabrics, that's for sure. We are so lucky to live in the Smoky Mountains. Here's Holloway's website if you're interested

    Lovely site. I took her business card while I was there but I forgot that others might be interested. Thanks.
