Shop #2 on quilty day

It might be Christmas by the time I get around to posting all of the fun stuff we did in Minnesota, and about the Galena show!

Our second stop on quilty day was in Walker, MN at a shop called "Front Porch Quilts".  It's hard to get past the porch - they have those baskets that I am in love with.  Must. Have. Restraint.

There are all kinds of tempting things inside...
 More tempting...
 Aunt Nancy couldn't resist - she bought the Halloween kit shown above...
 And look at those pretty wools!  And that little basket - I can't control myself with all of this!
And look at these cute miniatures!!  Oh so tempting!
I could not resist these 2 pieces of wool.  The top one is for pumpkins and you know I love red - had to have it!  I actually had some of the miniature patterns and a little stand in my hand - but I for once, showed restraint, and put them back!

The owner, Jana was not in the shop that day, but Merrily was working - it was nice to meet her - and she was also at the guild meeting that night.  As a matter of fact, I made 2 pair of earrings for her this week!  Merrily....if you are reading this...they will be in the mail on Monday!

Thanks for visiting...more to come about "quilty day" later.

Have a great day!
