Forgive me for being silent for so long! It's been 10 days since my last post. But I really DO have a very good reason!!!
We've been on vacation in southern Georgia at our son and daughter-in-law's house. There will be more in-depth posts about some of the past week's activities, but for now, I wanted to share this quilt store that we found in Hahira, Georgia... Sew Blessed 2 B Quilting, located at 201 S. Church Street. It is an old gas station that has been converted into a store front. :) And if you know me, you know how much I LOVE LOVE LOVE old buildings!!!
This is me and Janie Blalock, one of the very kind ladies that works there...
This store is an "extension" of Sew Blessed, a fabric store that caters to heirloom sewists, especially those that make children's clothes. We hit that store first, where I was able to find some 100% cotton red checked gingham fabric to make some more "Choo-choo Train" quilts for upcoming grandchildren!!! ;) Do you know how hard it is to find gingham check that is 100% cotton??? Most gingham fabric has polyester in it. :(
From Sew Blessed, we got directions to the quilt store, and that is how we ended up at the Sew Blessed 2 B Quilting store...both owned by the same person. :) The quilt store was just opened in January of this year. If you are ever in the area, I encourage you to look them up!! And don't forget to take the time to enjoy the intriguing architecture of the old gas station!!! :)
