My friend Elaine and I went on a quilt store shop hop. For those of you who do nit know what that is, you go to several quilt stores in a day (or two) and shop! You have a passport and the store will stamp the passport.
At the end you turn it in and you may win a prize.
Nope, I did not win a prize
Look at my new treasures!
When we were looking around one store, I peeked on a lower shelf and then let out a squeal(really a big squeal)!
Berenstain Bear Fabric
ARE YOU KIDDING??!!
Why oh Why did I not know about this?
I immediately grabbed the bolts and held on tight!
Not only did I buy the fabric I bought all that was on the bolts!!
First bolt I finished...
Next bolt I finished...
Third bolt I finished...
I was so in love with this fabric that I went on-line to find more!
I see some fussy cutting in my future!
The Berenstain Bear books are very dear to my heart. I have read them literally hundreds of times to all three of my girls.
I now get to start over with my grandbabies.
This cross stitched picture has hung in all my girls rooms at one time. I made this when my middle daughter was one and yes when I could see!!
It is now hanging in my office.
Yep 1985! Gee Whiz I am old!!
This quilt will be my summer project.
I cannot wait to pull out all my books and stuffed family.
Yes, I own the whole family!!
While we were shopping one of the shoppers mentioned that Jan Berenstain has passed away not to long ago; very sad news.
But their books will always be a very important part of our lives.
Hmm, off to eBay to see what Bear goodies I can find.
Shop Hop Part Two Tomorrow!
