Weekend Part II

I kind of disappeared on you...sorry about that. My week got busy once I returned to reality. Just didn't have time to update my blog! We left off last Friday, day two of our Illinois adventure. Our class wasn't until Saturday and so we had time to visit two more shops in the Chicago area.

Stop number one was at Tomorrow's Heirlooms in Glen Ellyn, IL. I had been to this shop before, but it was nice to visit again. They have been in business a long time and there are many treasures in this shop!

Our second stop was at the Inspired Needle in Lemont, IL.

It was nice to visit with shop owner, Cathy, again. Her displays of needlework are so creative. I really liked these two samplers. Christmas Garden was stitched over one-- it was gorgeous!

Have always liked this sampler from Hearts Ease Examplar Workes- it's called A Maryland Inspiration.

Bonus- the Plum Street Sample trunk show was there!

Paulette was coming to do a workshop with the Inspired Needle on Saturday. Too bad we couldn't be in two places at once!

Class with Betsy Morgan is up next...

Cathy, guess we crossed paths on Friday and didn't even know it. I was at Inspired Needle too. It was such a fun workshop with Paulette! Glad you enjoyed your class. You have had some fun road trips.

Happy summer!
