Michigan - a very lovely state!

Hubby and I just got back from a long weekend trip to the lovely state of Michigan - we went to visit my friend Allie (and her mom - hi Pat!), and to do some shopping.  Joann Fabrics was having their annual Daffodil Dash, so I decided this was a perfect time for a road trip ;) 

It was fantastic meeting up with Allie and her mom again - I think it was 2 or 3 years ago that we saw them last?  We had a great time going from store to store, we had a lovely lunch at a Red Olive (great restaurant - I wish we had them here in Canada!) and our late evening ice-cream run to Cold Stone Creamery (requested by Pat, who was having a dessert craving, LOL) was a blast :)  I think that the annual Daffodil Dash should now become the annual Allie and Pat and Dennis and Sandra Do Novi trip :) 

I unloaded my new goodies onto my kitchen table this morning, and got a few pics to share (pix edited with Fotor) - I think there are a few items missing, but this is most of what I bought ;)

The large photo is pretty much most of my crafty/fabricy purchases.   Clockwise, from bottom right:  fabrics I bought just because I liked 'em, notions, my favourite fabrics to have on hand (including my favourite tone on tones), fabrics I bought with specific projects in mind, and the two new patterns I bought :)  
I think I may just have enough fabric for now ... but ... I'm not betting the farm on it ;)

  9. It's always perfect when you can meet up with friends, so fabric shopping and eat ice cream but not so perfect when you have to come home and work off that ice cream LOLLL Love all your new stuff. Have a blast making things with it.

  10. I used to go snowmobiling in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, but I never go to go fabric shopping there :( We are planning a driving trip for this summer (I'll actually be coming into Canada for a couple days) and I hope to find some fabric shops somewhere along the way!
