Trenton trip with friends

Today was an awesome day!
I traveled with friends to Trenton Florida. We visited the Suwannee Shops
We had such a great time while we were there. The shop is big and jam packed with all sorts of stitching goodies.The scenery along our drive down was amazing...there were horses and cattle, and fields of green..


Here are some pictures from the inside of the shop...
We had a nice lunch at the little cafe just across the way...
The quilt shop is connected inside to the cafe. Lots of beautiful fabrics!


After eating our lunch..we browsed the beautiful quilt shop filled to the brim with gorgeous fabrics.
I heard a dog barking...then a cat meowing..then some whistling..I thought that to be odd for a quilt shop..but as I meandered towards the back of the shop..I saw who was making all that noise:

How sweet to see this adorable bird..watching everyone in the shop, he is so precious! He kept putting his head to the side of the cage so I could pet him...I was so surprised to find out his name was "Sunny"!!
That was the name of our bird that we lost last year. This bird was every bit as lovable as our bird used to be.

We also stopped in the antique shop....
many pretty things inside there also!
Way in the back there was a private "tea room"...so pretty in there...
 It was a beautiful day outside..the weather was absolutely perfect too..
we had a lot of laughs and a really enjoyable day today...





Here are the goodies I came home with...
Cross Stitch chart "Easter Line up" by the Trilogy
Wool Whimsy by Heart in Hand..look how cute this bunny is! I could not resist this little kit!
Thread Heaven
Assorted over dyed threads
wonderful pieces of fabric
a tiny scissor fob of a little strawberry
a small round tape measure with the Suwannee Valley Shop logo on it.

 Look at the wonderful ticking fabric I found! I am in absolute LOVE with it :)
I know I will put it to good use.
It won't be long before I will finally have a sewing room once again! I have waited many years for a little spot of my own again. There was an empty space in the center of our home that my husband is remodeling into a sewing/craft room just for me!
I am thrilled!!
Here is the beginnings of it...

He pulled up the rug that was there, and took down the ceiling to wall mirrors that were there. It is at the very raw stages right now, and doesn't look pretty...you can see the black glue on the sheet rock from the mirror panels. I close my eyes and can imagine what is yet to be!
I was so excited when I came home from my trip today to see what my dear Husband has accomplished so far.
Most of my stitching and craft stuff is piled up, I cannot wait to organize and create in my new room.
It is not a very big room, but just perfect for my needs.
I know how very blessed I am!
