Field Trip!

My husband and I took a quick trip to Virginia last weekend to celebrate my baby brother's 50th birthday!!  Hard to believe he was turning 50 which means I'm much older!!!!  But nonetheless, we headed north into what might have been some icy weather.  Luckily the weather Gods shifted things a little north and west and they only got rain which meant we didn't have to drive like banshi's to get there to beat the storm.  Which meant we were able to take a little accidental detour to visit a quilt shop a friend had told me about. 
I thought I remembered her saying it wasn't far from the highway but after we got off the highway and ended up on some back country roads, it seemed like we were going pretty far.  Well, to my husband it seemed that way, to me it just seemed like we were on a scenic adventure.  Men and women do tend to look at things a little differently.  Especially when the men like to stick to the highways and the women like to venture off on the backroads for adventures.  Well, back to the story..........
We found this sweet little quilt shop along the side of the road that was just picture perfect.
First of all we get out of the car and there is this truly babbling brook or creek that sounded so beautiful.  I have always had a fondness for babbling brooks!!  It was just so relaxing but we didn't relax too long because it was about 32 degrees outside and raining a little. 
The shop looks very small from the outside but I swear it grows once you get inside!!  There are three floors of fabric in that little building! 
Love this sign!  I sent my hubby outside to take pictures while I looked inside.  I thought that would buy me a little time.  He did a good job and took pictures of everything I would have taken pictures of!!  But he wasn't out there very long before he was back in again.  I asked if he got pictures of everything and he assured me he had and that it was cold out there.  So, of course, I had to hurry a little faster because he was pacing up and down the stairs!

A nice picnic area to take a break from shopping.  And listen to the babbling brook while you eat! 

How can there be three floors in that building?  I think it's magical inside and grows while you're there!  And beautiful fabrics.  On every floor I had stacks of fabric to be cut.  Ideas were flowing!! 

Bye, bye babbling brook.  Off to the highway again!
Need I say more, ROAD TRIP!!
