Visited a lovely shop...I got wool !!!

( Quilt above sewn by Anita isn't it beautiful ?? Design by: Lisa Bongean (Primitive Gatherings) I visited a lovely shop today...Anita's Homespun Treasures ..It's located about 40 or so miles from me...The woman who owns it, Anita, shares the space with a Quilt shop on the other side... I've been at the shop before, but of course with all the beautiful quilts and other finished items hanging on the walls, and adorning little nooks and crannies, not to mention the wonderful wools and other fabrics everywhere, I just about died and gone to heaven when I walk through the door... Anita is a really nice and very talented lady...She has a few of her own beautiful designs published, and has created so many other awesome goodies with wool and other fabrics... I am just going to post the pics, but you will see a really unique loom...Anita spins, weaves, knits, crochets, sews quilts, does wool appliques projects...hmmm I know I must've missed something.... Oh, and she overdyes some of her wools and the colors are PERRRFECTION !! You will see some of the wool I purchased..hubby laughs because I asked him to keep the bag of goodies I bought in the back , but within reach for me....He said " I know why ,,so you can fondle and admire your goodies on the way home "...well....of course !!! ...lol I also had to buy a few pattern books..I wonder when I will do anything from them ????Don't we all have that problem...?? So if you are ever in the area ( Warren County Pa. ) stop in and tell Anita I sent ya .... Here is the address and phone: Anita's Homespun Treasures Intersection Rt 27 & Ross St. Pittsfield, PA Open Wed-Fri: 10-5pm & Sat 10-3pm 814-694-7134
