starting november right

Gift from Harley Chick.

Yesterday was our annual fall fabric shopping trip in Massachusetts.

Sound the trumpets, make the coffee, gas up the car and be on the road by 8:30!

We–wild women that we are– look forward to it all year.  As we are not gambling in the local casinos or buying designer shoes or haunting shopping malls, we have a little extra cash in our handmade tote bags to indulge our sewing passions.

Aunt Pat, Harley Chick and I returned to our favorite place, Franklin Mills, for a leisurely stroll through quilting fabric, yarn, notions, patterns and gifts.

Beautiful colors.

I shopped for fabric to make seat covers for Banjo Man’s little dining chairs in the updated Man Cave.

Runners up.

Aunt Pat looked at afghan patterns.  Harley Chick bought elastic.  We admired everything.

Then we made our way–via GPS–to Milford and a Panera’s for lunch.  Check out what they’re selling.  I almost bought one to stick in the freezer for Thanksgiving week.  This picture unfortunately doesn’t show the three-flavored danish pasty ring that I was drooling over.

 One more stop: JoAnn’s Fabrics.  Flannel was purchased.   As was foam, for the chair cushions.

And so another November shopping trip came to an end.  Such a treat to be with these two women on a gorgeous autumn day in New England!

I count myself lucky.
