In a Week ... Oh the Places I've Been!

Sorry I've been so absent ... internet access while traveling this week has been difficult!  But that hasn't prevented me from dillydallying!  I have been busy and it will take many blog posts to cover all the dillydally fun that has happened this week!

I began this blog three years ago in order to share the Minnesota Shop Hop with the Alaskan QBees!  So the intent of this post is to just mention the shops I visited this past week.

Shops I visited in route to and from Bemidji...
Colorz for Quilts in Brainerd
Mother Originals Quilt Shop in Pequot Lakes
Ann's Quilt Cottage in Bemidji
Monika's in Park Rapids
Front Porch Quilts in Walker
Country Fabrics & Quilting in Brainerd
Shops I visited with the "Metro QBees"...
Millie P's Quilt Shop in Anoka
Bear Patch Quilting Co. in White Bear Lake
Rosebud's Cottage in White Bear Lake
Shops I visited with the "Sassy Stitchers"...
Calico Hutch Quilt Shop in Hayward
All in Stitches in Stewartville
Pine Needles Quilt & Sew in Rochester
The Quilting Cupboard in Rochester
All in Stitches in Zumbrota
Fourth & Main Fabrics in Cannon Falls
Whew!  Now you have an idea of how busy I've been!  I will write a post about each shop ... eventually!  In oder to be online, I've had to visit coffee shops with free internet ... there is only so much coffee I can drink in a day! Hee-hee!

Yep ... you have an idea of how busy I've been ... but what you may not know is how blessed I feel!  The "Metro QBees" and the "Sassy Stitchers" have inspired me in both quilting and personally.  I treasure the time I had with them and the memories we created together.  Yep ... there will be future posts about them as well.  They shared their time and talents with me ... I am so touched by such generosity!
Do what you love.  Share.  Do dillydally!
