McKenna Ryan! Both Valerie and I are big fans of her quilt designs and have done several of her quilt patterns. Valerie has done more than I have ... so not only is she the "Hand Appliqué Guru" ... she is also the "McKenna Ryan Queen" ... yep, a woman of many talents! ;-)
Churchmouse Yarns & Teas! We both love and appreciate their patterns! Our local yarn shop, The Net Loft, carries their designs ... so that made an actual visit all the more special!
Esther's Fabrics. I love how they had fabric samples displayed outside the shop entrance ... it really gave a taste of the atmosphere in the shop! We found it full of unusual fabrics, unique patterns and notions, and extremely wonderful staff! What a winning combination!
Do what you love. Visit new places. Do dillydally!
