A well spent day......

....finding joy in the journey of life is of utmost importance.  That is the day we quilt friends spent.  We are such kindred spirits........birds of a feather!

This is how we began .....fantastically delicious.  My taste buds were filled with wonder!

I have a new I Pad and things are happening, and I know not how.  This latte was as good as it looks.  And tucked away in that cute little box is Kouign Amman.  A pastry they are famous for.  I dream of these, and find reasons to go down town to experience this decadent pastry!

Then we found our way at the Shepard's Bush in Ogden, Utah.  The stitcheries in this shop will knock your socks off.  This is a must for anyone who enjoys cross stitch.  They send their products all over the USA and the world.

These are the 2 sisters who own the shop.......and talented they are!

Next stop was Village Dry Goods in Brigham City.  They have some of the most remarkable fabrics and wool.  I forgot, but our first stop was actually in Bountiful, Utah, which is also a lovely shop.  We managed to support both of these quilt stores, and also The Shepherd's Bush. Remember we were just there a couple of weeks ago, so there were not new display items.

However, we stopped by Diane's house, and she showed us the Steam Punk quilt she is working on.  Each of these blocks are a wonderful surprise.

Winston Churchill wisely admonished, "If you're going through hell, keep going."  In a book I'm reading by Ben Behunin, he goes on to advise that we don't linger there.  We all pass through hard times, but the secret is to pass through them and take up residency.


  1. I just spent 20 minutes at Shepherd's Bush website. What a beautiful shop, fabulous projects, and yummy recipes all at my fingertips. I would love to visit in person but for now will probably give them a call. I'll tell them Norma sent me!

  2. I sure would like to visit Shepards's Bush. I send all my needlework to be framed from Michigan to Rensel Studio Framing just down the street from them!
