Sharing My Joy of Hand Embroidery, is a Joy Doubled, yet, recently I have added working with Hand Applique and Felted Wool. Yes, still all in all, I will remain a little Knot-y.

Quilt Shop Heaven
About three years ago I tripped across a small quilt sign on a post near the school that I worked at. It sure caught my attention while I was out doing errands on my 30 minute lunch "hour." Wow, I never noticed it before and I promised myself that I would investigate where the shop was after work.
After work that same day, I grabbed my purse, charged to the car, and drove the short distance back to the sign I saw. Tucked away, in a quaint little shopping stripe mall was Bearpaws and Hollyhocks Quilt shop. I parked the car, walked in and found myself in quilters heaven. I will share the web site address and you can check it out for yourself. www.bearpawsandhollyhocks.com Lindy Munday, the owner, was cheerful and made me feel like I was welcome to explore the shop and available to help me or answer any questions I might have. To this day she is still the same giving person and since I hang out there so much, I have seen her treat all who come to her shop in the same helpful manner. If I remember correctly there was a new mall owner at the time I discovered the "small" quilt sign. Today there is a nice big sign with all the businesses in the mall.
Bearpaws and Hollyhocks (BP&HH) is such a part of my life now I am sure I will mention it often. In fact Kim Powers, who blogs at Kim's Big Quilting Adventure, teaches at BP&HH. She is the one who introduced me to the world of "quilt" blogging, and I NEVER thought that I would be venturing into my own blog. We will see how this goes - if you and I, enjoy this process....
Perhaps you have a favorite quilt shop. If you do I would love to hear about it.
