Fabric finds

Finally went to the little country/prim/quilt store near my sister's here in Ohio. This is one of my favorite places to go when I visit my sister. I asked if I could bring my camera and take a picture of the store and they said yes. So tomorrow I will head back and take pictures - this is just a tiny store that has been in the owners family for years - it use to be the general store. The original meat counter is where the register sits. Lots of the family things are displayed on the upper part of the walls.

Below is fabric that I found to go with my Sarah Tobias Needle
I think it goes really nicely with the linen and thread colors - do you agree?
I also found some of the Moda Sampler fabric. Below is coral on ecru panels.
This is random sampler motifs in Brown on Ecru.
I also found several books that I would like, but purchased this Christmas one and a Penny Rug pattern. The glass jar is a 'fly catcher', just could not leave that - way too quirky and fun.
Well, that is it for now - hope to get some good pictures tomorrow of this little cute shop.

Thanks for visiting --- Roberta

Love those fabrics that you got, especially the sampler one. Where in Ohio does your sister live? My husband grew up in Cleveland--right near the airport.

I love your choice of fabric Roberta! I agree it goes perfect with your Sarah Tobias needle roll. Nice sampler fabrics too. Enjoy your new booklets.

I look forward to your pictures of the shop.
