Woolkeeper & Oswego ~ The End

 
 While at Woolkeeper, Kathleen mentioned that there was a quilt shop just down the street.
So of course I had to take a peek ;) 
 
 
Prairie Stitches Quilt Shoppe was a wonderful large store filled with fabrics of all styles. 
 
 
 I was amazed by the number of models that covered walls, beds, tables, etc.

 
 So much to see!


So much to inspire!
Prairie Stitches Quilt Shoppe has a website here.
 
So are you wondering, after seeing all this eye candy, what came home with me?

 
 The first thing that jumped in my arms was this wonderful Woolkeeper kit.
I've been admiring it online for ages and I can tell you that it is even more beautiful in person.

 
 I was so enthralled by the model of this table runner that I had to buy the pattern.

 
 I also had a tough time narrowing down which Horse and Buggy Country patterns to purchase as well. These two won a ride home ;)

 
 Woolkeeper also carries Eleganza Perle Cotton - a highly variegated thread. Kathleen pointed out that the colors change more rapidly than others - every few stitches. I can't wait to try it out!
She also carries bobbins of the more expensive wool thread. I love this! Now I can try out a few colors and see if I like them before making the investment!
 
 
While at Prairie Stitches I found a few older Woolkeeper patterns that I couldn't live without, along with JoAnn Mullaly's Folk Branches at a price I couldn't pass up! And "Little Butterflies" by Laundry Basket Quilts was a must purchase too!
It was a lovely afternoon and I am sure that I will be heading back for a visit again!
 
There is still time to enter my little giveaway here. I'll be picking a winner later tonight.
 
"And do not set your heart on what you will eat or drink; do not worry about it. For the pagan world runs after all such things, and your Father knows that you need them.
But seek his kingdom, and these things will be given to you as well."
Luke 12:29-31
 
Blessings, Patti

Another beautiful store! I can see why it is so hard to pick patterns. You sure chose lovely ones. Will be waiting for the finishes! I really loved the box. Thanks for sharing your adventure.

My kind of store. Looks like you picked up some Winter projects that are going to look nice once completed. Janice

I could have spent hours just looking at all the models...let alone the fabrics and patterns! I don't know how you did it, but you seemed to have chosen quite well...and I know you will work beautiful magic on each and every one.... Can't wait to see! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin
