as mentioned, among other plans for the day was a visit to cyndi's shop "the busy thimble." as you can see, it is oh-so quaint and country looking with a nice picnic table out front for warmer days. on the porch were some sale bolts but nothing called to me as i walked by. inside the little shop was full of shoppers and many bolts of lovely reproduction fabrics. i had pre- ordered my "indigo crossing" so just browsed while others were served. along with the ordered fabric, i selected a couple of jo morton fabrics, some "new colonies", some FQs earmarked for projects and 2 cheddar solids....photos to follow another day. good thing i spent the time before leaving sewing up and cutting up....i need the room! on the wall was a log cabin done in barn raising style; blocks were about 3.5" finished.....simply gorgeous! cyndi's love of small quilts is evidenced by the many on display. i'll be making another pilgrimage in early april to see new goodies not yet arrived. if you love reproduction fabrics and are ever in maine, you simply MUST go here.
