a "busy" day....

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 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. 


  1. Oh, I would love to see this place. How far is it from Keepsake Quilting?

  2. Love love Jo Morton.....sounds like you will have plenty to work with during our next snow storm!

    Hmmmmmm, early April, I might need to make a trip to see the new goodies.

  3. So glad that the weather held it's breath for you to enjoy the day. I'm looking forward to seeing your treasures!

  4. oh lucky you I am dreaming of the day I get to go shopping in person at Cyndi's. I do get boxes from her a few times a year :)
    can't wait to see what you bought.

  5. One of our favorite quilt shops!! Currently working on a potholder quilt with some fabric I bought last April during the quilt shop hop!
