the best of...

what a life!!! sarah and i spent the day shop hopping through the southern salt lake area.  there are many shops to choose from in the utah valley.  we'd like to share our top three...

pine needles in west jordan. we stumbled upon this one by taking a wrong turn. so glad we did. they had me at the bird house hanging outside the door.


and the inside certainly did not disappoint.  sarah was a bit surprised and not to happy to see that huge quilt hanging overhead in central park. i'm thinking she was under the impression she had an exclusive with her friend kate. i assured her she was not to worry. she does have an exclusive. in lyndhurst, ohio:)


our next stop was planned from the minute we knew we would be coming to salt lake city. i've been following this shop for sometime, even before we had decided to open a store. i just knew there would be an element of fun here...


sure enough. nadine does it so right at material girls quilts in south jordan. madonna music and all. so worth the drive.


our final stop of the evening was such a delight. quilts etc located in the historic sandy, utah area. such friendly women working here.


the front room was adorable. then we walked into the back room. can i just say...wow. you know i love the white cabinetry, but how about all that fabric?!?


and that was a wrap for today. sarah told me her bones were hurting and managed to find this great little alcove to park it for a few moments. we had such a great day. we are moving downtown tomorrow.  stay tuned...

This is Jana, Polly's niece, we met briefly at the mall on Tuesday. I was super excited to see that you guys made it to Quilt-Etc. I basically grew up in that store, on of my really good friends Grandma is the owner. Did you see both shops? (The one on the North and South side of the street?) I get overwhelmed sometimes with the amount of fabric they have!! :) So lovely to meet you both!
