Shopping Finds!

I'm visiting my mom for a couple days this week... one of the things we decided to do was drive to Stoughton, WI, park the car and walk the lovely downtown area. There are a lot of really cute shops (including a quilt shop!), and it was a beautiful day for walking.

I found a couple of really cute things that fit right in with my love of sunflowers :)

Great Shopping Find!
I just love this little print!! It's perfect for my quilting studio :)

Shopping Find!
And aren't these just darling? I don't know if I'll ever actually use them as coasters- I may hang them on the wall.

The best part is that both of these items are made in the USA. That's important to me!

I also found some really great black and white prints to use in my New York Beauty blocks :)

Now I'm off to work on some Hoop Up swap stitching!


  1. Glad you had some great finds and a fun time with mom!!

  2. Great finds Jennie! I too need to get going on my Hoop Up projects. Pillow Talk and DQS have put me way behind... Yikes!

  3. Hi Jennie, Love the sunflower items you found! I have a pic of sunflowers I grew as the header on my blog. Almost time to plant them again. Right now I am also doing an oil painting of huge sunflowers. Just can't get enough of them!
