Shop Hop and Cookie Exchange

On Saturday, Tammy, Shelly and I planned to drive to the Avon Quiltery for their Christmas Open House, but Mother Nature had other ideas. It was snowing and blowing and the roads were icy so, we decided to have a local shop hop of our own. We started at Joanns and then visited Quilters Harvest. A stop for lunch was in order and we tried Hungry's, a chicago style hot dog place. I tried to be healthy and ordered a chicken caeser salad, but they were out of chicken, so I settled for a hot dog. Tammy had the chili dog and Shelly and I had the chicago style hot dog. Quite good, I must say!

Then on to the cookie exchange at Mary's house. This is an annual event and so much fun. This is what I came home with and more photos are HERE on my Flickr page. I think I'm going to stop putting photos on Webshots because of the ads. I don't mind the ads on the side of the page, but when they blast me in the center of the page and I have to click to remove them, it irritates me.

I put my cookies in the freezer for Christmas dinner. I know if they sit out, I'll try just one and then another, and then another, and then they will be gone and I will weigh 5 pounds more.

Then on to Rossville Quilts for their 1st Anniversary Sale, where I purchased 2 more yards of the Moda Flower Show II for pillowcases for Jeff and Dané. I also picked up a FQ of black Fairy Frost for a photo quilt in the works this week.

The last stop was Michaels where I picked up a bunch of $1 items and some Wilton Candy Melts for dipping pretzels.

Whew, makes me tired just writing about it.
