Arts and Crafts

Yesterday, we made it to NorthHampton to the Webs store and it did not disappoint. I was overwhelmed in the main store and couldn't make up my mind. I also made it to the back room. OMG unbelieveable. I finally just bought a couple of balls of Trekking Pro Natura sock yarn. Heather will get to choose one, the next time we get together. We then had a great sandwich for lunch.

Next on the agenda was Stow, the home of Quilting Arts magazine. http://www.quiltingarts.com/ After a lovely ride through the country on a grey day, we found the store quite easily. The store owner was packing up many boxes for the Houston Quilt show, there was a great assortment of things to chose from, books galore, I got 2, dyed silk rods, rubber stamps and I bought some mermaid stamps for my altered art as well. I forgot to get a photo at Webs, but I am happily clutching my stash after shopping at the Quilting Arts store.
On the way back to the motel, we stopped at the mall in Woburn and went into the Fabric Place, mostly household and quilting fabrics. The fashion fabrics were a good selection but fancier than I need in my wardrobe. There was also a good selection of knitting yarns and books.



Today, was a bit drizzly but we didn't get too wet. We went to the Museum of Fine Art http://www.mfashop.com/index.html and it lived up to its reputation. The Monets were wonderful, saw some great contemporary art, interesting shoes and then we had a great Asian Shrimp salad for lunch.

From there we saw a small section of Copely square and had a look at expensive clothing and shoes. Really neat stuff.

Isn't it funny how overwhelming a fantastic yarn store can be. I probably would have just bought some sock yarn too :)
