Mystery Quilt Trip
Our first stop is The Button Box Quilt Shop in Wellesley, MA.
They had some gorgeous fabrics. The store was set up by color which made finding a particular color or shade so easy! We could have stayed here all day! I did buy a few things!!
Our next stop was at Wellesley College, They have some great green houses and exotic plants. I'm not into plants but I went in anyways. This is the only thing that caught my eye.
We got back to the bus and ended up in Newtonville, MA at a place called The Paint Bar. We were told we'd be eating lunch here also. There were cold cuts, chips, cookies and cupcakes. I had a diet coke but you could actually get wine or even a mimosa! We found out we'd be painting here. We were all a little surprised. I have no artistic ability. I can't paint a picture to save my life but everyone was a good sport about it and we all gave it a try.
By the time we got to the bus, it was around 4:30. It seemed like it would be too late to make our last stop. However, the shop was called and they stayed open for us! We went to Fabric Corner in Arlington, MA. My phone was almost dead so I didn't take any pictures at the store. I did buy a few things.
I was totally exhausted when I got home last night. We did get a little Make and Take project for the bus ride which I never made. I made it while watching TV.
It was a long day but so much fun!
