Let's Go for a Ride!


Home is in a very small town. We have a pet llama and two alpacas. Most days they go for walks around town. Occasionally they're accompanied by a horse friend.

We have your typical gas station with the essentials, but as for a quilter's needs, one must take a road trip. Off to Charm, Ohio, to Miller's Dry Goods. It's one of my favorite local shops.



Notice the quilt on the ceiling? Straight in the door the top floor is packed wall to wall with the freshest fabric. The store is well laid out, and easy to navigate even with full arms. Off to your right you'll find the jelly rolls, charm packs, and layer cakes in the bakery cases. Kits, patterns, notions, and books pack this side. The sales help is friendly, and may I say, "Charm-ing". 

Fresh combinations I might never have put together before. 



Time to rest with a strong cup of tea. I'll bet my partners in crime were tired out, too. Many thanks for a memorable day out.

Post a Comment

It's always enlightening to hear your thoughts or suggestions. I try to respond in a timely manner, but admit life is very full here! I will return comments online if it's of general interest, but offline if a personal response is more appropriate. Give me a shout with anything urgent at julie@pinkdoxies.com, and I'll try to get right back with you. While I believe in free speech, spamming will not be tolerated, and as in all our interactions, speak kindly.

If you want to be certain of a personal reply, leave your email or email me privately. Many people are not even aware when they have become a no-reply blogger. Yes, I know it's frustrating for us all.
