On Thursday. Willa and I drove to Annapolis, MD to visit Cottonseed Glory. This is a lovely little quilt shop with a great collection of wonderful fabrics. I loved browsing through the batiks, the Kaffe Fasset Collective collection, and the color walls. There were many fabrics I wanted, but I only bought a couple of pieces. The prices in this shop were higher than the other places we have visited unless you looked around for the older bolts. The fat quarters were $3.00, but Annapolis is a very pricey tourist town, and I am sure the rents are high. It was wonderful to see all the fabrics they had.
After we left Annapolis, we crossed the Chesapeake Bay Bridge heading to Easton for another fabric shop. This is one of the world's best bridges, I think. It was great fun to be a passenger and look at all the beautiful scenery as we crossed the bay. Next stop was lunch.
We ate at the Fisherman's Inn, right near the water. I had forgotten how good a shrimp boil could be. Willa had a steam pot of mussels that looked very tasty. It is interesting to try and stay on my diet when there is so much great food here to eat. This restaurant had a very impressive, and large, collection of oyster plates displayed wherever there was wall space.
This is the small shop in Easton. The collection of fabrics is small, but I found several pieces I had to have. The plum colored PT Cruiser is the car Willa drives. It is very comfortable for tooling around and visiting quilt shops.
Now, for the fabric.
Friday, we went into DC to see a couple of memorials I hadn't seen. I will post those photos tomorrow or Monday.
Tomorrow is Easter. I hope you all have a joy filled day.
