|Little Quilts in Marietta feels like walking into a quilter's home - very warm and way too much to see in one trip through! After seeing Mary Ellen at Quilt Market for so many years it was great to see her beautiful quilt shop in person. I felt right at home there, all I needed was a comfortable chair and a good quilt book!|

|The next stop was Tiny Stitches - oh my! So bright and cheerful! It felt like a breath of fresh air walking into her light filled shop. Love, love, love her customers! I had a lovely visit with customers and staff and was treated to some delicious homemade snickerdoodle cookies. I was a happy camper.|

I loved seeing what Cindy Lee (Tiny Stitches staff) had done with some of my patterns. She has a great eye for color and piecing and it was really fun to see patterns stitched up with her creative twist. She took my pattern Love and Laughter and completely made it unique and fresh!
A customer, Vicki Nielson, showed me what she had done with the patterns from my book Gather the Passing Seasons. She had made each one using wool applique and they turned out so cute. I'm kicking myself that I didn't take a photo. I love how creative people are and how they feel comfortable making changing and bringing their own creativity to projects. This was a wonderful way to end out trip.
