Spring Fling Shop Hop

Sandy and I had a great time on Wednesday and Friday traveling around for the Spring Fling Shop Hop...the Baker's Dozen....13 shops in 13 days. And travel we did, 185 miles on my car Wednesday and 146 miles on hers on Friday! Thank goodness for our GPSs!
Every shop gave out a free pattern for a block and a free recipe. We have one more shop to visit before next Saturday when the hop ends. It is local, so no real traveling for this one. We then hand in our stamped "passport" at the end and hope that one or both of us wins one of the sweet prizes each shop has offered. The following are some of the pictures of the blocks and how the shops made them up as their project.

Sorry for the blurry picture here....these purses were really cute and I bought the kit for the blue and peach one....batiks.

This shop had 3 different sizes of its block.....this was the largest hanging outdoors on the front of the building.

I love the 30's fabric in this table topper.

Isn't it fun to go out with friends that share the same interests. Looks like you two enjoyed your shop hop.

Oh what fun to share with a friend. Wonder if I could do that here in Aus.
