Here we go again.  I have been blogging for nearly a year now on another site.  Unfortunately someone found it entertaining to hack the site twice.  I haven't noticed that people on this host have a lot of problems, so I am starting again here.  Hopefully this works out.

My hubby and I recently celebrated our 25th anniversary.  We took a little road trip to where we spent our honeymoon.  Things have sure changed. This is overlooking Osoyoos, B.C.

No road trip is complete without a trip to a quilt shop -- or seven. First up is a little shop in Oliver, that used to be Miss Molly's.  It's now Heathers Threadz.  I was surprised at her selection. Hers is the shop on the left.

Also in Oliver is Wine Country Quilts.  A very tiny shop that even has a long-arm !

I visited a few in Kelowna as well.  Lastly, we stopped at Pleasant Valley Quilting in Armstrong.

Across the street is the historic Armstrong Hotel.  Isn't it pretty? I would love to stay for a night if they are still taking visitors.

  I still think we have one of the nicest quilt shoppes right here in Kamloops, at Katja's .  The selection is amazing, and the samples are finished.  So much nicer to see a finished quilt rather than just a top.
Always nice to get away, but always nice to come home.

Hi Carla, Welcome to Blogspot.
Couldn't believe the name of the shop beside Heather's Fabricz in Oliver. Appropriate!
Great start-over post!
