Shop Hop Goodies

On the 28t of last month some of the ladies from my PQA group went on the local Shop Hop. We drove over 100 miles, were gone for over 7 hours and made 9 stops. It was a long day but it was so FUN!!! Here are some of my goodies. 

Maybe this will be a new hobby for me. Making scarfs. The yarn comes in a bundle all squished together. They were teaching how to knit it but I have never knitted. I went on youtube, love that site for learning something new, and found a Spanish speaking lady teaching how to crochet them. I just turned off the sound and watched. I love this scarf!!

I saw this in one shop finished and I loved it. Looks so fun. That little roll beside it is for a thread catcher. It was a gift from one of the shops. It has a couple of jelly rolls in it to finish it. 
Here is what was in the above kit. All the strips are already cut.

Here are a few fat quarters I bought and some that were gifts from a few shops.

My DD#1 picket out 7 half yard cuts of black and white fabric for her Graduation Quilt. 

See those little hexies. They are 3/4 inch. Love them. They are for a tiny pincushion. I used some of the fabric I got to replace the fabric that was in the kit. I also bought a very tiny template. 
Here is the pincushion finished.

 Orange side.
This is one of those twister templates. So cute. Do you see how tiny it is. 2 1/4 inches square. 

Thank you for going along with me to see my goodies. I hope that if you ever get the chance to go on a Shop Hop that you do, it is so fun!
