When I mentioned earlier in the week that I wish I could take part in the Shop Hop-a marketing idea targeting quilters, Bill designated Friday adventure day again and we mapped out our zone of attack!
We decided to start out in Orange City, then New Smyrna Beach and here in Daytona where we decided to stop for lunch!
We had a great shrimp po' boy which fueled us on to our next stop!
(Isn't this a fun restaurant? It is built over the water so the view is perfect for viewing ocean and surfers.)
We visited 6 shops, almost running out of time with our leisure and a minor distraction with a flea market! lol We did learn one thing-these quilt shops were very friendly and encouraging people!
We traveled from Orange City to St. Augustine, visited some shops I knew about and some that were a great, new find!
This was my knitting project for the car ride. With my leftover skein of sock yarn, I made a little newborn hat......I have another grandson due in December!
And there was enough left to get a good start on this little sock to match!
Let me just say, I am so tired tonight but it was a wonderful day and a great gift from my husband!
(I am not a shopper in general but it was such fun to put the address in the Garmin and take off together to explore and laugh and conquer! I said it was so much fun we should do it every Friday but we decided that maybe our budget would benefit from a bit of less than a weekly adventure!)
