The Berry Patch
Yesterday, we took a day off from downsizing my folks. I made a trip to Niwot, Colorado to one of my favorite stores, the Berry Patch! Not only do they have a lovely array of gifts, soaps and ornaments of all kinds, but about 1/3rd of the store is devoted to fancy ribbons and trims!
The whole back wall is lined with shelf upon shelf of beautiful silk ribbons of all varieties. There are racks of exquisite trims and lace, some tiny and narrow, other's large and wide, both new and old, all beautiful and some very old (and very expensive!).
There are boxes of buttons in wonderful variety!
Each time I visit, I come home with a handful of treasures to use in crazy quilting! This time, I choose lovely bits in shades of green and rose.
I also was able to fill in the gaps of my silk ribbon embroidery stash with colors I'd used up. I also added some lovely silk threads and some new variegated rayon threads to try. A stop at the fabric store added some pieces of silk dupioni to my stash as well!
Now I just need to find some time to do some stitching!
