Then as the sun broke through the clouds, we wandered around town, shopped a little, checked out the plaza and the musical fountain (which is done for the season--big surprise), and had lunch at a cute little cafe that was too girly for words. We found a bookstore (The Bookman), where once again we were received with kindness and interest. So note to self, Grand Haven-ites seem very open to new authors.
We did Holland next, but I'll turn it over to Liz because we were all about the quilt stores in Holland.
Tonight, dinner in Saugatuck, tomorrow more wandering around Saugatuck that could possibly include a winery or two...hmmm...
Hey, everybody--it's Liz. My friend Mary asked me if we'd hit any quilt shops, which left us no alternative but to...yup, that's right...hit quilt shops. After lunch (and ice cream) we went to Fields' Fabrics, which was on the order of a regional Jo-Ann Fabrics without the craft sections. The nice ladies there gave us directions to Pressing Matters Quilt Shoppe, where there were more nice ladies who liked hearing about and from Women Who Write Books. I got a handy stack of fat quarters I didn't need, but that gets us into talking about addiction, so I'm just not going there.
Not many pics today, but we saw this--the one on the right--in an antiques store today and took it for Margie, who will know exactly what it means. I hope she tells you about it soon because it has to do with a concept that is just so cool!
Below is a little present for Ava Cuvay, who will be joining us soon--don't miss her Word Wranglers Debut next week!
