It's "Hop"--pening!

I am so excited! Tomorrow morning I am meeting my dear sister-in-law Robin at 6am (ugh--Must. Remember. Coffee.) to have a girl-day, going to a Quilt Shop Hop. I've never been to one of these events. Six quilt shops in one day! Little prizes at each stop--and the Fabric! How will I be able to divide my money and spend wisely in each shop? I can spend next month's food budget faster than you can say Jack Robinson!

I am grateful she said she would drive. The "base" store is two hours from home, and the farthest shop is near Detroit--a little over three hours away. I don't travel that well, getting very sleepy as the afternoon goes by. I'm hoping to find a Starbucks, though...

Robin and I are sisters under the skin, as well as sharing the mutual blessing of my brother! She grew up in a little town, and has near 100 cousins! She always has lots of stories to tell. We always have an adventure when we are together, so it will be Quite The Day, when all is said and done.

Have any of you been on a Shop Hop? Any advice?

p.s. Next week I will post a photo of my third quilt top, which will be finished by then! The sewing muse seems to be parked at my house for awhile. At least that is what I'm telling Charming. The housecleaning muse, however, is on vacation. Same for the cooking muse. That's my story, and I'm stickin' to it....

Have a great day doing the shop hop thing! I've never heard of such a thing, but it sounds like a hoot!
