February 23rd, 3 Midwesterners ventured out of their territory and traveled to a new land. They saw the mts of New Mexico and marveled at the beautiful scenery of Sedona, AZ. They saw many unusual sites: from the snow falling on the cactus, to the enormous hole of the Meteor Crater, to the breathtaking beauty of The Painted Desert.

But, their main quest was to find The Attic! What? The Attic, you nonstitchers might ask, what's that? Only one of the top cross stitch shops in the United States! And we, the Midwesterners, if you hadn't already guessed, had the privilege to visit it on their Market Day!!! Can it get any better than that??

My friend Janet and I were greeted at the door by the owner, Jean. What a lovely gracious lady!
Here we are posing with Jean in front of their wonderful sampler wall.
Jean escorted us to the Market Room that was already packed with other cross stitchers. Oh, the treasures we found!

We loved the shop so much that we took a lunch break and came back for awhile in the afternoon! We would certainly recommend visiting this shop to any cross stitcher! It is well stocked with all the designers' charts, lots of floss and fabric and the models are stupendous! We hated to leave, but knew that we could order from them after we returned home if there was anything we'd left behind and "needed"!

Trip, Part 2 will feature scenery pictures of the Southwest, NM and AZ.

Until then I hope that Spring is Blooming at your house!


  1. You are one lucky lady...sad The Attic isn't closer. Happy Spring to you too!

  2. That's a nice bit 'o stash you got there Sharyn!
    I'm glad you had a great time and enjoyed your trip.
    Can't wait to see the next pics of your trip.
    Murf :)

  3. Keep up the great work.

  4. Sounds like a great trip!!! Great stashing too!!

  5. Great shash haul! Isn't it great to be able to put your hands on the stash before you buy it? To see the 'real' color of the linen or fibers? I have a wonderful LNS, and feel really lucky!
    Nice blogging and great stitching! Love all your ornies!
