Our Texas adventure, Part 5

GRS Creations and FabricsSunday, October 19, we packed the car and headed south again. On the way, we had the great pleasure of meeting the woman who commissioned Acceptance, which is a duplicate of Surrender. We had such a pleasant time visiting with her, it hardly seemed like we were meeting her for the first time.

After lunch, we traveled to Spring, Texas to see a quilt shop called GRS Creations & Fabrics. This quilt fabric store resides in a big, old house. It didn’t look like much from the outside, but inside every room, every nook and cranny, is absolutely packed with bolts of beautiful fabric. Each time we would turn the corner and see even more! It was such fun exploring that wonderful store. It is well worth the trip if you are in the area.

Painted Pony 'n QuiltsOnce I was finished, we climbed in the car again and headed south of Houston. Another night’s rest and we started our on our adventure for the day. First we went to Painted Pony ‘n Quilts. They have a huge store with a wide variety of fabrics displayed in a very well organized fashion. Be sure to visit this shop when you are in Houston! They have rocking chairs outside for your hubby to sit and wait while you’re shopping. Here is a tiny sampling of their terrific store.

Sweet hubby had decided that he wanted to make another fused portrait for a Christmas gift, and he had been searching each shop we visited for the perfect set of fabrics. He finally found another gradated set of beautiful fabrics to use.

From there we had the rest of the day to make it through downtown Houston to the last hotel on our trip. More about our Texas adventure tomorrow.
