The Attic - Part Two

 Here are some more pics from The Attic.  As you can imagine, everywhere you look there are shop models.  Such inspiration!!!!!!







 If you arrive without your readers there are tons of glasses to choose from!
 If you arrive without your favorite lamp there are ones to borrow!!!!!!


 I found this to be very inspiring.  Take one square of Christmas at Hawk Run Hollow, stitch it and frame it!!





Oh what's this?  Just a table of beautiful fabric!!!!





 We were lucky to be present when a shipment from Italy arrived!!!!  These are beautifully hand dyed, aged fabrics from The Primitive Hare.

 You can bet we were stalking Jean when she opened this package!!!!



And we waited until the price tag was affixed to get this chart Patriotic Queen of the Needles into our hot little hands!!!

I will close with our dinner one evening.  We were stitching at the hotel.  All of us were too tired to go out anywhere and we could not think of what to eat.  We were leaning towards ordering a pizza to the hotel when the desk staff told us there was a Portillo's nearby.  We unanimously rose to our feet and decided that is where we would go.  We were trying to eat at places that are not available to us at home.....but the lure of Portillo's was just to great to ignore.  So, off we went in Arizona to a restaurant that was totally decorated like it was right in Chicago!!!  

Coming up.....our afternoon with Tanya Brockmeyer and Sampler Sunday at The Attic!!!

So glad you enjoyed your visit Laura! My DH and I hang at Portillos way too often LOL...there's another one north of Mesa that's closer to us. Portillos is a Chicago institution and the ones here in the Phoenix area are usually packed with former Chicagoans and Midwestern visitors. I hope you brought home a big stash haul - I chuckled to myself as you picked out several of my favorite models in the shop and things that have been waiting to be stitched for way too long.
