Feels like I am loosing a good friend

There are several things that are high on my list of relaxing things to do.  Read a book, cup of tea, glass of wine and of course a walk on the beach.  There is also visiting a fabric shop - especially a visit when you are really just there to browse to see what inspiration may be sparked as a result.

Several year ago, I discovered a shop in Apex somewhat by accident - driving back from taking my kids to the park, taking a slightly different route home.  There it was - it was actually my daughter who was the one who spied it.  Many yards of fabric later, this shop - my all time favorite quilt shop - Plain & Simple in Apex, NC - is closing its doors.

It was a beautiful place - full of much inspiration.  Thanks for all the beautiful fabric.

I joined lots of people today as we shopped for fabric.  I got some fat quarters and a jelly roll.

I did get several multiple yard cuts of some fabric - some Pure (!), some tea themed and some gold that will make a good quilt backing at some point.

 Thanks to all the wonderful people who worked there!   I will miss you!

Happy Stitching!


  1. Hello Patty! I have a surprise for you! Go and check out my blog post today! Happy New Year!

  2. I'm so sad they are closing too! I live clear in Wallburg, so Apex wasn't a close drive for me, but we've also lost Randy's quilt shop in Greensboro this year....looks like we are going to be stuck with mail order!

    Happy New Year Patty!
