Quilt Shops, Food, and back home!

Texas Rose Antique Show
Honey Bee Quilt Shop

I had a great time in Austin. I got all the arrangements for Matt's graduation in a couple of weeks and found a few new shops that I will re-visit. I went to a couple of Quilt Shops while I was there. The first one that I visited was The Quilt Store on Anderson Lane. It's a little hard to find because it is behind the shopping center but it's really a neat shop. I found the prints by Heather Bailey that I have been looking for to make a lap quilt. If you like to quilt or do cute projects Heather has fabulous fabric prints that she designs and she has several patterns and instructions on her website. I also visited "Honey Bee Quilt Shop" on Hwy 183 North and Anderson Mill Road. This is a great quilt shop and I loved looking at all the beautiful fabrics and the people were so helpful and nice. Places I like to eat when I visit Haley are Santa Rita's - great Mexican food and the nicest people that work there. I eat breakfast at La-Madeline's every morning and drink the BEST coffee! We also eat there for lunch occasionally. On the way home we stopped by "Dirty Martins" and had a cheeseburger. We both agreed we prefer "Huts" over Dirty Martins but both have good burgers. We made a stop by the Texas Rose Antique Show in Round Top and we enjoyed walking through all the booths that were set up. They had lots of vintage Christmas ornaments and other decorations as well. It is such a pretty drive through Round Top. I must say it looks much different than it did when we were there a couple of months ago for the Fall Show. If you have time to spare this is really a beautiful drive and neat things to browse through. We are back home and settled in and watching Texas-Tech and O.U. game. I have a few pictures to post but I will post more later.
