Weekend in Ellijay

My sister and I headed to Georgia this weekend and spent a couple of days with our aunts who live in Ellijay. Aunt Janice and Aunt Karen -- my dad's sisters -- own Strings and Sticks Yarn Shoppe and this was my first time to see their store since it opened. (I posted about it here.) It was SUCH a nice weekend. Their house is in the mountains (MY FAVORITE!!) - and out of cell phone range, so it's a good getaway place. (I'm sure the Aunts probably had that in mind when they moved there from busy Atlanta.)

Mendy is excited to be giving Granny her first great-grandchild.



They had an activity at the center where Granny lives -- making ice cream. She thought it was silly, so I shook the Zip-Loc bags for her and then she enjoyed ice cream.

Then we went to the yarn shop where we spent a lot of the rest of the weekend.
(More on that in my next post.)




That may not mean much to most of you, but let me tell you -- this yarn is the best I've put my hands on. Hands down. If I ever worked at a place like this, I would make no money. I would spend it all. Every bit of it.

And in unrelated news, I finished this blanket yesterday.

You sound like me when I'm in a quilt shop or fabric store... It's all so heavenly and beautiful and I want it all! Glad you had a good little trip!
