They go hand in hand for us. How? Well, it's like this....We have a Goldwing that we dearly love, but Harley stores are much more fun to visit and whenever we go for day trips to visit a Harley store, we also go visit the quilt shops in the area. Saturday was a Harley-Quilt store day in Waukon, Iowa.
Here is Russ (minus 45 pounds! Way to go Russ!) putting chaps on so he can test drive a Harley trike.
Okay, enough of the Harley store. =)
Lets go to the quilt shop!
On our way into town, we rode by this sign on the highway.
It's truly a country shop because it is out in the country. Country Stitchin' is run by two sisters, Jane and Peg, who live in the house across the drive way from the shop. If I were to own a shop, this is how I would want to do it.
Here is the front of the shop. Isn't it pretty?
Friends, this shop is worth the drive and a stop if you are ever in the Waukon area. We have added this to our favorites list and will be back to shop here again.
The pictures are not the best since I only had my camera phone with me. Sorry about that. =/
This is the view as you walk in the door. As soon as I saw this little bit, I knew I was in for a treat and I was not disappointed!
They carry many patterns and books...
and they have a wall full of notions that any quilter could want or need.
And, of course, lots of eye candy everywhere...
These are tacked up to the ceiling! I laid down on the floor to take this picture. =)
The view of the main room....I just now noticed the vintage sewing machines on the top shelf! There was so much to see. I know I missed a lot more than the machines.
Here is a sampling of the goodies I came home with.
Because Country Stitchin' does not have a web page at this time, here is their information in case you want to go see for yourself, this darling store.

My regrets? I wish I had taken a picture of Jane, who was in the shop that day. What a dear, sweet lady. And I wish I had taken my good camera to take more pictures. Next time!!
