Cross Stitch Road Trip

I try to get up to visit Friendship Crossing in Corvallis, OR a couple of times a year. 

My mom and I drove up on a Saturday.

Ann has such inviting displays...

Charts arranged by designer in wicker baskets.

It's July so patriotic designs were front and center. 

I enjoy looking at the framed pieces.

Most times one or two 'grab' me and I get the chart. 

It was Crazy Days in Corvallis, and I went a bit crazy scooping up sales charts and kits.  

I also bought enough new charts to keep me busy for the foreseeable future!

Next time, take me with you! It's summer now, but soon the snow will fly and I'll need some new cross-stitch to occupy my hands while lazing in front of the fire!!

Nice to see that some cross-stitch shops still exist. So many closed down or switched to other craft related items years ago.
