"We get to go to Strawberry Patches tomorrow." That is what I heard from 3 of my granddaughters before I even stepped out of the truck Friday night as we arrived home from another week in Riverside.
I had asked Mama Olivia if they could go with me to pick out fabric for their "First day back at school outfit." and she had told them about it.
So, Saturday morning we were at Strawberry Patches just as they opened.
Drew looked around for just a few minutes and zoned in on what she wanted right away.
She looked around and was thinking about a black and white or a turquoise and brown, but decided on the gray, pink and orange because she had never had anything gray. I love that she isn't afraid to try something new. The picture above is a better, the color didn't come out true in the one below.
Lexi's biggest decision was whether she wanted a dress or skirt.
After considering blues and purples, she decided on a dress made from these pinks and browns.
Now Cami had a little harder time. She had already decided on a skirt and I told her it needed 3 fabrics.
Her first choice was red and aqua. Then we looked at red and pink roses. Then maybe blue...or...
But she too, went back to her first choice and we all agreed.
While Suzanne was checking us out, Cami asked if she could take some pictures and I told her sure.
These are what she thought cute enough to take pictures of.
We finally made it out the door with bag of fabric, patterns and smiles.
Don't you just love these doors.
I just absolutely love that my granddaughters share my love for this shop that has been so much a part of my life for over 25 years.
As we were driving home, they let me know that they are pretty fond of Suzanne, my friend and owner of this wonderful shop, too.
I forgot, I haven't shown you the models I made last week for that wonderful shop.
Next post...it's late and this girl needs her beauty sleep.
God is Good!!
Life is Good!!
