The Quilt Center and the Beach

On Thursday we went as planned to drop off the class samples at the shop where I teach and I thought you might like a peak at my " local" quilt shop! Local is in quotes because its a 45 minute drive and I cross the country from east to west to the shop-The Quilt Center.

Its in an old little house and when you walk in the door-you're right in the kitchen!-a great place for students to meet and for everyone to have a cup of coffee and a cookie, look over the class samples and the wonderful assortment of threads and silk ribbons! Classes aren't on now so its being used for a little bit of storage-the cardboard fruit boxes are filled with fat quarters! This is one of the two rooms filled with fabric, tools and books.
This is the classroom-now being put to use organizing the latest shipment of fabric-there's lots more out of camera range.
Oops, I forgot to take a picture of the fabrics that I bought...yes, I couldn't control myself-I'll share later.
Then it was off to the beach! We always go to the same beach-Banana Beach at Achziv-its just north of Nahariya.
There's a nice restaurant-I love their frozen ice coffee...
right next door is Club Med Israel-its those buildings on the rise with the tall palm trees.
Its was a beautiful day...and the water was great!

Here's my sweety enjoying the late afternoon was getting a bit cooler but we just couldn't leave...

Miri, I just read a post on another blog about a new class starting being taught by Miri, I wondered if that was I know it is!! I so wished I was able to take that class. How fun that would be to be able to take a wonderful class by a friend. You are very talented and I know who ever signs up will be so glad. Your quilt shop looks amazing and a friendly charming atmosphere.

Thanks for the peek inside the classroom. What fun. I can't wait for some pictures of all the people having a good time there.
The beach looked lovely and I wouldn't want to leave it either.
OOOooooooh, I went to a quilt show the other day and posted a link to an album with some pictures I took. I thought you might enjoy seeing some of them. :)Bea
