Thursday's Road Trip!

If you didn't make it to this week's fiber day, then you missed one heck of a trip! We met at 9:00 am at my house.

We loaded up and headed for Farmersville, Texas, home of Fiber Circle Publishing (now yarn shop). Wow! If you haven't made a trip up to Diane's yarn shop in awhile, you are in for a treat!

Walls and walls of yarn are to be found EVERYWHERE! There is a second story with a balcony that is loaded with great things.

Everyone was enamored with a certain "pom pom ball yarn". Diane immediately began giving us an impromptu lesson on a scarf design. We had a blast!

Diane's shop is filled with yarn, knitted scarves, hats, sweaters, vests, shawls, etc. You name it, she's got it! Diane is an avid knitter and crocheter and published magazines on both for many years. She designs her own patterns and is very willing to share with others. Also included in her shop is a decadent fudge, some yummy jellies, jams, smoked jalapenos, and many dip mixes. You just can't go wrong with this place.

Later, we headed down to the 'Sugar Hill Restaurant' for a delicious lunch. For $7.95, you get an all you can eat buffet of wonderful hot food, many cold salads (tuna salad, chicken salad, broccoli salad, pasta salad, green salad, etc.) and soup. The food was wonderful. Give it a try when you are in town.

We finished up our road trip with filled bags of goodies, anxious for our next visit. This is a fantastic yarn shop. We had so much fun! Don't worry Diane. We'll be back! We're HOOKED! :o)
