What a reality check this morning. It took me an hour and a half to drive 19 miles to work!
I'd rather be back in Yosemite!!
On the way home, the first town out of the park on Highway 41 was Oakhurst CA. We were just contemplating stopping at Starbucks when I suddenly whipped my head around and yelled, "A quilt shop!!" My friend who was driving slammed on the breaks and did a wheelie!! And she's not even a quilter!! LOL.
We went back to the shop and it wasn't open! Oh, no!! The good news is that it would be open in ten more minutes. So off to Starbucks, and then back to Bear Paw Quilts & More. They're located right on Highway 41. You can't miss the shop!
The owner is Donna Henning and her shop is adorable! There were lots of gorgeous samples hanging, and lots of kits and inspiration! Yes, I indulged! So? I mean, a gal's gotta do what a gal's gotta do!
Donna posed for a picture!
I would encourage anyone who is traveling up that way -- and you really should! -- to stop at Bear Paw Quilts! Trust me, you won't leave empty-handed!
Donna, thank you for being so gracious and warm! I plan on making Yosemite an annual trip, and I'll definitely be stopping by to say hello and indulge a bit more! I'm just sorry I didn't get a kit with a bear on it to commemorate my visit. Next year for sure!!
