What's My Zip Code?
Whew, what a whirlwind week! You might have read of last week's visit from Stitchin' Rock Star Joan Seidel. Well, this past Tuesday I was astounded by another famous visitor. I had to double-check my zip code because with all the celebrities popping in the shop, I was thinking it was 90212! Where do all the celebs go when they want to be seen? I may need to get a red carpet in front of the shop soon!! LOL
I was minding my own business, taking care of shop paperwork & ordering when a customer walked in the front door. I greeted her and left her to her own meanderings. She was there with husband in tow which made me think that they were out enjoying some of the small town atmosphere of Lemont. A lot of times couples will stroll into the shop simply because they want to find out what it is that the store sells.
Shortly after arriving, my customer informed me that she heard of my shop through the blogs and had read of Joan's visit. My customer, Melody, traveled all the way from the Quad-Cities area to visit my shop! Best of all, her dear husband volunteered to drive her to Lemont on his day off! You gotta love a guy like that! Unfortunately, I left my camera at my MILs house so AGAIN I had no camera! Waaaahhh! I apologize in advance for the horrible picture quality but I had to use my phone! Here's Melody and her husband Mike.
We swapped stories back and forth and I also discovered that Melody has a blog. Melody is new to the blog world so swing by and check it out. She loves to stitch Prairie Schooler, Little House Needleworks and Blackbird Designs! She also shows a finish of a Marjolein Bastin piece that is just amazing! I see that this traveling duo have just returned home from a week long trip to the Southeastern States. Do they get around, or what???
Many thanks, Mike and Melody, for driving out to my shop. I enjoyed our visit; I hope you had a good lunch? I know we will run into one another again in cyberspace or perhaps in Lemont one day in the future?!
