-A NIMBLE THIMBLE-- Tyler, Texas. This is a wonderful quilt shop. If you are ever in the area, it is a "MUST STOP AND SHOP" place. Let me start with a few pics of the shop (now that I have your attention in that area). You will see that Katie (shop owner) has created a place where you can learn and purchase supplies for just about all crafts. I have recently developed a love for wool (see "Tree Time" free BOM on my right side bar). Nimble Thimble has the most wonderful collection of wool that I have seen.

Mercado's for dinner--our favorite Tex-Mex food place. Of course they also have great---------------------------------------------------------------------MARGARITA'S!!
The reason Kathleen's eyes are shining have nothing to do with the Margaritas--she is wearing her new lighted glasses! hahahahaha
I ordered a salad. Most of the time salad's are a light meal--NOT AT MERCADO'S!
Now--if you visit A Nimble Thimble Quilt Shop, be sure to mention to Katie that "THE WACKYS sent you. We are hoping for a few extra points for it. Katie is a delightfully friendly person. I took a pic of her visiting in the shop but she made me promise not to post the pic as she did not feel she looked her best. But you will know her smile when you walk in the door.
