Third time's the charm

It is filled with pure silk balls, wool yarn, felt balls, ornaments, and needlepoint art. I have to say that I felt a bit out of place because I don't know anything about needlepoint and the different yarns available out there. Yet, as a creative person, it was certainly yarn heaven. 

Our family trips to New Orleans usually consist of much walking, taking lots of pictures, learning about the city, and enjoying what Cafe du Monde has to offer.  During the first two trips to New Orleans, we encountered a little shop full of wonderful things.  The shop is called The Quarter Stitch Needlepoint.  Unfortunately, the shop was closed during those first trips. The phrase the third time's the charm was certainly true in this case.  Our recent trip to New Orleans gave me the opportunity to enjoy the beauty this shop has to offer.  Here are some snippets of my relaxing time at the shop.
