SHOPPING DAY!!!!

First though--
that Miss Gracie is better--
thank you for all the concern!!!

Girl friend took me shopping today--
out of town--yes!!!!!!!!

First place we 'hit' was a Quilt shoppe--
have wanted to get to this one for awhile now--
and look at these goodies--
this quilt shop does have a large area of needlework supplies--
I just love the 'Wildflower" collection by Caron
and I did find one with red/green thread for the Tis the Season blocks
and I have been looking for the Sulky blues thread for along time--
I think I am going to need these colors of the 'blues' for this quilt--
are these not to die for!!!!?????
This is going to be the Home Sweet Home one--

(yep--I have to redo the 'H' block already--it is done in another color!!!

&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&

Also here is a better look at two small counted cross stitch patterns--
did not realize though that the one on the left is a Christmas one--
duh!!!!!

And when I had my shop I sold these--
coasters---they are made from recycled books here in US--
I love these--was so excited to see them and to pick out a couple new ones--
want to get more when I go back--my old ones are still in great shape--
just want something new to look at!!!!

&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&

Went to the Book store--but only bought a magazine--
then lunch at Wendys--
then on to Joann's--
I really can not believe the prices of the decorations there--
and they are somewhat 'cheaply' made---I mean $35 for a simple wreath with some silk flowers--give me a break!!!!
Did find these treasures though--
I wanted some 'eggs' for some bird nest I have and I knew that now would be the time to find them--this package has a tan color and a robin eggs blue ones in it and in a couple different sizes!!!
the silk flowers where on sale--not sure where I will use these--but????
Found the gold and the teal fabric I needed for the black and white bom I am in--
and I got myself a nice pair of scissors for cutting out applique patterns--the were $15--but I had a 40% off coupon and today was another 10% off everything--so decided it was as good a day as any for buying them!!!

Oh and yes-we did go to Petsmart for miss gracies food--
that was the main reason for going out of town shopping!!!!!

I am really really tired tonight--
so for me -- it's to my favorite chair--
got that magazine to read!!!!


                             and that Miss Gracie!!!!!
