Just letting you know that I'm back home safely. My dad drove almost the whole way back home. I drove about the last 3 hours or so. Between napping I made one side of a purse which I will frog because something is not quite right. :- I also made a wash cloth. I was on the last round in one of the contrasting colors and....ran out of yarn when I was about 3 stitches away from being completed!!!!! This was a yarn color left over from a previous project that I was just trying to use it up. I have a hair appointment at an African braid shop on Tuesday so I plan to go to the Joann's there and pray that they have this particular yarn. I had purchased it from the Joann's online.
While in Michigan I had the pleasure of walking into a Joann's superstore. Here in NC I think we only have the smaller stores. The smaller stores don't have as big of a selection and they don't offer the crafting/sewing classes. Anyways, I went there to activate my teacher discount card I had received in the mail. While there I perused the yarn selection with my mouth wide open because I've never seen many of the colors that were available from the yarn companies I had heard of. I purchased 4 unusual skeins of yarn for a particular project and some wooden purse handles. That's all, I promise. They were on sale and I had a coupon for 20% the total purchase...
I hope to have my computer back the first of next week. That way I can catch up on your blogs and post pictures!
FYI: Misty is now wearing the "clown fish" floral beret hat and she likes it! :-D
