I'm Back!

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

  2. I'm envious too! Do you know the only yarn available at our very-small stores only located in big cities? Acrylic and... more acrylic!!
    Hope you can find that skein you need. Only 3 stitches away :-(

    And Yay! for Misty, the lucky girl with the clownfish beret on!

  3. I am glad to know you made it back safely.
    Hope you find the yarn you need, I hate when that happens... and it's funny, but it happens way too often with me.

  4. Glad to hear the trip home was a good one.

    I know what you mean about the smaller stores vs. the bigger ones. We had several of the smaller ones here in our area and then a huge store went out of business, JoAnn's bought the place and combined two of the smaller ones to make a huge superstore. Awesome. Glenn gets scared when we walk in there. LOL!!!
