It's Been a Good Weekend
Not a lot of stitching going on here. Boatloads of family in town for the holiday so busy, busy days. We had a lovely Thanksgiving--so very thankful for the good times.
Yesterday my sisters, mom and I did the whole Black Friday thing and I got about half my Christmas shopping done. Every year I tell myself how insane it is, but then I see how much I can save and out I go again. This year we were very unhappy with how many sales had been pushed up into Thanksgiving day so other than a fast(ish) trip to our closest Walmart, we skipped the other early sales and took our chances on Friday. Good decision as the lines weren't nearly as crazy as usual. First time I'd been to the Hobby Lobby in our area, but there was no time to thoroughly check out the fabric/sewing section. My first impression was that it's very similar to a Joannes in the types of fabric available? Mostly I was looking for Perle Cotton thread and was very disappointed to see that they only carried neutrals and a red--just like every other store. Guess I'm going to have to find a place online that sells the colored Perle Cotton. Any ideas?
