Mission Completed

It is always an adventure being in JoAnn Fabrics. Today was no exception. I don't think that I have ever seen it so busy as I did this morning. People up and down isles, excitedly talking of their projects, and "Oh, I need to get buttons!"

Today I walked out with some goodies: a piece of white striped shirting (my mind was thinking in terms of a couple blouses, or a Regency gown to sell), some dark green corduroy with the large "wale" to try out in a winter jumper since we always get the fine stuff. And the biggest purchase of all, ::drumroll:: a quilting frame! I have had my eye on them for quite some time now, and I have had several people recommending the PVC (or is it PCV?) pipe frame. Since they are $100, I always tell myself "no." However, since they were 50% today and I had a 20% off coupon, who could say no? =)

I think I had a very nice shopping experience today, and enough to keep me busy this winter! =)

Oh, I wanted to mention:
I finally got my tatting site back up! It was hosted with our sewing site, and therefore it disappeared when I chose not to renew the domain name. So anyway, I have moved everything over to a blog now, and so do take a look! And btw, I don't have all the designs up yet, and so stay tuned to see more up over there!

HOW FUN!!! I'm so excited for you!! I know you'll love quilting. You'll have to post some pictures once you get it all set up and a quilt on it!

We were just in JoAnn's today. Gets a bit wild at this time of year...

So you're going to take up quilting? That would be a good use for all those scraps of yours... :)

Thanks, LeAnne! Sewing a quilt top doesn't scare me, it's just the ACTUAL quilting that does... I'll be sure to post pictures. =)

LOL, yes Rachel. Like I need another iron in the fire, right? ::wink:: I have done a couple quilt tops, and so doing the actual quilting will be, I think, an adventure. Have you done any quilting? If so, I'd love some pointers!
