I decided to take advantage of Joann’s Columbus Day Sale and went shopping yesterday (beware, mini-rant coming up). After waiting in line to have my material cut (I had quite a bit), I found out that the scanner wasn’t working so everything had to be hand written – which took twice as long as normal (of course Easton was done shopping by this point which made it feel like time was dragging on). By the time I made it to the register, everyone found out that AT&T was down nationwide so no credit cards could be used. DRAT! I wound up having to put back a lot of what made it’s way into my cart so I could pay cash. Deciding that I would never have time over the weekend to head back over, I decided to go back to Joann’s again and pick up the rest of my items. What did I pick up?
Several items for my Christmas Stocking Swap: fabric for the stocking itself and material for some projects to put inside it (details to come later). I also purchased some fat quarters so that I can (eventually) start making Christmas gifts (I intend on making a modified pencil roll from Last-Minute Patchwork + Quilted Gifts for my niece and friend’s children).
I also made a trip to Michael’s for more stocking supplies – my favorite? Ink Jet Tattoo sheets. After our company leaves this weekend I intend on testing them out – maybe I’ll make my own version of this.
