Boxing Day Shopping


We went shopping in Fargo on December 26 with friends from North Dakota. They took is to places we'd never find on our own, but, of course, my favorite store was Joanne Fabrics. The sales there were amazing because everything I really wanted was deeply discounted. Not shown in the photo is a 10 yard bag of white polar fleece for $20, regular $69.99 but in Canada more like $80 or more. I also found bargains on batting which I am always running low on since I got the quilting frame. In the photo are the fat quarters and blacks and white that I got. I love Karla Alexander's quilting methods so I got her latest book. I also found a flying geese ruler that I have been wanting to try. Within the family, we drew names and my SIL picked my name. Luckily, he knows just what I like best and got me the new sewing scissors which are just perfect. In spite of rotary cutters, I still use scissors a lot and a sharp comfortable pair is wonderful to have.

What a great shopping trip! I got the flyer from JoAnn's and was thinking about stopping by to pick up some of that polar fleece, but the thought of battling the crowds of shoppers just makes me want to stay home! LOL

I have that book and think it is her best one yet.

Wonderful to have new scissors... I don't use mine that often, but when you want them they need to be right at hand and sharp!

What fun goodies! I didn't do much on boxing day (though I did stop by a LQS that was having a sale) -- but I think I made up for it today at a yarn shop. Ooops! A good pair of scissors is a must! Luckily my husband understands that my dress making shears are off limits!
