So the other day on my way home from work, I took a side trip to Joann's "just to have a look around." I haven't looked at fabric or notions for a long time and I wanted to see what was out there and get some fabric ideas for this apron swap. I loved roaming the aisles and seeing all the wonderful, bright, yummy fabrics, trims and ribbons. I love the feel of the fleece and flannel and velvets. And....$40 later!...I came home with just a few things I couldn't manage to live without.
Two little fabric bundles (I have absolutely no idea what I'm going to do with them. I just thought they were cute all bundled up and tied with a ribbon), two garden gnomes for my hubby to put in his garden. They have absolutely nothing to do with sewing or this swap, but they were 30% off and Chris likes the freaky little fellows...Quite honestly they give me the willies. I think they come alive at night and plant the weeds that appear in the garden. Two checkered tablecloths - which we'll actually use this summer when we camp. Red is my fave color and I love checks and dots. A skein of yarn to crochet a scarf for a gift and of course I couldn't leave without the "green" Joann's shopping bag. I don't need another tote...I have a gazillion of them...but I'm a sucker for totes. I love them.
