"There is nothing like staying
at home for real comfort."
I really enjoyed my travels but after 4166 miles there really is no place like home. I mentioned that in Fargo I had only 20 minutes to shop in the Nordic Needle before it closed, well this is how much damage I can do in such a short time.
I like to do Mill Hill kits but I find the frames are too expensive. These two were only $5.00 each. The two pendants kits come with the pendants lets see if I can make them since they are so small. I thought at $7.00 each that wasn't too bad. And yes if you follow my blog you will see I have 2 new pairs of scissors. What can I say I have an addiction.
I did manage to go to one thrift store. I thought this chart might make some cute little scissor fobs.
I also got a fun trip to the Hobby Lobby. I am afraid to say but all small scissors were 40% off. I won't even show you how many of those I got. I do like to give scissors and a fob as a gift and I knew they would come in handy. I also found this fun fat rick rack 50% off. I could not decide on what colors to get especially since I didn't know what I use them for but for $1.49 a spool I knew I needed three.
This is my finish piece that is one thread off. We stopped for lunch in Casper, Wyoming and a quilt shop was across the street so I took my piece in to match some material. I think I am going to make it into some kind of tote bag.
The last day of the trip I make this piece in the car. Yes I even did the bead work, and no I didn't spill any.
It was a wonderful trip and I am glad to be home. I will close with my little corn cob baby I made at the Laura Ingalls Homestead. Is this a face only a mom could love.
Always keep love in your stitches,
