I'm getting something new

"We tend to forget that happiness doesn't come
as a result of getting something we don't have, but 
rather of recognizing and appreciating what we do have."
Frederick Keonig

I do very much appreciate all that I have. I have truly been blessed. But I can't help but be very happy with a change that is coming.

(I know this is a bad photo but you see it getting on the freeway, I told my husband slow down as much as you can so I can get a picture. He can be so kind some times.)

I know I should be grateful the old Michael's is 4.51 miles away and is very old. This one is 1.27 miles away and will be totally new and clean. The word out it is going to be top of the line. My old Michael's is now having a sale and the new one should be here the first of September.

My husband is leaving on a week long hike so I should be having some stitching pictures to post soon. I am off tomorrow to get some fabric to finish "Grumpy" and for a few other items.  I saw I lost a follower, I hope "Grumpy" didn't offend anyone.

Always keep love in your stitches,

Hope your Michael's is a vast improvement over the old one!

Don't fret the lost follower - I lost one last week and got 3 new ones. It happens.

Enjoy your day tomorrow!

How fun! My Michael's has been cutting down a lot on the stitching stuff they carry. I hope they at least keep selling floss and fabric!

I know I was excited when they opened a Michaels withing walking distance of my house (not that I would ever walk there) but I know how you feel :)


Ooh, that is good news, a newer, bigger Michaels. I keep hoping Hobby Lobby will build closer to me, it is an hour away, but I still make that trip monthly.

That's good news, a newer Michaels near you!

LOL, it happens sometimes that you start to follow a blog, and then it's not what you think it will be. I doubt you offended anyone. Here's hoping you'll get lots more followers to make up for it! Glad you're getting a new store. My Hobby Lobby just moved into a newer store. It was about four and a half blocks away. Now it is three, yippee!!!

Yay for you! :o) Mine is 1.5 hours away.

I wouldn't worry about a lost follower, I have that happen all the time too :)

Wonderful news that you will have a new Michaels close to home! I have one that just opened up last year a 5 minute drive away from me too and I love it! Now if only we didn't have to pay 1 and a half times as much for our items things would be even better!

Both Grumpies look good!

Congratulations!! I know what you mean, it sounds goofy to be excited about that, but I was the same when (back in the US) we got a new Michaels, since our JoAnns is cruddy and in a bad area. Enjoy!
