Fun, Fun Outing !

"Whoever said money can't buy happiness
simply didn't know where to go shopping."
Bo Derek


Well I can tell you we all new the perfect place to go shopping. After a morning of stitching we all took a field trip to ABC Stitch.

This store is so big and the variety is amazing. Just take a look at some of the areas of the shop. There is a sitting area in the middle to relax to build up energy for more shopping. The variety of threads they have can make you dizzy. One whole wall has nothing but threads and it is so colorful. Besides that there are many more displays of threads. They have so many models stitched around the room for you to see many of them Finished. Nataly took me around and showed me the ones she stitched.







They also had a table in the back set up with tea and snacks for us to enjoy while we shopped.






I will show you everything I purchased later. I need to get a picture. After shopping we came back and did some more stitching. I was able to get my chair seat stitched and attached. I was so excited to have that part done. The rest will be no trouble at all.


The shakers hang the chairs upside down on pegs when they are not used. We thought it would be fun to put mine with some full size ones.




After a fun day we went up to our rooms and found another goodie bag hanging on our doors.


Today is a free day and Pam and I are going out with the 4 Aussie girls. I am sure there will be some fun stuff to tell you later.

Always keep love in your stitches,
Teresa
