It has been a beautiful day here today. Love it, yes the traffic can get pretty scary at times. The store i went to about the patterns, was just wood working patterns and embroidery and sewing. Nice little store thou, she did tell me where a Jo Ann Store was, and wonder of all right across from a Walmart. I wasnt to impressed with the yarn selection thou, nothing grab my attention, didnt find anything in the scrapbooking department either, so went thru the magazines and picked up Love of Crochet, Holiday 2012, Special Issue. Lots of Christmas patterns, broomstick patterns, scrafs hats. Went on to Walmart and didnt find nothing in there either, just decided on as I was looking thru the material that I wanted to make Christmas curtains for my kitchen and they had no material that jumped out at me, so will try the Walmart when we get home. Almost time to get ready for the Dixis Stampede show.
