On Saturday I got up at 6 am--that's before dawn--to get to the Strawberry Sampler for their sale. The earlier you arrived (beginning at 7 am) the bigger your discount. And if you wore jammies to the party, an extra percentage off. I was there in my hot pink plaid flannel pajama pants for the 25% off. I got just a little new stash--I still had part of my Christmas gift certificate:
Cat's Whiskers "What a Hoot"
Hands to Work "Love, Me" (and the Crescent Colours to stitch it)
Primitive Needle, Moon Sicke
CHS, A Mind Independent and Free
CHS, Curse of the Raven (on the $1 table!)
CHS, Sarah Spurr (also $1)
Mill Hill, Arctic Circle Santas*
Lizzie*Kate, Dog Lessons for People
JBW, Bunny Collection (love that Liberty-style bunny!)
Three large pieces of fabric: Lakeside Meadow Rue 40ct, Picture this Plus Heritage 40 ct, Lakeside Autumn Gold 32 ct
a gift for a friend (not pictured)
I still have $6 on the gift certificate, and this is the second spending spree I've had with it! I'm going to have to tell my mother it was too big! ;)
Of course, it's not like I didn't buy anything at camp. I just haven't shown it to you yet:
Ten (!) Belle Soie silks for the Bermuda pattern I bought to stitch for the dude
CHS, Friendship sampler
Shepherd's Bush, Blue Snowman kit
Tournicoton, Chicken Love
Yes, not as much as usual, even though I had a gift certificate. Mostly because I knew about the pajama sale but also because it's hard to justify spending with the current job situation.
*This is the second time I've bought those Mill Hill kits. Free shipping if you'll pay full price for them...
