Today is a sunny Monday! My son is off for a teacher workday, or to recover from watching the Superbowl. Good timing!! This morning I ran some errands, which brought me to Jo-Ann Fabric and Crafts. I needed some micro suede for a church project, and I just needed to make sure I was not missing anything! After finding the suede, I found two new flannels and a cotton floral. Those made it to the cutting counter.
After going through the fabric, I checked out the yarn/cross stitch section of the store. I hit the jackpot! In addition to finding a couple of hoops, I found DMC fibers. Several colors of the variegated perle cotton 5 were marked down, as well as some other fibers. Here is the loot I came home with:
I will see how long I can hold off searching the internet for some of the other fibers I see being used during this year of stitches with these colors.
When I finally got home, ate leftovers, and checked the mail, I decided to use some of the DMC fibers I picked up earlier last week. I added a nice substantial stem for my sunflower. I love how the colors change!!
