Stash happy

Found a new "local" LNS -(an hour away--not so bad). Funky little store that's been in business 33 years and is one of the most welcoming stores I've been to. Case in point: I was admiring a sheep charm one of her stitched models (I'm into sheep, trees and green!) her immediate response was "I don't think I have any more of those but I'll cut that one off for you". When I protested she said "what does it matter-I can get one in so quickly and no one will know".  THEN she had these boxes of back issues of Xstitch mags and I'm talking 2005, 6, 7 8, 9...all at 50 cents!  So you can see I stocked up.  Found some other patterns I'd never seen so bought those too!  Great, fun day out.

  1. Stores like that are keepers on the return-to list. What a find and that she would just simply cut off the charm...wow. With all of the magazines, your fingers will surly be stitching up a storm.
    Be always in stitches.

  3. Oh wow...I am so very happy for you that you finally have a LNS close by that you discovered.

    You lucked out buying those magazines for fifty cents each...wow....

    My LNS was a half hour away but now it is almost 2 hours away but that is okay though because I love my LNS and I go there alot from Spring through late Fall.
