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.
hoping your fingers are flying....Peg
