Oh gosh, I'm late......off on a trip today, the longest I've ever been on AND with a seven hour layour at LAX, treating ourselves to the lounge which will be rather nice....
So, some spending occurred, here in Michigan and in Canada! All the fault of the two friends I was with, of course.......the first stop was at the Thread and Eye in London, Ontario.......lots of lovely patterns and threads and a lovely welcome from Kathy who seemed to know our companion, Melissa, really well........just saying.........!
Keeping an eye on the exchange rate I concentrated on patterns and came away with an appropriate one for a friend, another that I'm ashamed to say I can't remember what it is and a real treat.......an autumny one from Jeaneette Douglas which I thought appropriate!
Back in Michigan, of course I HAD to take other friend, Frances, to Stitching Bits and Bobs up in Plainwell.........well, what can I say....she went all sulky when I said we might not get there..... This was an opportunity to spend the gift certificate from lovely friend, Mouse, not the last birthday but the one before that........eighteen months old! Worth waiting though as I got all the threads for the Douglas piece.
Add in five DMCs and a couple of GAST threads from here in town and Bob, as they say, is me mum's brother!
No photographs, sitting drinking coffee at just past the crack of dawn and must go and finish getting ready.......
Lots of love, gillie
PS....Gifted Gorgeousness.......well, I was the lucky one with treats from Ruth and Jo. Do go and
