I finally finished my Handmade Christmas cards and found or googled all the addresses, stamped, and made it to the mailbox...whew!! I was beginning to think it was Mission Impossible. So I treated myself to a quick trip to a wonderful cross stitch store. I left around 3pm and immediately got caught up in a huge traffic snarl. Unable to take a different route, I was stuck for around 45 min. before getting on the freeway. It was nearly as bad, but needless to say, I made it to the store with only ten minutes shopping time. Luckily the rain had stopped, and I was the only customer. I said, "I am a fast shopper, show me your JUST JANS, please". She handed me several stacks of leaflets and I happily pulled out four that I wanted. I quickly grabbed a few scraps of linen, then remembered to ask about the embellishment packs. I joyfully sifted thru them and pulled out four that I must have. Adding up the total, I gleefully paid the bill and hopped into my car and sped away into the traffic again, but so happy for my goodies. Shall I wait and wrap them up? Or reverently read all the directions until I can start one or two??? Let me know what you think!!!
Will post a few photos tomorrow.
