I’ve been waiting very impatiently for over a week to work on both my quilt and my big brown blanket. If you remember I debated for a long time over whether or not to buy more yarn for the big brown blanket (I’m very unimaginative when it comes to naming inanimate objects), the problem was the yarn was no longer on sale and I didn’t want to spent over $20 (and the shipping costs) for more yarn. So I waited and waited and then finally there was another sale at Joanns and I managed to get the wool at 40% off which was great but shipping was still $6….boo.
But I also had to but my quilting on hold because I didn’t have any pins to hold the front back and insides of the quilt together while I sewed them – and although I do think I’ll follow the suggestion to use the basting spray method in the future I saw quilting safety pins 50% at the same time as the yarn so I snagged them both for the same shipping cost.
So I’m delighted that I was still able to save money but even more delighted that I get to sew and knit up a storm again…..I didn’t mention because but I’m on a bit of a deadline for the quilt because it’s a gift but I think I’ll get it finished in time (5 weeks left).
