Hump Day already? And important shop news..

Wow, Wednesday already? Really?  Seriously?  Amazing.   After a funfilled and busy weekend, I met up with Joanne on Monday at the Hayloft Fabric store in Morgantown Pa. What fun! I had a gift certificate from Joanne that was from my Birthday last year.  Guess I'm still celebrating LOL.  What fun!  You can seriously spend hours in there, but I kind of knew what I wanted. I will be making some pillows of punch needle and needed some backings.  These are the ones I picked out. The bold print is definitely bold, but I was drawn to the colors. Not sure what i'll do with that one yet.

From the Hayloft, Joanne took me to Old Peddler Wools that is going out of business.  I was able to pick up some that I knew Linda didn't have at Grantstreet.  I did tell her about them though, and she will be carrying them shortly.  She ordered them yesterday.  When I got home, I had to see how a couple of them overdyed.  Loved the results.  The picture is a little off. It's a bit more deeper than this. But very pleased.

Joanne did all the driving (thanks again Joanne) and took me to quite a few places.  One thrift store used to be a furniture store. Oh how funny.  Looked like a department store when you walked in. Everything so organized lol.  We also stopped at Pizza Hut for lunch. Yum, haven't had pizza in quite a while.. been watching what I eat. Joanne has a picture on her blog of me with an outfit that we saw in an antique store. Too darn funny. I swear this girl is going to keep me in stitches with what she finds for me to wear to my Son's wedding lol.  She's really starting to SCARE me lol.  We really had a good time, and I had a nice drive home. Hardly any traffic at all. 

Ok, about the announcement for Grant Street Woolworks.   I wanted to post it today (a thought from Joanne..thanks!) because Next week (July 25th-29th) the shop will be closed.  Linda will be away and she is shutting it down.  Soooo, if you are in need of any wool, backing, patterns, dyes, etc., stop on in today or come to the hook in tomorrow and pick it up.  You'll be set then to sit in doors next week for the heat wave and you can hook till your hearts content.  That's what I plan on doing :).  Sure hoping it rains though, we certainly need it.  Yet another reason to stay indoors!

Hope everyone is finding relief from this heat. I so worry about the elders who have no air conditioning,  and the animals that I see wandering around outside.  It has to come to an end soon... I'm hoping!
Although every year at the Shippensburg Fair, we always get storms that week.  So next week we might get some rain!!

Have a wonderful weekend everyone, and I hope to see some of you tomorrow!!
