New Things!!!!


I have seen slide shows on other people's so I thought I'd try it--we took a day trip to Floyd Virginia which is always beautiful. They have a three-floor fabric shop which is in a huge brick building that was once a school. It was a beautiful day with my good hearted husband, Fred.


Some of the items they have there are extremely less than that other fabric store "Joanxxxxxx's" probably because they buy in bulk. Picked up a few more wire rings to make the pine cone wreaths (for an unbelievable $1.29) I was asked to make a Thanksgiving Wreath for someone and it's my first one. Sorry to bore you with another picture of that but---not that sorry not to post it.




I finally learned that if you want to punch something "more expertly" you should stamp it first and then punch--I was always punching and then stamping--wasted a lot of paper that way. I learn a lot from my Sisterhood of the Blogging Stampers!!
