I'll be doing a little black friday shopping today ~
need some supplies to finish up a couple of things for the
Christmas Open House which is only almost a week away!
my first stop:
Fabric Shopping ~
|If I can't find what I need in my overflowing boxes, bins and shelves of fabrics...|
just. don't. need. it.
next stop ~
Magazines and Books:
|every category you could possibly think of ~|
home decor, quilting, painting, drawing....this list is endless.
I could use some sewing notions too...
|threads, buttons, ribbons & rug hooks|
all at my disposal!
I need some stuffing too.
|there are fabric scraps, old cotton batting from raggedy quilts, |
and of course, baskets of sawdust.
and lets not forget to hunt for some antiques ~
this section offers pin keeps, scissors and such ...
lots & lots of 'stuff' to be found here ~
where am I shopping today?
why, my own sewing room, if you haven't guessed by now....
no, I won't be supporting any big-name stores today.
no malls or crowds.
no having to spend my hard earned money
on the ridiculous price of gasoline to burn it up waiting in traffic ~
I'll recycle yet again and feel so good about doing that...
I'll visit my fields and woods to gather finds,
and will rely on my own farm for inspiration for creating gift for my friends & family.
Use it up,
Wear it out,
Make it do ~
or Do without.
...that's my black friday motto!
* Blessed be *
