Saturday afternoon, I started working on a sample for the shop. It is a small Gingerbread Man quilt. I'm only making it with 12 blocks. I put small rick rack on the legs and arms but didn't get enough. The package had 4 yards in it and it was the last package at Joann's. I thought for sure it would be enough but I lacked about 12 inches having enough for all 12. It was late Saturday night and I knew everything was closed except Walmart, so off to town I headed. Wouldn't you know it, (I am not a very lucky person and everyday I am reminded of this) my Walmart did away with the fabric and notions last week. They don't even have a spool of thread! They still have a few crafts but not much. I had heard that Walmart was doing this but it hadn't effected me. I never go to Walmart for fabric or anything like this except for emergencies. (I guess that's why they are doing away with their fabrics and sewing section!) I know that will help the fabric stores but you're not thinking about that at 11:00 o'clock at night and wanting to finish a project!) I had to wait until yesterday to go to another Joann's to get rick rack. I can now finish my Gingerbread Man and put the last 3 together for this project. I will be doing that tonight when I go home along with cutting out some blocks for another exchange. OMG, I love sewing and quilting, I just wish I had more time to do it. I'll post a picture of this too later. Til next time....
