Tatting Thread SALE!

I was at Joann Fabrics yesterday and couldn't believe my eyes! They now carry Lizbeth Tatting Thread! One of the very top of the line threads out there - at Joann Fabrics! So I snagged myself several balls for a few reasons:

-I am a tatting fiend, and thread hoarding is a part of the sickness.

-Lizbeth threads are some of the very best out there - their variegated shades are still
hand dyed.

-They were all ON SALE!!! I normally would pay $4/ball + s&H. Joann had them for $2.99, no s&H.

Yeah, I know this makes me even more of a fiber geek than I already was, but...I have Lizbeth thread and YOU don't! (But you could, if you hurry to Joann Fabrics - I
think I left a few!)

Birthday loot!

My daughter and son in law gave me a gift certificate to Yarn Market! I snagged me some Noro Kureyon, color #240, "Pinks & Purples". Here it is in the box:

And here's a closeup of 2 of the skeins:

And here's the naughty kitty who thinks she's cuter than any old yarn:

What a couple of great kids - thanks, guys!
