Still trying to stay warm in Minnesota...our weather made the national news this morning!
On Friday (the day before the snow came!) I had the opportunity to spend the afternoon with Joan and one of our blogging friends, Pam. Pam doesn't have a blog, but many of you know her because she probably has visited your blog and left a comment. Joan and I met Pam in Tulsa at the Silver Needle retreat and we agreed to meet up at Stitchville next time Pam was in town. It just so happened that this was the weekend - Pam and her non-stitching sister, Cheryl drove up for shopping and stashing at the Mall of America and Stitchville!
Pam is so sweet - she gifted Joan and I with some cotton knit washcloths. And they were packaged so nice! Pam's birthday is next Tuesday, and I gave her a package of Minnesota wild rice, some Pearson's Salted Nut Rolls (made in Minnestoa), and a Hardanger ornament for her tree. We had lunch at Old Chicago and then spent a significant amount of time stashing at Stitchville.
Here' a picture of the three of us (L to r: Joan, Pam, Cathy):
I made some purchases (can't go to Stitchville and not buy something!). The new LK Winter fob kit and the Blue House Primer from With My Needle:
And look what I found in the clearance bins! BOAF My Betrothed (half price), another old BOAF charf (50 cents!) and M Designs Sampler Girls (half price). You can't imagine how excited I was to find those BOAF charts!
We had a great time on Friday! Well, I need to get moving - the boutique sale today opens up at 9am and I need to be there to help my mom set things up!
