An Unexpected Adventure

I did not set out today to buy more supplies, it really was not my objective to come home with bags of new yarn and beads!

It started out harmless, I just thought I would stop in the local bead shop and take a look around. Maybe find a little inspiration, pick up a few spacer beads that I could use....but did not really need. Well, I know its not just me, I get in there and everything is so enticing! And the prices were great! I ended up leaving with quite a few hemitie beads, some fancy square beads, and 5 hanks of spacers. ooooppppssss! I am sure I will find lots of great uses for them though.

Then, as if I needed to I mentioned to the clerk that I had not been to the new yarn shop that I knew was near by, but did not know where exactly. Of course she told me where it was I had to go!

My first reaction was ....well how can I say this nicely? Not very impressed. As I was about to leave I noticed in the corner by the check out a little bin that said SALE. Now your talking my language! I started slow, only going to by 2 or 3, well, maybe 4. Ok, I ended up with a lot! It was fun, I cant wait to dig in and create! I found some great new treasures today!

10 Reasons to Buy Lots of Yarn

I just came across this and it soooooo perfectly fits my way of thinking!

10 Reasons to Buy Lots of Yarn
1. It insulates the cupboard where it is kept.
2. It keeps the economy moving. It is my patriotic duty to support wool
farmers, textile mills, and yarn shops.
3. It is less expensive and more fun than psychiatric care.
4. I'm participating in a contest - the one who dies with the most yarn
5. It keeps without refrigeration, you don't have to cook it to enjoy
it, you never have to feed it, change it, wipe its nose or walk it.
6. Because I'm worth it.
7. Like dust, it's good for protecting previously unprotected spaces in
the house, like the ironing board, the laundry basket, the dining room
8. It's not immoral, illegal or fattening. It calms the nerves,
ratifies the soul, and makes me feel good.
9. Because it is on sale. Because that is such a beautiful colour... I've never seen it
before... I must have it.
10. Buy it now, before your husband retires and goes with you on all your
shopping expeditions.
