Here's what I learned..... :-)

 For those of us that took advantage of the wonderful pattern sales this month (Simplicity, McCalls, & even more recently, Butterick). I know many of you have been taking advantage of these deals for years--this year was my first. :-).

When I went to JoAnn's, I had already researched my patterns, had a list. However, I got there mid-week and found a few empty drawers.

At first, I gave in and kept it moving with my list :-). However, something told me to keep looking in all drawers!

I discovered that (for whatever reasons), patterns were shifted, moved in different drawers, etc.

LESSON LEARNED: Keep pressing through those drawers even if they're empty. You never know IF your pattern is gonna be in the next drawer! :-).

Until next time, keep it sewing!  -JC

Catchin up on "the catch" :-)

Hey there! I've had these pics in my phone since this past Wednesday (8/14). Since many of my blogging and sewing buddies are still raving over the TONS of dollars they saved at the JoAnn's sale, it's my turn--better late than never! LOL. Here we go:

It tried to get cloudy on us--what a beautiful site: I take NO credit!
 Sorry-still trying to figure it out; even the rotate feature on the desktop didn't work!
 Here's my catch: 70 cents a pattern?!

My Mama Told Me........ :-)

YOU BETTER SHOP AROUND! And we did just that. TENDER MEMORIES. :-). Me and Mom drove to Hancock's Saturday. I got a really good deal on notions: curve ruler, thread. She even picked up a few items. 

 50% off NOTIONS!

 Mom waiting in line. :-)
 My basket....and my foot  :-)
Mom checking out! Even she couldn't pass up the deal!

Just couldn't pass it up

If you're on face book and/or other social networks, you probably couldn't help but to notice the sales that Hancock's AND JoAnns are having. Well, I went to Hancock's after work yesterday (Friday) and took advantage of the McCall pattern sale.

Went back today because they had 50% off NOTIONS. I never thought I would need or have use of (let alone even heard of LOL)-a curve ruler. However, after seeing all the nice mermaid maxi's and skirts that everyone's doing, I HAD TO go back!!

OH WELL, I'm jumping ahead. Tune back in tomorrow for more on what we "took away." :-)

Until next time, Happy Sewing!
