Last Friday on my way home from work I stopped at JoAnn's to pick up a couple DMC threads for my Harvest Angel. I was running low and feared there wouldn't be enough of the 2 main colors. The 3777 was easily found, hooray! The 977 (or 779 or whatever) was not -- GASP! There wasn't even a slot for that color! I double checked, figured I was remembering the wrong number, walked back out to the car (because I left the slip with the numbers on it out there and since it was such a nice day, parked a good distance away from the store's entry), grabbed said paper and returned to the store. Unfortunately, I had remembered the number correctly and there was no such number there. I purchased the 3777 and in a state of mild panic, rushed home, called my LNS owner (which is not on my way home but rather a 40 min. drive away) and was told not to panic. She carries that particular thread and has lots in stock -- horray! A happy ending!
Even though I was very busy over the weekend doing doggie stuff and mowing grass, I did manage to squeeze a little stitching into my schedule:
Good news -- Stormy is feeling much better. He's not 100% and is still on R&R but he's getting there.
