More projects!

I just couldn't help myself. Yesterday I went shopping for a new iron and went to the craft store (cuz I had a 50% off coupon) but they had nothing in stock! But they had their clearance fabrics 50% off so I got these two and figured i'll make my own shopping bags. (John broke the handle on one of ours while we were out getting groceries yesterday too)
Also back when I was trying to find a pattern for my purse I went looking through all the pattern books at the store. And I found this one
I thought it would work pretty good but it was $18. Which I think is just a bit too much for a pattern!!! But guess what... they had a sale! LOL it was only 99 cents!! I should of went through more of the pattern book and bought more patterns they were all that price. So I got the fabric on sale and the pattern on sale.... but I still have a 50% off coupon.... hmmmmm what to else should I buy. Of course I went in the stitching section and found this.
I thought she was so pretty. And I usually don't buy kits. But at half off this was a really decent buy.

Sadly I still really haven't started any projects. I need to get my butt off the computer and start something! I really should start that Greek one for John's Uncle. Oh I did get my container for the TU SAL I promise i'll have stuff in it by the 14th so I can get a picture of it!!!

Wow, getting stuff for 99 cents instead of $18 this is some deal!!! Lol, I've never seen such a sale here!
The kit is gorgeous, I've seen this model finished and it was really beautiful

Ah, were you at Jo-Ann's? I love the 50 percent off cross stitch kit deals, even if the selection can be small sometimes. The Gold Collection stuff they have is an excellent deal, though, and so pretty when it's stitched!

What great deals! Nothing like that around here. The best Michaels does is 40% off one item. *sigh* and there really isn't much selection. I'm so envious of folks in the States with so many craft stores!
