I've been waiting since September for this place to open --
You know that uncanny radar that some little kids have when it comes to the Golden Arches? I'm that way about this orange sign. When we do drive by one on our travels it's always too early in the morning, or too late at night, or we're in a hurry to get from Point A to Point B. If by some miracle it is the middle of the afternoon and we've got some extra time on our hands, it's Sunday.
So I'm just a little bit thrilled to have one within 30 miles of the house, in a direction I head at least twice a week. The Albany, Oregon store opened this week and Teenage Daughter and I blissfully drooled our way through almost every single aisle.
I don't know if I was happier to see the yarn selection or the selection of Sizzix quilting dies... or the dollhouse section....or the exact cross-stitch kits that I've been swooning over online...
Despite all of that, I didn't add any yarn or fabric to my stash this week. I brought home a new frame for my embroidery because the cheap round hoop I've been using was driving me nuts and a package of floss in pale colors that will be perfect for the Garden Party Quilt. Teenage Daughter bought a paintbrush for her nail art. We will be back and I'm sure we'll both be adding to our stashes, but for this week it was enough fun to just look.
