WOW! Am I glad to be back. We left the 28th of October for Ct. and it took us two days. I told my brother I wasn't going to do this trip in one day - it just takes to much out of me. I spent three week in Granby taking care of my two nieces. OMG are they the sweetest.
There is a great scrapbooking store called Three Scrappy Ladies in Canton Ct. which is about 15 minutes from my brothers, I found the 8.5 x 11 scrapbook I need for my sons play that I'm doing. Michael's also had a 50% coupon and I picked up the Chatterbox 12 x 12 album kit. That was definitely a great deal.
I also met my a friend from college (I was a non-traditional student and so was she) in NH. I didn't realize how close she was to my brother - 2 hours. She had a Michael's that just opened and they were having a grand opening so we did some damage in there. I picked up the Slab for 7 dollars, I couldn't believe it.
There are also three great yarn shops; one in Granby and two in Avon. Naturally I had to pick up yarn. I mostly bought sock yarn, but in Marji's in Granby I also bought some wool and made a sampler scarf.
My chuch has a silent auction every year and this year I am going to donate a scarf and a pair of socks.
The sock on the left I started and finished in Ct. The pair on the left I had started and I finished them while in Ct.
I will try to get a better picture of the scarf.
I didn't do any scrapbooking while there, but I did take lots of pictures.
Oh well more tomorrow.
Have a great day!
