Mrs. O'Crab does Retail Therapy

Cheering self up this morning...I was off to Guild Sit and Sew...Half way through it, I realized that I had left the 8 crucial yellow charms at home.   I was so hoping to get a head start on Jenny's chemo quilt.  I got so crabby at myself, that I left after lunch.
 The quick disappearing nine patch is not so quick when it is out of whack..just like me....
 Whining to self on the way home in the pouring rain, I spied Tuesday Morning...Perfect to self medicate with browsing or more...:)   I came upon this three pack of a diaper material.  It is a great waterproof fabric that I will challenge myself to use in a different way...since I do not make diapers....$3.99 for 3 fat quarters.
 A 7 piece fat quarter pack for $9.99... a farm scene...I could not pass up.  In my mood, it seemed that I could not pass up much.!!
 Velcro is expensive without a coupon...Here for 99 cents a Velcro in different colors...again, the diaper department...who would guess????
 I ruler that I did not need, but could not say no to because it was totally cheap at $1.99.
 Interesting elastic in bright colors.
 A random ruler that I have never seen before, called my name.
 And, a broom for Lynsey.  At age four, she can start to earn her own quarters by sweeping the kitchen floor...By putting all the Grans to work, soon I can just sew away all day long.
Just sharing...  And I know that tomorrow will be a much better day!!!

Well its Sunday and I hope things are going along better for you today! I hadn't realized you could find sewing/quilting things at Tuesday Morning. We had one near us but has since closed.

Ah, you're too hard on yourself. But I'm glad some bargains helped.
