Winter Has Arrived and Some Retail Therapy

We cancelled plans and stayed at home Friday because of icy conditions.  It never warmed up enough for the ice in our rain chain to melt. 


Originally I was going to join an outing with friends to visit the grand opening of an almost local quilt store, but none of us wanted to brave the road conditions.  Fortunately, there will be other opportunities since it is relatively close.



Not all was lost, however, as I already had done some retail therapy earlier in the week.  I piggy-backed a trip to two craft stores when hubby had an appointment in the “Big City.”  I didn’t purchase any fabric, but here is the loot I came home with.  Gotta love those 40 and 50% off coupons.

What a cool rain chain! But lookit that ICE! Oh my... glad you stayed home... the almost LQS will be there next week when the ice is gone.

Oh those 40% & 50% off coupons are the best! A girl can have some serious fun with those...

Ice is nothing to play around with. I'm glad you stayed home. We don't have any snow or ice but it was 5 degrees this morning.

Ooooooo, it looks cold in the Hill Country. We're back in El Paso though and it's cold here too. What big city did you go to? San Antonio? Notions are always welcome and a big plus.
