I AM SEEING DRAGONS!!

I did these Saturday!!! Don’t you just love them?

Every Saturday morning my husband wakes me up and ask, “Are you ready to Go”……I am half asleep but I am

thinking…..do I look like I am ready to go? So I jump out of bed and off we go to…..(well…not until I shower and fix myself up some…

the older one gets, the harder it is to get up and go).

JOANN’s

Now I am not a morning person, and I do not like to be woke up but if I know that it is to JoAnn’s we go…..you bet I am going to

hop out of the bed with a smile on my face. I think that is why he does it. After JoAnn’s we get a Route 44 Diet Cherry

Limeade. Oh boy!!! It just doesn’t get much better than that.

So….yesterday he asked…..you want to go to JoAnn’s in the morning? I am thinking……has this man lost it. We just went Saturday and he knows that

I can not go into JoAnn’s and not spend. To top it off, the man likes to go in with me. I prefer he stay in the car, I feel a lot more comfortable about

spending when he is not around (so you see me smiling).

I must be sick because I declined…..so he is out racking the leaves (maybe that is why he wanted to go, to put off this task)?


I hope you all had a wonderful New Year's Day.......I am sure you are like me and have tons of plans, tons of UFO's and of course tons of time....(okay....wish you had tons of time). Least ways it will be another fun year of sharing!!!

Do you still go to the one South of you or have you started going to the one North of you? That's the one I go to and would gladly meet you there any Sat. :). I was thinking about going to a quilt store or two in Manassas today just to see what they were like (never been). Feeling adventurous?

LOL.... at least he asked :o)

And the dragons are lovely.... makes me wish I hadn't sold my embroidery machine.

Your dragons are adorable!! Love the colors you chose.

Gene Black said...

Now Barb, that man encourages you to buy what you want to create with.. You should be glad he goes in with you!
I have to admit I have actually declined a trip or two to the fabric store.
Yes, I have lots of plans and ideas for the new year.

Oops, scratch that. They are closed today. Still, how does your week look? One is changing owners so the website says there are inventory reduction sales.

Your dragons are adorable! Soon our business associates in China and Taiwan will be celebrating the Year of the Dragon! You added a chuckle to my morning with your tales of "should I go" or "should I not go".... Heehee! Mr. Snoodles usually stays away when I am headed there!

I love those dragons. With this being the year of the dragon, I NEED one. Notice I didn't say want....It just wasn't very nice of you to post all those darned cute dragons! ~lol~

They look great Barb. Looks like you have got the hang of using your embroidery machine. What will you be using the dragons for?

Did you do the ME Dragons? They are so cute.

I haven't had a Cherry Coke in ages. How special that you and your DH go to JoAnns together and make a wonderful day of it.
