wELL, The octopus is on the machine right now...just waiting for me to come and play but that is for another day.
I did go to JoAnn's twice!!
Got the backing fabric. Thought I had enough batting....got home, laid everything out....and ....yep...you guessed it not enough batting.
The lady at JoAnn's told me (cause I asked when I was in there that morning) if the coupons I had would go towards batting....she said no. I did not want to pay full price for batting (cheap...cheap...cheap....)
But when Elizabeth from Such a Sew and Sew emailed me her coupon ..... I gave it more thought...called the store, read the coupon and well....you know the rest of the story. Husband and I hop in the car and head to JoAnn's again. Whohooooooo....got ten more yards.... Doing the happy dance. My husband asked how much I saved....I told him 59.00 and he was doing the happy dance. That car was bouncing all the way home...HA!!!
By that time....I had to put aside the Octopus and go on to other things. I had a young lady move up to the older class at church and so I wanted to give her this tote. I am making one for all the new girls coming in and infact, the girls in my class will help me make them.....so I got this done.
I have not heard of anyone using their Go cutter to teach a Sunday School Class but now I have.
I dont teach, I just help organize activities and guide...but got a call this morning from the Teacher and well...she is sick.
Thought, how can I get these gals attention? My go cutter was sitting there, some bright cardboard (if it can cut capri sun containers, it can cut cardboard) then I can write key ideas on them for the chalkboard....and well....I teach in about two hours. Hopefully, they will enjoy the class.
