Cross Stitch Yard Sale!

Today I went to House of Stitches
for their Annual Midwest Stash Exchange!

It is basically a yard sale with a bunch of booths set up with stitchers who are selling off their old charts, magazines, fabric and other miscellaneous items.

Last year was my first visit and I had such a great time I decided that I would definitely go back this year and today was the day!  I went armed with my list of magazines I needed for different charts, fabric counts with the sizes needed and some charts I wanted to buy.

I got all the magazines I needed - except one ;) 

None of these charts were on my list...
but you know how that goes ;D
 

As for fabric, well these were bigger than I needed
BUT in my world, fabric is NEVER to big!

I was looking for a big piece of purple
though but couldn't find any!

Then my son bought me the cutest pair of scissors!
A PURPLE BUNNY

Left the house this morning with $40 and
came home with $7 still in my pocket!
