I don't get many Christmas presents each year. This year, my husband had no clue what to get me (despite dropping a few zillion hints) so he got me a gift certificate to Joann's. As I don't really need anything there I put off going until today. I was armed with a whole bunch of coupons and a list of a few color ideas.
Christmas fabrics were 70% off...holy cow, I got 7 half yards. The 5 Easter fabrics were 30% off and I had 50% off coupons for the remaining 4, not on sale fabrics. I also purchased a picture puzzle at a greatly reduced price (a gift for a friend) and a few small scrapbooking items. After all was said and done, I had a 25% coupon, off the entire purchase. The whole thing came to around $60 and that is the best gift yet.

I love fabric. I miss all the quilt stores that used to be around. I think they've mostly gone away, but a few remain. I may have to find one and go one of these days. I want to try getting back into quilting again.

Can't wait to see what you make with these!

A Joann gift certificate would work for me. You did good on your shopping trip
