10 Things

Shimelle and some of her friends have a little 10 Things project that they do on the 10th of the month so I thought I'd join in this time around.  My collection is built around today's short - but productive - shopping trip.

1.  Fabricland had a 50% off sale on quilt batting, notions, flannel and fabrics - basically everything in the store.  Many quilting cottons were 60% off!  Let's just say that it was a good thing I was only in the store for 90 minutes :)  And I have added to the stash of Halloween, Easter, and quilt fabrics.

2.  The colors and patterns in a fabric store make me very happy.  My new scheme today included grey - lots of beautiful grey.

3.  Nachos + cheese sauce = a yummy favourite snack after missing supper..

4.  Costco has big heavy bags of potting soil for $9.99 each.  It's the best bargain in town.

5.  If you have heavy things to load, Costco offers carry-out service - thankfully.

6.  I scored big time on some fun chocolate treats today.  I am so excited to share them at Easter time.

7.  I gave my winter jacket a break today and just wore a hoodie when I went shopping - it was perfect!

8.  Chapters had a special on today - buy 3 books, get the 4th one free - I wish I'd known before I got to the checkout.

9.  Tomorrow I'm bringing in some apple branches to force so I can have green leaves for Easter :)  All the spring things in the stores inspired me.

10.  And I am off to bed since daylight saving time is arriving in just a few hours - not shopping related but reality!

  1. Our daylight savings is only on the 25th so we have 2 weeks to wait. I LOATHE the clocks going back for winter,and can't wait for them to spring forward! Missy is playing with 10 million little people from her Dad's childhood and adores them all. They are SO much more fun than the new ones!
