Sweet Home....quite the happening place

Cindi and I had planned to go to Mcdonough but with a forecast of ichy weather, we changed our minds. I got up and decided it was time to tackle(finish) the Thimbles project from a couple of months ago. It was to the sew the rows together stage. The next step was the setting triangles. I managed to screw that up-I have enough fabric to make it right but I didn't want to chance another mistake. I called out to Sweet Home about a book. Something to be said about caller ID. Mike answers the phone with: "Girl,you need to get out here." He also knows who it is if I call from work. This is either very good marketing or I spend way too much time and money there! But I obeyed and got in the car and drove to Sweet Home. It was like old home week. I swear half of Thimbles was there or had already gone. Pat was upstairs teaching. Bad Melisa Evil Temptress was disguised as a witch. Hopefully Pat will post her picture. "Renuzit" came in yesterday and was flying out the door. Sarah was hooked on cheddar and had a pile going. Cindi arrived (I should have called her but she was supposed to be sewing) she did some damage as well. I need to take a picture of my purchases. Will do it later.

Then I drove over to Duluth to visit with Alice and her parents. Laurie came with the "good" camera and took lots of pictures. We dressed Alice in her Halloween costume. Mostly she slept through Halloween. I hope Laurie will post some new pix or fix it so I can. Came home and watched TV in the dark as usual on Halloween.

You must have gotten there right after Brenda and I left. What book were you searching for? Wasn't it fun at the shop?
