Here I am after spending about an hour at the Stitch and Frame shop. It was wonderful to actually go inside and be able to see all the shop models and fondle the linen.
Then we were off to Mary Jo's. I really didn't have anything to buy there but I managed to pick up some needfuls such as sewing machine needles and iron cleaner. We took a break and had a wonderful lunch at McAllister's deli. My Reuben was delicious.
As we were on our way to Trader Joe's we spotted this:
Here is the little lantern I snagged from Ikea along with my goodies from Mary Jo's. I also got a nice bundle of tea lights, some wonderful cross stitch pattern napkins, and some chocolates. :o)
And here is part of the bounty I acquired at Trader Joes. I can't wait to try that Pumpkin Pancake Mix.
Check out this cool vintage look reusable Trader Joes shopping bag. Chris had one similar to this and I knew one was coming home with me too.
I had one more picture of the lovely gift Chris gave me but will save it for my next post.
We didn't solve any of the world's problems today but there is just nothing better than spending time with a friend. Thank you Chris for being the most excellent chauffer and tour guide. :o) I had a wonderful time and hope we can do it again soon.
