Well when I looked out of the window it looked a bit overcast and drizzly, so I convinced Ricky that we REALLY should go SHOPPING.

So off we went to Gurnee Mills, THANKS (VICKY, CAPTURE THE MAGIC) got some bits, bobs and bargains there, oh and had some JAMBA JUICE, also recommnded by Vicky.

From there we went to Michaels ( a bit like Hobby Craft) a SUPER TARGET and........ a HOBBY LOBBY. in all the years I've been coming to the US and all the States I've visited, approx 14 I've never found a HOBBY LOBBY, so I was well chuffed. again, thanks Vicky.
So we park the car and get a photo (see below) I have to hold myself back from running for two reasons really, one this body was not designed to run and two I needed to keep a bit of dignity if only for Ricky's sake. Get to the door and..... NO it wasn't closed, I know of you were thinking that ! BUT we only had 30 minutes before it did close !!!!! Managed to get a book for MAGGIE and not much else really, but HEY HO at leas…

Not long now....

....until normality returns to the shop and you get the fabby Marion back!

On Sunday I ran my first of two full classes... I hope you all enjoyed them ;) I cannot wait to see the different LO ideas Jayne comes up with! And to see them all with piccies in too. Thank you for being such wonderful ladies and bearing with my mad moments of panic as we sped through two classes full of stitching, cutting and ribbon. I think everyones jacobs ladders worked, didn't they??

I think we have spaces for Saturday still for Nina's two beautiful LO's 'All torn up' and 'Nature's Beauty'... I just need the pens for the cricut now! They are up in the shop so pop in and have a peek, see if you fancy them.
