Fell so hard off the wagon I think I broke something

I was doing so well, and then I fell off. I blame the cats and dogs, I must have tripped over them.

I keep my shopping cart fairly full at my LNS. The cats advised me that, since I am the most awesome mother EVER, I could get Shores of Hawks Run Hollow for Valentines Day. And it was cheaper at the ONS than I could get elsewhere, so when I put it in the shopping cart, well, I had to buy everything else, because it was all in there and I am too lazy to remove it. But I did make sure I only bought what I really really thought I could stitch. It was still a lot.

And the dogs had decided I need the rest of the dogs and cats from Fire Wing Designs. So I had to buy those this morning--can't shop before Valentines Day! I don't know what I'll stitch them on, that is something we'll decide later.

And then I went on E-bay, but I am not going to kick myself over that. I got a great Roger reinardy kit of horses in the surf for half the price other sellers were charging, and Sporting Masters' Secretariat. I have wanted that forever. And of course that led to a visit to Needlecraft Corner, where I got the new Lizzie Kate LE kit from Nashville and the Quaker turtles. They were actually a really good deal. Everything but scissors for $30 US. Can't beat that! I have scissors, why pay extra for another pair. I like my Dovos--I better, for $40.

So that is all the purchasing I plan to be doing anytime soon. I would like to get the turtles done and made up. Those are adorable.

BTW, Happy Valentine's Day, ladies.

Well, if you're going to go down, you might as well go down with a great, big, huge BANG!!!! No sense in falling off the wagon if you can't do it in style. Besides. It's not you. It's the little furry ones. Yeah. The furry ones. Blame them. :-)

ROFL! You REALLY hit hard girl! That's awesome though and I'm glad that the furry kids think you deserve new stash ;o)

Happy Valentine's Day Rachel!

I do my thing and you do yours. I am not in this world to live up to your expectations, and you are not in this world to live up to mine. You are you and I am I, and if by chance we find each other, then it is beautiful. If not, it can’t be helped--Frederick Perls
