This year we joined the ranks of all the crazy nuts that wake up before sunrise to "hit the stores" on the day known as Black Friday. I know, you think that we really lost it. Well, actually, we've been crazy for years . . . but not quite this crazy!
The sale that caused all this was Flannel @ $1.29/yd. at JoAnn Fabrics. Ahhhhhh! You all know that wonderful saying, 'the early bird catches the worm', so we were up at 5:00am and at the store by 6:30am. By the time we left at 2:00pm (that did include a lunch break at Panera) we had bought pieces of 94 different flannels!
We're planning a bunch of baby quilts. They're great to have around in case of baby showers and/or unexpected gifts, and we only have one left in our stash from the quilt project. We also got quite a bit of flannel to make assorted nursery things for ourselves, as there were some prints we just couldn't pass up. In the end, all the day's purchases filled four medium-sized Rubbermaid Roughneck bins! Now it's on to Christmas secrets . . .
