The Early Bird Catches the Worm

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 . . .
