While hundreds camp out to be first in line on Black Friday for whatever the season’s ‘must have’ item is, I’m not cranking my happy self outta bed for anything but fabric.
JoAnn’s had flannel for $1.49/yd…and I had a 25% coupon off my total. Yep, that’ll get me outta bed!
So, Co Def #2 and my Mom accompanied me, with my assurances that ‘It won’t be bad at all. It was DEAD the last time I went’. Yeah, that ‘last time’ was seven years ago. There was a freakin’ line…at 6 a.m.! No telling what time these women started lining up. Didn’t they have to be at The Gap or Academy? Wasn’t the American Girl Store calling their names? Whaddya doing here for Pete’s sake? Apparently, those less crafty folks were after the $99 Christmas trees. The rest of us were there for the flannel. Do you know people get cranky over cheap flannel, y’all?
Here’s what I got..after I arm-wrestled a little old lady for it. Just kidding ((wink))!
All that flannel for quilt backing. And yes, I bought an entire bolt of the stripe. It was $1.49/yd!!
I did pick up these two patterns and a couple of spools of thread. I know, all that fabric and just TWO spools of thread? Someone scarfed most of the neutral threads, so I had to make do ((shrugs)).
Personally, I had a good time. With the exception of one woman who must’ve flown in on her broom, most ladies were really civilized…chatty, personable, a little exhilirated from all the good deals they’d scored. Me, I was just happy to get cheap flannel. And not shed any blood.
Happy quilting, y’all!
