Spent a couple of days down in the Los Angeles area, specifically Rancho Cucamonga. I had a wonderful visit with my friend and his family. I am sort of a mom figure...I've known him since he was 17...so he is like one of my own. He is a good dad, a good husband. I am very proud of him.
Of course, after I finished checking my hotel's address, it was on to find any yarn, cross stitch, or fabric shops in the area. I hit the jackpot!!
Well, well, well. Yarn and cross stitch. Okay... OH. MY. GOODNESS. This place was packed full of surprises. Much more than I expected and the couple that own the shop were very nice. Oh, and since it is my birthday month, 20% off. LOL I was happy to show my driver's license.
I showed restraint. Only four patterns and two skeins of yarn. Really. LOL Somehow I picked all autumn-type patterns. I love pumpkins and blackbirds...
Then on to the next shop.
This was a different type of shop. Airy and fun...
And on the back wall....somewhat inappropriate....but SO funny!! LOL
I found some pink mixed, bumpy, lumpy variegated skeins. I figured I could add them into different projects for eye-appeal. The other yarn is merino/alpaca blends. Pretty and squishy!! LOL
While I wasn't visiting or shopping, I worked on my projects. Moving fast on my teal scarf.
Here's my blankie, now on my third skein. Oh, more teal...LOL
I've still got about two and a half weeks left of vacation. Hubby wants to do something this weekend. I am willing to go just about anywhere since I've already got my yarn and cross stitch fix. LOL
Wishing each of you a wonderful day. Be kind to one another.
