Day Trip

Hello Friends.
This morning the rain ended just as Myra (Gr8dame's Place) and I headed down the road to the Stitch & Frame shop in Rock Hill, SC.




Here is a pic of me and Zippy that Myra snapped. The day turned clear and beautiful.
The shop was great. There were lots of tempting things. A Schoolgirl's Work from BBD was on my list so I picked that up.



I also picked up a few Lizzie Kate charts.



After that we rode over to Mary Jo's in Gastonia. There wasn't anything that either of us were searching for but it was fun to look.
Next stop was at McAlister's Deli for some sandwiches.

The next stop was supposed to be Trader Joe's but we made a little detour to Ikea. I kind of wanted to see their holiday stuff and to get some tea lights. It was packed so Myra and I did a quick run thru the housewares and home dec areas. And look what we found!



These are paper napkins. They had different colors. I think that they will be great for EGA.
After Ikea we headed to Trader Joe's. I haven't been in a couple of months so I did some stocking up. Myra and I both brought our coolers. After TJs we headed home. It was a fun day. Myra and I caught up on everything from our stitching to our holiday plans.
I got home by 5:30. Rich and I had a nice dinner and we are now watching Hocus Pocus. I love this movie. Our Binx is named after the Binx in this movie.

That is about it from here. I am off to stitch!
