Hobby Lobby it is...Tatter's Loot Report!

Well...the girls wanted to do something since Daddy was getting to do I offered up Hobby Lobby and they took me up on it...they are girls after my own heart...

Had to check out the thread, because you never know, they might have some new colors (mostly they never do, but I always have to look anyway)...did you know they are carrying LizBeth size 80 now???  Truely tickled about that...

...oh and these little needle boxes, love them...have had one in a pretty blue with flowers for probably a year and it's perfect for holding a pin for the dreaded untatting that occurs occasionally, needles of different sizes, and a paper clip or two...

So I ended up with some leaf green size 80 thread that was just too pretty to leave for someone else to take home...and a needle box in a pretty pink design...then onto the BEAD section...

I was searching for centre ornaments that might work for tatting...I found a couple.  The second from the left and the farthest right will make excellent centres.  The other two...well, I'm thinking more along the lines of what Lady Picot did with her centres here, absolutely gorgeous. 
Then we ran into Wal*Mart for a couple of things and "happened" to wander down the craft rows there...and I spotted this... is a closer look at those ornaments...see the potential?

I am looking forward to playing with these, tomorrow I hope!!!


  1. I too was super excited when I saw that they carried size 80, and in fun colors too!

    Looks like you all had a productive shopping trip!

  2. You're going to have fun with all that!

  3. I'm jealous of everyone who has a craft store close to them. Most of mine loot comes threw the mail.

    Enjoy your loot. I'm looking forward to seeing what you create w/ your doodads.

  4. I can't wait to see what you come up with especially with those oval doodads!

  5. wow, looks like some jewelry in your future.
    way to go with re-purposing your finds.


Thank you for your comments...they are read and treasured!
