Look What I Got...

Well...why is it that I cannot go into a store
and come out with only the one thing I went in to buy?!!
I went into JoAnn's to get one crochet hook
and...let's see...
Two books, two crochet hooks & one pkg of chochet labels later...

Okay...I don't get out much so when I do...
I have to make up for it!
I used to really luuuvvvv shopping!
In the recent years I really dislike it, go figure! are my goodies!

I hadn't bought a cross stitch magazine in several years
and it had some really cute ideas!
Wanted to check out new ideas and see what's out
there these days...

I came across this book and had to have it!
I had seen someone suggest this book and after
thumbing thru it, I can see why!
It has brought emboidery to the current century!
I will let you know just what cute things it has
once I get a chance to really look thru it!
I can already see some projects I would luv to try!

My hooks and labels!
I had seen these cute labels in my crochet and yarn
magazines and really luved them so I was
really excited when I saw them hanging on wall!
I had to have a package!

And finally...what I went to the store for...
I needed a size "L" crochet hook to try my Bernat project.
Hopefully this will work for my gauge swatch! 
The one on the left is a Susan Bates Crystalite hook
which is usually one of my favorite styles.
On the left is a Susan Bates with a Bamboo handle.
It is really pretty and wondered how it would handle.
So of course I had to buy it!


Well, I guess the only way to see if it's the right sized hook
is to quit blogging and get to crocheting!

Wish me luck!
