Christmas Michaels Haul
I had a Michaels Gift card burning a hole in my pocket since christmas. So when I saw the circular last thursday of all the items on sale this coming sunday including a 20percent off entire purchase, I had the list I made in hand and arrived 30 minutes before the sale to beat the rush. There really wasn’t a rush but that was the excuse i made to myself and my hubby to get there before the 1pm sale!
Here is what I got today:
2 rattan wire baskets, 2 pillow forms, 4 white photo boxes for storage, 2 small vial containers, 2 large vial containers, 2 wool ease yarn, 1 vanna white yarn, 6 caron simply soft yarn, 2 red heart soft yarn, 2 gold split rings, 1 pack of basting pins, 1 pack of doll needles (for decatur knot)
I think i’ll post a before and after using these bead storage vials (small and they had large) to show how well they work at least for me.
I did some searches to get ideas for crochet projects (i’m not a knitter…yet) and got these two skiens. One for a Cowl, and another for a scarf.
The gold split rings are kinda small, but match better the clasps I bought for the fabric keychains i’m intending on making for yard sale this year. I realized i’ll probably need more basting pins, so picked up another pack while I was there and got some of these doll needles per the instructions to do the decatur knot on my antoinette labyrinth quilt i’m working on.
The 2 pillow forms are for my sister who I made the rag quilt for. I have some homespun left over so for her birthday she asked if I could make pillows to match! I’m happy to oblige 🙂 The 2 rattan (i think that is what they are) baskets are for my rec room. The 4 white boxes match others that I had bought before and were buy one get one free.
Here was the main reason I went to Michaels. I wanted to get some yarn that would match the pillows that came with my couch for a crochet throw I’ve decided to make.
Here is a link to the tutorial for the vertical crochet throw I’m going to make.
I think they all match pretty well. I scanned the pillow before I left, and printed it out to take to the store with me 🙂
I want to say that this is all I’m going to buy as far as projects for a while. I have plenty of projects to keep me busy and blogging about for many months. We’ll see how that goes. I’m determined…but realistic . 😛
Thanks for reading!
