This is day 3 of our holiday and i've found the local LNS already thanks to Wendy and Dani! Thank-you ladies! What a novelty - there are no shops like this anywhere near where we live. I just loved it. All those charts in one place. Great! It was called Golden Threads Imports Inc and was actually within walking distance of the house we're staying at. We've stayed here loads of times and never known this shop was there, even my SIL hadn't heard of it. So i've bought stash already and maybe i'll go back again another day! I managed to get
Mirabilia - "The Feather Fairy" (something of my wish list) and i also picked up
Lizzie kate - Friendship II
Elizabeth's Designs - Special Stitcher
I was disapointed there was no Carriage House Samplings as i have a longing to buy Village of Hawk Run Hollow. There were only 2 LHN charts in the shop as well which was also disappointing but i have spent enough for now anyway! I went to Michaels and picked up a load of DMC so cheaply. The price difference is unbelieveable! I paid the same in cents that i pay in pence in the UK! Bargain!
We made it over here okay after a loonnng journey. Our flight appeared to be on time but then we sat on the plane for 2 hours before take off!!! There was some problem with the computer systems at air traffic control and no flights were able to fly over the Atlantic for a period of time. This meant that they had to change flight plan and we ended up going over the Shetland isles and then over Greenland etc and right over the far north of Canada. It was cool! We could see icebergs in the water all the way and loads of snow. The views were amazing. It meant the flight was a bit longer (8 hours) so we ended up on the plane for 10 hours which was very boring. They only showed one movie as well.
So we are having a good time so far seeing all our friends and family again and getting to know our 3 month old nephew! The weather's great too which is always a bonus. Im off to sit in the garden now, i love holidays :)
