Stitching Friends will Understand

Jeremiah needed new glasses so today we went to get them. Luckily the place he gets his glasses is right by Hobby Lobby and we had time to spare while waiting for them to be ready to pick up. Last night I was kitting up the Myrtle Beach Postcard project and I found out I needed DMC 931...
Here is Izzy pointing out the one thread I needed. As you can see though it couldn't come alone. I also got charms galore, cute stitched treasure map bookmark kit that was on sale, trinkets, goodies, several pieces of felt, ribbons, and a pile of other floss. I'm sure my readers will understand. You can't leave things behind or they will cry from being lonely. It was my duty to give them a home. I also was able to find a frame on 50% off sale that I needed for a large poster size photo I want to finally be able to hang up. So I was a happy shopper indeed. Plus....like I said....I needed that thread guys.

By the way we love Jeremiah's new glasses...
They almost match his hair. Plus he said it feels great to be able to see clear again. His old pair was 3 years old this June and they were definitely looking worn. Now to get myself some new ones next. I can tell I need them too.

Jeremiah's glasses suit him,it is great when a new prescription gives you clearer sight :)
You are quite right,if crafting stash is calling you like mad it would be rude not to liberate it ;D

Ha ha we do understand! Why go into the store for one little bitty thing when there is so much more waiting to come home with you?

Glasses are kinda important for seeing but I always put mine off until I just can't anymore. They are so stinking expensive; especially when you need bifocals. Jeremiah looks very handsome in his new glasses. Guess I haven't seen a picture of him for a long time, he looks so much older than I remember in this picture.

I'm sure that I couldn't go out of a Hobby Lobby or Joann's or such craft stores empty-handed. Impossible, lol. And when you need a thread ....

Absolutely, no stash travels alone!
Jeremiah's new glasses look great. I can have a free eye test every 2 years so I always do that even if I don't actually get new glasses.

Nice new glasses and nice new stash too.

Well, obviously all those things just leap into your arms and you can't deny that look they give you. That would be Stash Abandonment and we cannot have that!

Great new glasses. I switch between contacts and glasses and my optometrist was amazed I've had the same pair of contacts for 15 years without a spare (they're the hard ones).

Jeremiah really suits his new glasses. I agree you really can't leave all that great stuff behind.

How sweet of you to make all those goodies happy!
Jeremiah's glasses look great on him!

"It was my duty to give them a home." Haha! What a great argument to use when you've bought perhaps a little more than you should have! I'll have to try that one out next time I purchase stash I don't really need! Jeremiah looks great, too. :)
