I go S-H-O-P-P-I-N-G!
Yesterday, Mr. Painted Quilt, Mac and I headed across the province to the pretty town of Mahone Bay, Nova Scotia. Mahone Bay is your typical quintessential and picturesque tourist destination. Although I am now a resident, I still consider myself a tourist here because at times I have to pinch myself when I witness the beauty that surrounds me. However, we travelled the 90 or so miles with a purpose in mind.
I N-E-E-D-E-D some supplies!
I am in the final stages of my finishing my first hooked rug and my local shop, Moose River Rug Hooking Studio does not as yet carry the cording that I need to finish the edging.
As you can see, I am sooooooo close. I just have the border, two remaining windows and the chimney left to hook and then I’m ready to complete the mat. Well, what’s a gal to do? I N-E-E-D-E-D the necessary supplies.
Mahone Bay has two rug hooking shops…Encompassing Designs and Spruce Top (no website)…so why not kill two
shops birds with one stone? It’s not like the shops are around the corner…right?
By coincidence, Encompassing Designs was having a Valentine Day Sale with 10 – 30% off most supplies. What’s a gal to do…especially with all the stress I’ve been under lately…right?
You would do the same…right?
Well, along with the cording that I absolutely needed, I also bought some gorgeous over dyed wool that I C-O-U-L-D-N’T live without.
The picture does not do the colors justice. They are amazing!
So today my stress level is reading ‘normal’. It’s amazing what a little retail therapy can do, huh? *wink*
