A Beautiful Saturday!!

Wasn't it a week ago we had snow on the ground? It's a beautiful day in Montgomery! Mal had fever last night and this morning (103.2!!!!) so we spent the morning at the PED office! No flu, ears/throat looked fine, CBC showed a viral infection - possible what I've had? Hopefully she'll improve and be OK by Monday!

When we left there I knew I was smack out of my Heat N Bond Lite. I had some Wonder Under that I used last night for samples, but me & WU do not get along!!! I threw what I had in the trash! So... I drag my poor little girl to a sewing store which I will not name, but it starts with an "H" and it is NOT Hobby Lobby. Of course they only had a little over 2 yards of HNB in stock, so I got it and headed for the register, where I stood with Mallory on my hip for a good 15 minutes! The 1st lady in line evidently had about 5 separate returns and as many purchases. There was a lady behind her (ahead of me) and about 5 people behind me. Do you think any of the 3 or 4 ladies standing around the cutting table budged to come help or open another register? NO! I stood there, and stood there, and my blood began to boil!!! When the very slow cashier called another lady to help her (for the 2nd time), I threw my Heat N Bond on the counter and walked out! Given that I've been shopping at this store for the past 3 years, and even though they don't act like it, they know me! I guess that means I won't be back?? At this point I don't WANT to go back! I drove to JoAnn, and could only find HNB in a package of 5 yards for $10. Of course my coupons were at home b/c I had not planned a trip to JoAnn! But, I had no time to go home and get my coupon and knew I couldn't do any work without my HNB, so I paid full price. UGH!!!!! I hated to make a scene (which I didn't really - just walked out and was obviously miffed). But, hello customer service!!!!!!!!!!! Some people do not have 30 minutes to stand in line with a 2 yr old on their hip!! They don't put more than 1 register in the store for NOTHING ladies!! Off my soapbox!!!

Here are the new AC designs which will be up next week! Another fishing lure...
Some sand toys... (I like these colors together)
Someone sent this design to us to do - 2 peas on a pod.
I will also show it with a little bow on one's sprig of hair...
Lastly this cute puppy dog...
Not sure if we'll get anything else done? We have a couple of others in the works, but aren't exactly the way I want them just yet! Jeff finally got to play golf today (the first time in MONTHS). I know he & his golf buddies were giddy as they stepped up to the first tee box! Mal is napping and the boys are playing Wii and I'm unfortunately WORKING today! :( I have so much to do... Still praying for good health around here!! Check back for the new designs to be listed hopefully by the first of the week!

Okay so seriously! Your designs are getting cuter and cuter! Going to buy the puppy dog now! And love the 2 peas in a pod!

Ummmm....yes been to that "H" store here while 3 women cut fabric and 1 at a register while the line builds up....helloooo?!?!?!

Oh hey - where do you buy your Michael Miller Ta Dot fabric?

I know exactly how you feel about the unnamed store! I have a feeling they wont last long now that we have JoAnn. I have seen some of their better employees at JoAnn.

I feel you on the "H" store! Sadly, it is our best fabric store in my town :( Guess their customer service stinks in every location???

I agree, these designs are absolutely ADORABLE!!! My favorites! I feel the very same about H's and I live in another state and we have no other alternative!!! I'm dreaming of a JoAnn's. Rosemary, I am beginning to feel the very same about the Wonder Under. I am going to switch over to your Heat and Bond. It can't get any worse. Hope you are feeling better soon!

It must just be a prerequisite for the "H" store. Thankfully, it's not our only choice in the Shoals!! But, man, they are definitely slow!

The H store in B'ham is awful too! I have walked out several times after standing there forever! Love, Love, the new appliques!

I voiced my opinion in a H store and the lady told me they beg for more help and they will not hire them enough help due to cost cutting.
