This morning Addie and I were taking a girls only trip to town. Getting away is hard to do. I’m not sure if Vince is overprotective or wants to be sure Addie doesn’t talk me into buying everything in the store.
Our first stop was Hobby Lobby because I can come from the back side, stay off the crazy traffic road (Rangeline) and because we needed elastic and safety pins and I was afraid Walmart wouldn’t have one or both, we’d have ice cream and milk and wouldn’t be able to stop anywhere else. We rushed into Hobby Lobby, got only elastic and safety pins and were on our way.
Next stop was a new to us donut shop a friend had told me about. We were back on Rangeline so I found the donut shop but I guess they decided to take today off for the 4th.
It was about 10:30 and we were hungry. I remembered that Schlotzky’s opened at 10 in Brownwood so that was nice when I was in town earlier than most restaurants were open. I like Schlotzky’s and Vince does not so Addie and I turned around and went back to Schlotzky’s. Nope. Big sign on the door — until further notice, we open at 11.
Addie said “I think Subway is open!” Not my favorite but she loves it so we went to Subway and had sandwiches there then went to Walmart and bought our groceries.
Vince got home a bit after we did. He had been to a flea market and .. heaven help us .. he found cross stitching stuff. Lots old (really old) magazines and old, yellowed with age Aida. Two BIG bags full of stuff. He’s trying to be helpful. I did thumb through a couple of the magazines and found a few things I would make. I haven’t finished going through all the stuff yet and he left to go to another flea market.

Maybe the old Aida would be fun to experiment with hand dyeing?
Judy Laquidara says
That’s what I was thinking.
Maybe you could wash it real good and let Addie cross stitch on it. It may be easier to start on than linen over 2. She could start out with a bookmark or something easy to get her hooked.
Nelle Coursey says
What a sweet thing to do for you. He was thinking of you and how much you would love this.
Judy Laquidara says
Yes, that was very nice of him.
