Merry Jo-Ann

Our new Jo-Ann Fabric And Craft Store here in Sonora has been busy, busy, with so many great deals on our first three weekends, and shoppers (patiently) waiting in long lines to have their fabric cut, and to check out at the registers. I did a little shopping myself on one of my days off last week. I felt compelled to buy some of the fabulous Christmas fabrics, despite the fact that I have no real plans for them yet.
I am mostly attracted to the ones that have a vintage or retro look, but I waited too long to get the cutest Santa one, and it was gone. I chose this gorgeous ornament fabric:

And this pretty red and white design with a Nordic look:

I could not resist the one below, either - isn't it the CUTEST?

I have had my eye on this Martha Stewart Glitter Set, below, for a very long time. I simply couldn't afford to buy it at full price. but Jo-Ann will accept Michael's store coupons, as well as their own and others, and I had one for 50% off, so I finally "splurged" on my glitter!

I do wish I were getting to work more hours, but for now, I am just glad I have a job at all!

I only wish I could take pictures in the store and show you all of the fabulous stuff we have!
Guess you will just have to come on in!

OMG! I was at that store a couple of weeks ago! Do you love having a JoAnn's in Sonora?! (It was long overdue... remember the old store at The Junction!?) How fun to work at a brand new store-- and get to see the new stuff as it comes in!

Next time I'm in Sonora I'll have to pop by--- maybe we'll run into each other! (Who knows... maybe we did, and didn't even know it!)

Hugs,
Jill

I was doing a project with Martha glitter just this morning! it's so sparkly, and don't you just love looking at all of those colors together? What a treat!

That fabric is beautiful! The Alexander Henry especially makes me squeal and plan how soon I can possibly make it to JoAnn's to buy some!
