Great Thanksgiving!!

First of all I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family and friends!!I had a great Thanksgiving!I cooked and baked and did all that good stuff!Family and friends all came our house for dinner.Great time!!

My sister and I went out shopping at 4:00 in the morning.I wanted to go to JoAnn's and she wanted to go to Walmart.Well I gave in and went to Walmart.We went to the super Walmart got a close parking space walk right on in.Then we get to the electronic department that's when all heck broke!!They had all sales items wrapped up in black wrap with the salesman standing by the items until 5:00am when the sales start.Guys when the that clock hit 5:00am this is when the people went CRAZY!!I wished I wished I had my camera so I could have video tape that!!!.After my sister got what she wanted, I went to JoAnn's and she went to Jcpenny's.The main thing I wanted from JoAnn's was the dress form that they had on sale for 89.99!!They were all gone I was heart broken!!!!So I went to pick out some flannel material they had on sale for .99 cent a yard.Got ready to get in line had to get a number.The number they were on was 5,I had number 62!!!!!!!!!!!!!!I waited 2 hours to get my fabric cut out.I made a lot of friends while I was waiting.Well now I have enough fabric to make PJ's bottoms for family and friends.

This is what the two hour wait was for!!I only paid 16.00$ for 16 yards of fabric pretty good I think!!

Simplicity 3961

This was a easy sew.I just love easy patterns.I bought this pattern when JoAnn fabrics had their Simplicity patterns on sale for 1.99.When they have a pattern sale I have buy at least one pattern to feel good!
Material:This fabric had been in my stash a while couldn't remember what kind it was.I do remember that it was on clearance for 1.50 an yard and that it was machine washable.
Notions: 7" zipper,hook and eye, one package of twill tape.
Color: gray/black and a hint of blue.

I want to use this fabric to make a top to go with the gauchos I made.The thing is it is only two yards of fabric so it will have to be a sleeveless top or a short sleeve top.I am going to try and use a pattern I already have.TRYING VERY HARD NOT TO BUY ANY MORE PATTERNS!!WELL FOR THIS YEAR ONLY!!!

My very first crocheted slipper!!My dd loved them so I will be making more.I added the pom pom to them.
Yarn: worsted medium
Color: Frosty green
Pattern: Child Slipper (very easy)

Well that's it for me have a great day!Happy crafting!!

I use to do those Black Friday's at Walmarts with my mom and sister...after the police had to be called to stop the people from fighting...I stopped going. Not worth it especially since Walmart reduces everything again before Christmas!

I really like the gauchos and the fabric for the top - seriously, you should be able to get a top with some sleeves out of that fabric! The slippers are adorable too!

Cheryl Wray said...

The action at Walmart sounds CRAZY!!! But not for me!!! :-)

The slippers are SO cute!!!

Black Fiday shopping is crazy, but you gotta love the sales!

Aly Cat 121 said...

Girl you cooked a huge azz meal AND still had time to sew? LOL. Shoot I could barely make side dishes and shop the next day in my right mind.

The fabrics look pretty. We shopped too but it was later that morning so I think we missed alot of the craziness. Glad you have a great holiday.

Adriann said...

You really scored on the flannel. Too funny about the Walmart incident. LOL!!! I haven't gone out for a Black Friday yet. I did some online shopping though. Not as exciting I'm sure.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
