Doctor's appt and a little shopping

Well, I had to make a quick trip to my surgeon's office yesterday morning.  He had to give me the A-OK to go back to work at the end of this week (which he did).  I kind of liked being a stay at home mom again though.He's not too happy with my calcium level though.  Super low. :(  He's not too happy about it, but I'm doing everything he told me to do.  So he added another prescription to help my calcium tablets absorb.  Since I had to make the trip to his office (which is an hour away), I thought I'd make a visit to the local Joann's Fabrics.  I really love Joann's.  Their fabric is so pretty.  The one I went to is one of the smaller Joann's so they didn't have the selection that the one closer to my house had, but I was still able to find some new pretties to spend some money on.  What was even better was that I had a coupon for everything that I bought.  LOVE IT!!!
Some beautiful Christmas fabbies

Then I was looking a little bit more and found this beauty that I had to have.  Better yet, it was 40% off.  
Gingher's Charlene scissors
Today, DH and I had a date day.  Ran around  and did some shopping and then had lunch.  We made a quick stop at Old Navy and found my middle DD new blue jeans.  They were on clearance for $1.97 a pair.  So we walked out with 5 pairs of jeans for her for $10.00.  I was so excited!!!!!  
Then we ran to Border's.  I love Border's, but I don't go as much as I used to because I have an iPad, so I buy most of my books online.  But I do love to look at their magazine section.  
Why is it that it seems the best cross stitch/scrapbooking/cardmaking magazines are all published in the UK?  Granted there are some nice ones here in the US, but the UK ones are awesome.  My DH bought me a Christmas Card magazine today from the UK.  I absolutely love it!!!!  Can't wait to start making some cards from it.
Well, I guess I'll get off and stitch, I think I'm going to start a new project tonight.  I have to get as much stitching in the next 2 days as I can since I go back to work Thursday night.  I'll try to post a picture of my new start tomorrow.

Great fabrics! Don't you just love Joann's? If you see my post from yesterday on my blog, I went to Joann's and purchased my first pair of Gingher's, the black and white striped ones. I love them!!

Hi Melissa

Thank you so much for being my No. 3. Our Borders here in the U.K. went bust about a year ago and i really miss it because all of the US magazines are so much better than the U.K. ones! See we always want what we can't have. Anyway I love your blog and now is a very welcome addition to my bloglist. Could you please email me at patreeshal@gmail.com so I have your email address and can email you and thank you properly.

Love the fabrics. I would love to be able to quilt and thanks to Lana I now know I can and will be able to soon enough. I LOVE your blog by the way and thanks again for coming to mine and signing up to be my NUMBER 3 YAY!!!

Lots of Love

Hi Melissa! Just want to say thank you for visiting my blog and leaving such a nice comment...I'm always happy to discover other stitching blogs to follow :)

I love your new fabrics and try to visit my Joann's at least once a week--it is such fun just wandering through the fabrics, isn't it? Your new scissors are beauties, too--enjoy!

Gorgeous fabric! I went to Jo-Ann's this past week but could only find the Ella scissors. Not that I'm complaining ;o)

Sounds like you had a wonderful day with DH.

Thank you for visiting my Blog :o)
