Stray kitten claims basket

Just look at what the cat dragged in!

Seriously…I really do have a stash to show. 😉

*This is a little stray kitty that has claimed an empty basket as his own. It’s a teeny tiny basket and he barely fits in it. His ‘momma’ is one wild feral thing, but the babies are all adoptable. He’s on a card table outside in our car port.*

Hubby and I went on a little run to the local art stores. We visited a paint and graphics place, (for Oil Paint) and I of course HAD to squeeze in the Local Needle supply Shop Fiddlesticks . We are pretty loyal customers there. We’d hate to see Hawaii without a great supply store like them.

Guess what I found!

Medicis Wool

Fiddlesticks has DMC Medicis wool on clearance for 50% off! It’s 63 cents a skein! (I guess it’s been discontinued by DMC.)

So, I now have a haul of wool to work with as part of my needle thread palette. I’m so excited! I can’t wait to create some designs with them. I’ve had some for some rose buds that I’m creating, but this will open my palette to more textures. I got a few fistfuls…

Aren’t they great!

It was a fun day. It’s always great to find some stash on sale!

*I just HAD to post the kitten…they are all just so cute stumbling around here at the house.* 😉

Your life needs fun. Go ahead, have some fun!

    Be still my heart! Would I like to get my mitts on all those threads! The colors are just beautiful! Lucky you… And the kitty is sooo adorable. Has he made his way into the house yet?

  5. Hi Sue,
    (Did I mention that my middle name is Sue?)
    Thanks for the comment.
    Believe me, I couldn’t believe the great deals hubby and I found the other day while we were out and about. We didn’t set out for them…they just appeared! It was great to have found the thread. I love that shop!
    The kitty has tried to get indoors. We have so many cats…all from this one feral stray that we just cannot capture long enough to have her spayed. We’ve tried everything. We’ve already rescued several litters. This little darling will have to find a home. Or…maybe he has already eh?

  6. Hi Sharon,
    lol… That was a pretty big haul, but, yes, there was still quite a bit left for everyone else! I didn’t take any duplicate colors and she still had more of each color there. That’s one reason I posted her shop here…any of you that want some can call her!
