My God I Already Bought Something!!!
My God, what is it, Jan 3rd and already I've bought something new.
It was needles for my sewing machine. (and I did mention I was going to buy those...) I'm making my mother-in-law a purse for her birthday and I knew I broke the last one a few weeks ago. I was also in the same plaza as Jo-Ann's today and thought it silly to have to drive back out to buy a darn needle just because I didn't want to buy something "new" so soon.
So I spent $3.29 on 4 needles. Read all of the backs of the packages. There were 3 kinds. 1 Made in China and 2 made in India (Who knows, is India any better than China?) I chose Singer needles from India.
It was 11:30am. I was meeting a friend for lunch across the parking lot at 11:35 am. I thought briefly about going after lunch but I figured giving myself so little time to buy the needles would eliminate any desire to look at stuff! I walked QUICKLY past all of the sale holiday merchandise. I was like a horse with blinders on making my way to the sewing needles. I ignored the sale fabric and pretended there was no yarn at all in the store.
