After work I went to our "local" Walmart which is 24 miles away. I want to do an embroidery that a blogger kindly posted for anyone to use. I thought it would be cute for my friend's sewing room. She has been diagnosed with leukemia and I like to try and brighten her day with little things.
What a wasted trip. They had no white fat quarters and I'm not about to buy fabric off the bolt for one little project. Additionally no one was in the section so that would mean hunting someone down if I did want to.
Of the five colors of floss they only had one! And surprisingly it was the red #666 which I figured as conservative and christian this town is would be outlawed, LOL. I mean someone proposed to change the addresses of every house that had any form of 666 in it.
5" hoop? Are you kidding? We have 4" or 6". Ugly plastic. I'd prefer wood as the picture is framed in a wood hoop. Ok, I could deal with that but if I can't get the rest why buy the hoop and needles needed?
They drove our little sewing and craft store out of business and then turned around and don't carry as much as they used to so they can expand into more a little of this and a little of that and a bunch of junk no one really needs. My opinion of course.
They didn't have picture hanging things either, just the wire.
