Some of you might not know that I live in the Philippines. And here, it is UBER hard to find patterns. So hard that as soon as I hear a whisper of a possible stash place, I'm off! Heck, it's so hard I shop online or in Singapore. Do you have any idea how expensive that is???
(example: a pattern that is worth $10 is already around 450pesos... and that is more than the minimum daily wage here).
And now... I heard a whisper...someone was selling Mirabilias and L&Ls. Budget be damned. I wanted those. So I put money in my bag. Grabbed my dad and we went. Basically out of town. Following sketchy directions taken from small posts on the internet. I was like a tourist, turning this way and that in the car. Pointing out buildings I've never seen before.
We were treasure hunting.
And I got 'em. I got my treasure. :) Think scrooge over his gold. That's how I feel over these now.
Thank God for a Dad who supports my crazy whims. He drove me out of town just so I can go treasure hunt. Think one and half hour driving...one way. Thanks Daddy!!
And... I just want to share my latest stitchy find. A BEADS ORGANIZER. I basically cut out the number on the mill hills package and stuck it on the butt of the containers. I prefer it on the butt instead of the top. Who knows if I'd get absent minded enough to switch covers by accident. This way, since it's on the body... I know that the numbers have the right beads attached to it.
Happy sigh. My Panda just asked me "what are you doing?" I answered "Gloating".
And I am. Wheeeeeeeeeee!!! Happy butt dance of joy. uh-huh! uh-huh! Yeah!
