Saturday Road trip

Hi! Everyone.

We took a road trip in by Chicago to a needleshop Welcome Stitchery - and then on to Hoffman Estates to Cabela's Official Website - Quality Hunting, Fishing, Camping and Outdoor Gear at competitive prices.
Here's a photo of my stash I bought. The two upper left charts are the ones I bought a few weeks back when we went to the wedding. I am trying to organize it this afternoon, so I can start one or two new ones tonite.
I bought a couple halloween charts, but plan them for later on after Christmas. I was kinda of dissappointed they didnt have all the fabby I wanted. They have such a huge selection. I plan on stitching alot this week, plus frame a few. I did get a couple of frames plus some threads that are not shown.
Here's the inside of the Cabela's, it was so awesome. There was so many people shopping there. They had a grand opening, they opened a few weeks ago.
We both spent hours and money in each of our stores, lol.
Now I have to get stitching.
I did get my invoice for JJ's and should be excepting a stash postie within a few days now, yippee.
I finished Witchy Washy, but want to get the buttons and apply them before I show a pic.
I hope to be done with my SAL Salem Sisters this Wednesday, already have a frame for it.
I hope to have a post with atleast one new start and a few framed finishes in the next couple of days.
I did get The Gift of Stitching, Thanks for all the comments about whether to get it or not.
Well, there's my run down, lol.
Better get a stitchin'
Take care!!!

Fantastic stash selection. I am envious.

Surprisingly (well to me anyway) I have heard of Cabela before. So many times I read blogs from other countries and the shop names are not familiar. But the name is familiar from the Iditarod which I read about each year over here - http://unaboard.coalgoddess.net/showthread.php?s=&threadid=17992\

This is a great collection of items you purchased.

We have purchased from Cabela's once and pour over their catalogues all the time. We would love to visit there if we ever have a chance to visit America.

my goodness girl, that is quite the stash. Your needles will really have to smoke now. I have not been to Cebela's yet, but it is on the list.

Okay, another story that I think is funny, but you probably won't and may not even want to read. I have a good blogging friend in the Chicago area and she was telling me about the Cabelas store and how the have DEAD animals everywhere! LOL! She thinks they're posed really cute! LOL! We have a Cabelas in the area and 1 1/2 (#2 is still being built) Bass Pro shops - big ones. I'm glad you enjoyed both stores. You got some great patterns. I'm looking forward to seeing your finished Witchy Washy. I hope you enjoy the Gift of Stitching subscription. I love the chessboard featured in this months magazine and am getting the stuff ready to stitch it.
I hope Briana is doing well, take care - Julie
