Marvelous Monday Update 6/9/14

On Friday, I finished the stitching part of Petal Pincushion.  ::little happy dance::  By the end of the weekend, I had all four "petal" sides put together.  This week, I'll attempt more of the assembly.

Construction companies have been busy over the past several months.... putting up a new JoAnn Fabrics!  It's scheduled to open in July.  I'm looking forward to it as our current one has been in sad, sad shape for quite a while.

The Old Store
The New Store
 Incidentally, both stores are right next to each other! A strip mall used to line two sides of the parking lot.  With the exception of three stores: old JoAnn's, Dollar General, and Sherwin Williams, all of the old strip mall was demolished and the New JoAnn's put up.

Until next time,

Your stitching looks great, Meari. We got a new Jo-Ann's in Billings last year. Looks just the same as your new one.

Take Care & Happy Stitchin'
Hugs, Sandy

Your petal pincushion is really coming together-how exciting!

Good for you! Our old JoAnn closed two years ago now. It was a bit sad looking also. Our new JoAnn is very close by and gorgeous. It is amazing what a boost in business this created.

Can't wait to see the pincushion all put together. Our JoAnn's did the same thing a year ago, except they moved across the street. They didn't move anything from the old store to the new store so it was all continually marked down. Of course they weren't replenishing stock either so it wasn't always a successful shopping trip.

The pincushion pieces look so pretty. Seems like a complicated construction, but will be worth the effort.

We just got a new Joann's around here not long ago. I had know idea it was coming and when I stumbled on it in the mall, I just about jumped for joy. I love that store! they are always better stocked when they are brand new.

Your pin cushion pattern is looking great.

Glad that you are having two Joannes in your area.

Gorgeous work on the pincushion.

A new Joann's is awesome. Our closest big one is about 20 miles away. But even our small one isn't terrible. They keep the floss stocked.

Oh, that pincushion is going to be gorgeous, Meari! And what fun you'll have at the new JoAnn's--lucky you!
