Look What We Found


The two sisters set out for Santa Clara. Carey was my driver, as we were spending the day doing "sister" stuff on the way to Stitches. On the agenda was a trip to the Stanford Mall and an adventure to check out the store that bears the name of our blog.


We had the name first. Honest. We had no clue a store would open a few months later three hours from home that would be very like the store we would have. A good supply of yarn, a good supply of paper, and a heck a lot of creativity.

It was nice. They had a nice open space for scrapbooking, a cozy space for knitting, and a sewing room and lockers for use. Interesting concept.
I did not buy any yarn. I bought a little thing for Tracy, and a cable needle.
I would add more yarn to their stock (of course), but they had a lot of kits (including a Noni bobble bag kit for $85) and interesting things. They did not have a lot of paper.
They do have a cool name.
Along the roadside today we saw an abundance of creatures. Sheep, cows, goats, chickens, alpacas, horses, long horn cattle, deer, two dead skunks, and vulture-like birds circling over something. It was very entertaining. Also along the roadside were dozens of daffodils. I love spring. Especially when it happens in February.
