Cut to last Saturday at Bargain Bill's in Rice Lake, WI. Debbie and I stopped at this familiar landmark for savvy shoppers, hoping to find some display props or paper products for the shop. As I was cutting through from the silk flowers to yarns, I passed through the black hole of scrapbooking supplies. This is a craft that I can't let myself get sucked into! So I tried to breeze through, not making eye contact with the lovely papers and gadgets and pens and embellishments. It's so hard! I had almost made my way into beading (another black hole for me!) when I noticed GLUES! And lo and behold, TOMBOW! I almost had to laugh, because this was the last thing I would have thought I would find that day, and not only the one with the blue cap, but 2 other types, as well! Of course, I had to purchase a sampling, and now I am going to test them out to see why they came so highly recommended. The key element that makes this all worthwhile for me is that there are dual tips--a fine point and a broad applicator--and that fine point is what I need as long as it doesn't clog. So far, no clogging. This has been a big item for scrapbookers so I probably could have found it at a scrapbooker's store if I had figured that out. I will have to follow up on that, because driving to Rice Lake for a bottle of glue would not be a wise thing to do!
I'm not just into glue--
I finished this baby size Chill Pill, I love the way this backing fabric fit with the blocks, and it was in my stash for years just waiting for the right moment.
And now this little flannel quilt is on the frame and will be quilted and finished lickety-split!
