Hancocks of Paducah

So we took a little road trip this week, and we went right through Paducah!!! And there it was! Just a block from exit 4. I had to do it! Fairly unassuming exterior, but I was getting excited.
At first, I wasn't that impressed.  I mean, I've been to Mary Jo's many times.  But the more I looked the more I liked!  I found so many beautiful fabrics.

I was ready to go, and, while in search of the bathroom, I stumbled on a whole new room.  Oh my gosh!!!!  It was the room of kits and cuts room.  I had so much fun looking! I had a Christmas tree quilt picked out, but they were out and had no more.
Those shelves in the back were for the internet sales and were all nicely labeled with specials and sales! It was really a wonderful place.

But here is the part that you will find hard to believe:  I didn't buy one thing.  Not one.  I would have gotten the kit, but they were out.  I looked at notions, but nothing called to me.  And the one thing I really, really wanted, thread or my mid-arm, they didn't have.  So I just enjoyed breathing in the dyes and looking around.  Next time we go through there, I'll have myself an agenda! I actually think it's better than Mary Jo's!!

I still am without mojo, but I'm thinking about quilting more.  That's good.  I need some black thread to quilt my Halloween quilt, but I haven't ordered it yet.  Need to continue work on my tshirt quilt.

I am working on an embroidery for my nail lady who has done my nails for 20 years.  She's a Halloween freak, so I'm trying to get it done for that.  I enjoy hand stitching.

Hope all is well for you.  Busy times coming up.  Fall break for my grandkids.  Football games.  Hayride.  Halloween.  Another road trip!
