I was up early this morning to go to Bellingham. Since it was a nice day I went all the way to Whidbey Island to Anacortes to shop at Ana-Cross Stitch. I picked up some WDW and Shaker floss, the May-August HIH monthly markings, L*K Hocus Pocus, a couple of Bent Creek holiday charts and a really cute elephant design by Heart Strings. Then I noticed a bin with fabric scraps, about a dozen pieces wrapped in ribbon for $5.00. They are big enough for a fob or ornament, various colors, I couldn't resist and got 2. At the end of the block from the shop is this fire hydrant/fountain.

When I left there and since it was still early, thought I would "hop" over to Oak Harbour and check out their cross stitch shop. It wasn't where I last saw it and apparently no longer exists. Good thing I like to drive and was able to take some pictures along they way or I would be very upset. Well I am, but serves me right for not checking first.
These are a few of the photos I took.
When I got back to Bellingham I went to J&J Needle Arts shop. I was there about a year ago, only to find that they had closed. I thought maybe they had retired, but was surprised to find they had only moved to another location. I did buy a couple of things, which I will share next time. I'm too tired to get up and see what it was *LOL*
And speaking of tired, I must get to bed, it has been a very long day. Tomorrow I get to rest and then I'm working for 2 days, so that means getting up early again.
