  1. Thanks for a great series. It was fun reading along.

  2. I love fabric!! Most definitely my favorite “craft” item! I love Hobby Lobby for fabric of course, and Mary Jo’s as well.

      I miss Mary Jo’s! 🙁 The next time we come up there, I am definitely bringing a list and going shopping at Mary Jo’s. We got my bridesmaid dress material there at a steal.
