Discounts from the big box store

Evidently Hobby Lobbys (across the U.S., anyway) are marking down craft stuff, and I finally found one in my area that had made it to the cross stitch aisle in doing mark-downs.

I've been eyeing the Thea Gouverneur and Riolis kits for a couple of years, but couldn't bring myself to spring for them even with a 40% off coupon. The Lanarte owl kit will be my first full coverage project. Those kits run $40 - $45 each full price; I got them for $9 - $11. 😮

And I got the bag for a friend's mom, who loves owls, for $5.50! The other items cost between $0.50 - $1.50 each.
Regular retail value is over $200; it all cost me $58. Woo hoo!

Good for you! I wonder if they are reducing inventory to make room for new or reducing to eliminate sections of the craft department.

A belated September finish

I was so close to finishing the stitching on this last weekend, but ended up doing other things instead. If the orange looks blinding on you...
