Addicted beyond my control!!!

Yep, totally addicted!!! (story below)
Well.......I had to go to Hobby Lobby to get lanyard hooks for a project that a group I am in 
is working on.  I got the 300 lanyard hooks and decided to look a little(yah right!).
Well, going down the yarn row was ok(since I am not a knitter or crocheter that is fine), but then there was a small rack on the end of a row that had Lizbeth threads and beads on clearance. I looked at the prices and said....I am going to buy these out(I left some beads for someone else, but all the threads are with me(10 of them, 5 size 20 and 5 size 80).  Got some really good deals on them all, but feeling a bit guilty since I know I didn't NEED any of them!!  I looked for more Clover shuttles, but apparently they are no longer carrying them.  They did have their normal Lizbeth size 20, and then the 80, but they also had a few size 3.  Too bad they don't carry a bigger selection of colors and all the sizes!!!  Oh well....not sure how I will justify any new purchases for long while.
  I am hoping to spend more time on my 2014 Spring Doily today, I am about 1/2 way around.
Have a happy tatting day!!!  :)

Just did a quick figure on what I saved...$28.58....awesome!!  :)

Sorry, I would only be an enabler to your addiction. I am eying your collection now...
Sigh. Good thing we don't live closer to each other.

She who dies with the most thread, WINS!

Ha ha StringyDogs!! :) I can't seem to think that I would win because I believe I can't take it with me. Have a great day!! :)

Jenn said...

You can never have enough thread :). So jealous that you can get them easily :). I can only buy thread online.

Great find I will have to go now and check my Hobby lobby out :)

God's Kid said...

Thanks everyone!!! :)
I can understand Jenn! I can usually only get my size 40 online.
I hope you will find some Madtatter80!! :)

Isn't it fun? Denise and I bought out the sale thread and shuttles at our Hobby Lobby. The new display is in place. I am disappointed that there isn't more, but it's not like I really need any tatting supplies!

God's Kid said...

Yes, Diane, it is fun, but I am also thankful that it's limited so I don't cause financial trouble!!! :) I was disappointed there wasn't more thread on clearance, but also thankful that they didn't do away with the tatting supplies all together as I had thought at first. They just moved them around to the next aisle.

This is not reasonable. But you are not alone !

Good shopping day, well done!!

God's Kid said...

Thank you Lilas and Jane!! :)

Oh Sue , so glad you confessed! ;-) I happened into my HL a few weeks ago as the clerk was making room for the discounted Lizbeth threads on the clearance area. I switched carts with her and bought them all. I am too embrassed to post a picture. I'm so glad to know I share my addiction. :-)

God's Kid said...

Awesome Gwen!! I sure wish I had gotten there like you did, but I am pleased with my purchase, and now I will be trying to get there and check a little more often. :)

Bernice said...

You made me laugh, so glad you were able to get such a deal. I have nothing to confess but I would have done the same.

WOW! Fantastic find, and you got them on clearance, what a good 'excuse' to stock up. :-)
I'm afraid I would have to live to be older than Methuselah, have several pairs of hands, and tat 24/7 to use up the thread I *already* have, but somehow whenever there is a 'special' project, we always seem to need a color or size of thread we don't have in the stash. :-) If you feel the need to use up some of that thread, there are several pretty patterns out there for tatted collars - some take size 30, some size 20, but they're all lovely. With size 20 thread, I've found I can often get 1 good-sized collar out of a single ball of Lizbeth. Use a second color for 'trim,' and you may be able to get 'matching' collars (using the 'trim' color for the main color on one and the 'main' color for the trim color). Anything left after a collar MAY give you enough to tat a second (much smaller) collar, or bookmarks, edgings....lots of things. AND you'll have a head start on your 'gift' stash for birthdays/Christmas/whatever.

Always a great reason to 'need' to buy more thread!

Can't wait to see what you tat with it.

Thanks for the suggestions SWtrompeter!! :)
