First time.

New Giant Granny Square! I'm still working on the orange and white one, but I couldn't help start this one! I went up to GA the other weekend to see my very dear friend Andrea for her birthday and Halloween. While I was there we went to Hobby Lobby! It was my first time! At first I was like, yikes, this is all crap and nic nacs, but once you go through all that towards the walls you get to the craft supplies! At Hobby Lobby they constantly have sales?! The girl who rang me up gave me 50% off everything almost! Is that normal, I'm not arguing just curious.  The yarn in my arms was 2 dollars a roll - that's a deal! Plus I bought a few hoops, because in Tampa all the Michael's are sold out of hoops! Thank you Andrea for putting up with my oohhh's and ahhh's at Hobby Lobby! You're the best ;)
Do you all have a Hobby Lobby? What's your favorite craft supply store?

Oh and don't forget my Sweet 'Stache Giveaway!

<3 Hobby Lobby! And yes, they alternate what's on sale every week. It's especially helpful when you're in art school. :)

there's a HL in Ocala! i went there a few months ago and almost died. I'm surprised they don't have one in Tampa or pinellas county! Lots of fun stuff!

We have a Hobby Lobby here but I sooo wish we had a Michael's too. They do have sales a lot if you watch for them! Looks like you had fun and got lots of goodies.

I am loving the granny square!!! I hope to learn to crochet at some point!

Georgia!! YEA! lol. I love hobby lobby! THey always have clearance too!! I've gotten a ton of yarn there for $1 and the yarn you got it my favorite! "I love this yarn" is so soft unlike most worsted weight yarn! and you get a crap load of it for like 3 bucks.

I like Jo-Ann fabrics too, they have a really good collection of yarns and everything in general! ;)

Looks like you did really well and I love the colours of your new granny square!xx
