Birthday Yarn Fun

Not everything about adding another birthday milestone is negative.  Our friends Sylvia and Larry from Spring, TX arrived on Wednesday afternoon to celebrate my birthday with us.  Sylvia gifted me a cute, handy size project bag.  Of course for my birthday on Thursday we had to go yarn shopping to fill it with the right stuff!

First we visited RosePath Weaving in the country between Tyler and Lindale.  Sylvia found a beautiful yarn to buy but I didn't see exactly the right ones for me. 

Then we headed to Longview (almost an hour drive) to eat at Dudley's Cajun Cafe where I indulged in a catfish po'boy, Sylvia had the catfish lunch with onion rings, Larry and Ron each had a crawfish pie plate.  We all stuffed ourselves!  Then waddled our way into Stitches 'n Stuff to pet some more yarn.  I had been in before so was somewhat prepared for the quantities of yarn.  Sylvia spent the first 15 minutes on overload just trying to grasp what was there and where to start looking!  That was what I had done the first time I visited.
If the quantites in the store don't overwhelm you, they invite you to visit their storeroom closet.

This is the shopping bag that I filled.  I think Sylvia had even more than I did when we left almost two hours after arriving.
