I'm not being snarky. I truly enjoyed imagining their enjoyment.
And I didn't spend the whole day in vicarious enjoyment. My sister took me to Michael's to have my own kind of fun among the thread.
I bought a book of counted cross stitch patterns for bookmarks and some aida cloth, a ball of size 10 crochet crochet thread in Cream, a color I don't have in my palette yet. I also picked up a size 12 crochet hook, now the smallest hook in my collection. I seldom see them smaller than size 10 in the stores.
I also got a couple of gadgets for counting rows on crochet projects. This will help me with a couple of projects that give me fits every time I set them aside for a day or two and then have to try to figure out where in the pattern I left off. Along with those I got a packet of stitch markers.
And on the 'as is' shelf I picked up a string of beads that had several broken ones for 1/6 the full cost. I'll pull them off the string and use the good ones singly to decorate bookmarks.
All that for $16. It's the first time I've spent money on myself for non-essentials since the first of the year.
