Wow, Go Beth! That's awesome!!!! I got my set from Michaels, too. Even their full price wasn't bad. Maybe I could have saved a couple bucks had I gone online for them, but this way I didn't have to wait for shipping!
YOU got a STEAL though! Congrats!!!!
Tip: I use a circle cut out from a pair of yellow dish-washing gloves, to replace the grip they give you in the kit. It grips much better, so you can easily tighten the needles properly, and you'll never ever have them get loose on you, which is the only complaint I ever hear about this set.
Enjoy your set!

"There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all of time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and it will be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is nor how valuable nor how it compares with other expressions. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open. You do not even have to believe in yourself or your work. You have to keep yourself open and aware to the urges that motivate you. Keep the channel open."
