I spent about $40 and $20 at Joann's and Hobby Lobby today on beading stuff for making my own decorative stitch markers. At Joann's they had 40% off their knitting accessories, so I did get some bamboo circulars, and a copy of Vogue Knitting with my 50% off coupon. They had 40% off a lot of their beading stuff too, so I bought a lot there, including a set of 5 jeweler's pliers for $6.99
They also had 50% off a lot of their beading stuff at Hobby Lobby too, so I picked up more there, plus beads in different colors they were out of at Joann's. I really love blue and silver together, and they didn't seem to have much in the blue I wanted at Joanns, but I did get a some purple stuff, and I think 3 packages of 6 toggles for only $1.19 each! I got the blue stuff at Hobby Lobby.
And today's a rainy, cold day, perfect for doing some knitting and beading!
