Part 1 of the good news is that I finally bought a sidewinder. I haven't tried it out yet (still searching for some AA batteries) but I will update once I've tested it.
Part 2 of the good news is that I DID NOT BUY ANY FABRIC! I'm still in shock......I rifled through the remnant bins and checked out the specials table but I didn't find anything that I HAD to buy (of course there were plenty of things that I wanted but I resisted).
Instead I bought some pins, some magnetic bag clasps, a new fabric marking pen, some bamboo knitting needles and...........
I think I may have replaced my fabric addiction with a yarn addiction!
