Trip To Buttinette -> Germanys "Joanns"

Buttinette is a online-shop where you can buy all kinds of crafty things (well you can also order via telefone, fax or mail) and they have one shop at their place of business.

thats the catalog I normally browse through..... over 500 pages

On a Saturday in September we finially set the date for our trip to Buttinette - we even had a chauffeur (Mariannes husband, Nicoles Dad). He offered to drive us, even after we warned him that it might take some time until we would be done shopping. Still willing to drive us, because he will go for a walk while we are shopping (poor guy - it start pouring down pretty much after we got in the store and didnt stop for the whole time we were in the store, so he was patiently waiting in the car).
After a fun ride through the smallest streets (I guess the Navigation was set for shortest way) we arrived at Germanys "Joanns"


they even have a seperate store for Fasching (carneval) and costumes (still closed since Fasching starts at 11.11. every year)

the store we want to go

the store aint very big and they would sell alot more if it would´ve been placed in the shop not just the warehouse. The stuff is very friendly and they run to the warehouse to get all the things you want (they run alot). It still took us 2 h for 700 sqm

on the way home we stopped for lunch - it was yummieh

here are my goodies I bought - thank you to Nicole for the giftcard (as you can see the money was wisely invested - lol)

It was a fun day and we decided to do it once a year - just for the fun.


I made this get-well-muffin for Marianne after she hurt her hand

  1 FQ,
 1 bead,
some batting and
 a muffin paper cup

Monkey See - Monkey Do............. and Siegfried & Roy

Monkey, monkey, monkey............. that was my theme for the last baby-quilt I made. I started it in April and it took me pretty long to finish it - I almost felt bad - but I´ve finished the quilt just in time for the boys first birthday.

my color selection



I love to pick my motifs out of coloring books/pages

top is done and put aside for almost three month.......

....... until I digged it out again and started to andwich the layers

I really had to force me to finish it up

in the meantime - the quilt is handed over and hopefully be loved.

While I was working on the pics and writing this post I was watching "The Story of Siegfried & Roy" (very interesting how it all begun) 10 years after Roy had the accident with/got attacked by (I leave this up to you) his white tiger Montecore. Also amazing still is Roys love to Montecore - well he keeps distance which is understandable -  he knows because of the handicap he suffers after a stroke right after the tiger-attack and to be unable to react, he would be easy meat. Somehow I understand Roys love......... just a few numbers smaller and no acute danger of life...... when I got my cat Rocco he bit me and almost put me also to the hospital (infected small kitty-cat bite aint fun either) and he still is my lil baby-cat.

Anyways Siegfried & Roys  shows must have been amazing and it kinda makes me sad that I´ve never seen one in Las Vegas.
