A Rant Whilst Purchasing Supplies - Robin

Why IS it that your local craft/fabric store (Jo-Annes, you know who I mean) never, ever has all the things you need at one time so you can get in and out and back to your project. A simple list: snaps to epoxy to the hoop wire for the experiment and rounded covered button kits in two sizes. No, I'm sorry i don't want to buy the size you have in hopes that just MAYBE you'll have the other size I need someday. Then you see some fabric (canvas, stiff stuff, on sale) that you need for a piece of your other project and, after standing in line forever to get it cut, then forever-and-a-day to check out, you realize that, although you've signed up on-line and in the store twice, you still haven't gotten any coupons and you've wasted two hours.

Maybe THAT'S why people shop online instead of bricks-and-mortar stores.

OK, enough of that.  I got the epoxy, got the snaps, but can only do one side at a time until it cures, so here's a pic of one side of the snaps on one side of the hoop.  Stay tuned.
