Got some GANGA XS Stash Deals Today!!!



I am sooooooooooo excited about the GANGA deals that I got today at Joann's! I had a 50% off coupon and knew exactly what I would use it for. I am planning on starting my very first HAED pattern after the first of the year and so I thought to myself I need to have a piece of aida large enough for the entire design and all the precut aida/evenweave is not big enough. So Joann's sells different counts of aida at $8.99/yd. So, I used my coupon & bought 5 yards of 18ct white aida and paid only $13.50!!! So it's 5 yards by 44 inches!!! I figure I will be able to use that to stitch 5 different HAED patterns with it!!! I also got DMC floss at 4 for $1! So I bought floss for a friend that lives in Canada bcuz she pays 50cents per skein where she lives. And I also bought the colors that I will need the most of for the HAED pattern that I will be starting after the first of the year. I am so excited about this! And for sewing purposes, I bought lots of needed flannel fabric at only $1.49/yard! GREAT DEALS!!!

The picture you see here is the HAED pattern that I will be starting very soon!!! :~D Looking forward to it very much. But I know that I am going to need lots of help in motiviation since it's such a very large pattern. It measures 500x635 stitches!

My Joanns only has 14 ct. I would give anything for them to carry 18 ct. So I could buy some. I keep looking everytime I am in there but so far no luck.
