Default Out of Lockdown & Going to LQS First Thing!

We've been under a Stay at Home order since March and it ends tomorrow!
Going to leave early and be sure I'm one of the first in line for my LQS! I need so many little things. Just realized tonight...I have no purple thread. How can a person have no purple thread?

I'm far too excited.

Certainly a person needs purple thread -- and probably lots of other things! So glad you get to go!

I am waiting for my second shot so I will only be doing necessary grocery shopping. I can hardly wait for the day I can fondle the fabric! Have fun!

Oh I'm glad people are getting back to normal routines. The quilt shops here never closed because they sold sewing machines and any equipment was considered essentials. My state never had a lockdown or stay at home mandate so it wasn't so confining for us but no place to go as all the fun activities were cancelled anyway. I spent a lot of time at the quilt shops and took quilt classes I never would have thought to before Covid. The quilt shops kept me from getting depressed and isolated.
