Yeah I'm back on the road again, thank goodness. Yesterday I went out and about, mostly to Target and the market. My life isn't always fascinating you know! So what's with Target not having any big Valentine section and instead having a Costco style warehouse display in the back? Luckily my days home this week were productive. I'm making slow progress on a lot of stuff.. projects for fun with no deadline tend to just ramble on.
Congratulations to local shop In Between Stitches, they're in the spring APQ Quilt Sampler. We've been waiting for their announcement, we'd heard rumblings about it last fall!
Ok peeps you guys have a great weekend!

I read that Target wants to compete with the big box retailers, thus the new area in the back with larger size items. Wrong, wrong, wrong! That's what set them apart. You could always count on them to have the "cute" stuff. I hope they change back. Congrats on getting the car back.

Ooooooooh. I was just at Target this morning and ran away from that junky looking section. Hey, they can sell us big packages of stuff but that junky looking area with bins of who knows what?!?!? Did not like that at all. Plus? NO COCONUT M&Ms. I know!

Oh NOOOOOOO!!! Don't even tell me they are ruining Target! I was just thinking I need to get out more, but now if everything is going to hell in a handbasket, I might just go back to bed. Holy crap.

Now I'm going to have to go to Target today. Just to see.

Target used to have the cute market emporium section after Christmas ... I am quite disappointed as a target-a-hol-ic. Now that corner of the store looks like the evil empire (Walmart) and who ever goes there? Might just have to say something!

I'm also bummed at the way Target is going. Not cool at all. But sounds like there's good news with the bad for our town today. Congrats to IBS!

Last year they held the Valentine stuff until the first of Feb.

I know, right? Not only giant packs of stuff, but big cardboard bins of crappy t-shirts. Whassup Target??

Productive without deadlines, you say, what is that??? Definitely unfamiliar territory.

I wondered the same thing when I was in Target. I hope this isn't their new trend - they're perfect just the way they are (although I could happily delete the clothing sections LOL)!

I feel the same way. Long lost pieces of the puzzle tumbling back into place.

See you!!!!

I'm getting to the point that I hate too much change. Say it ain't true TARGET.

Loved me some Valentine stuff from Target. Glad you told me because I was going to go check it out today. Not going now. Target loses. lol
Congrats to IBS.

WOW - I had the absolutely same reaction in Target on Friday -- and in Albuquerque, NM! No valentine section--could not find a Dove dark chocolate heart ANYwhere in the store. And that big box, junky area freaked me out! So glad I'm not the only one who reacted!!

Ugh! I thought it was just my Target that was doing that! Someone needs to start a petition!
