Biblical Cereal and Fabric

Yeah, I have no idea what this is about. I was waiting on Lucas to get something at the store and did a double take when I saw this cereal. Never heard of the company before, and they seem to be taking themselves totally seriously. The scripture is about the ingredients. Dang it - I didn't think to read the back of the box! (I can see the commercial now: man yells to wife, "Hon, next time you're at the store, can you pick up some Ezekiel 4:9? We're almost out!")
And I went to Hancock to look for ribbon to complete the slinky cardigan, but the cute stuff wasn't wide enough. I'll check out Daphne Fabric and Lace next time I'm over there. Anybody know good purveyors of ribbon? Should I just try Hobby Lobby? Michael's? Not having girls, I've never bought ribbon. So my mom was coincidentally shopping there at the same time - gasp! How cool is that? (If we'd tried to set it up ahead of time I'd probably end up wandering around Joann's yelling "Mom?" See previous post if you don't get that.) Anyway, I hit the clearance table and got these for $3.99/yd - they're both charmeuse.
This is the shirt I have in mind for the green (Simplicity 3956).
And this one just grabbed me as a cute summery dress, but I don't have a pattern in mind. (Probably because I don't wear dresses, right?)
Okay, that's all for today. I have work to do!

If you travel anywhere near I-10 at the Tillman's Corner exit, there is a little fabric store there named Fabric Works. It faces Hwy 90 and is in the same shopping center as J&J Furniture. The ladies working there are super nice and might even tell you over the phone if they have what you are looking for. I would say that they have the most ribbon by the yard in town.

Hobby Lobby has some ribbon by the yard - not a lot. I don't even think that Michael's sells by the yard.

Oh! I forgot about that place! I saw it one time but they were closed - I'll definitely make a trip again - thanks for the tip!

Oh Becky, I'll have to check that place out.

FYI, Ezekiel also makes bread. From what I understand it is made from the sprouted grain and is supposed to be better for you. I don't know why I can remember these things but not my phone number.

LOL - Robbie, you crack me up.

Like the fabric and shirts...could see that last fabric at work, even.

Yeah, I remember that Ezekiel bread, known in our house as "that Jesus bread." We first saw and tried it in Pittsburgh, b/c everybody at the food co-op seemed to like it. I would recommend it as either kindling (if you toast it) or weather stripping. Amy

Heehee - weather stripping. Makes me want to run right out and try it. I didn't know you were from Pittsburgh...

Technically, it's Florida, but I'm mostly from SHSland. Dave and I lived up in Pgh from '98-'03. It was a great place to live (in the city, near the universities), but glad to be back in the 'ol home state again!

If I ever try the cereal, will report back. Can't seem to love most of those types...and the $7.45 per box price is not enticing. Amy
