I’m going to go a bit away from crochet today – although, I will say I was at Hobby Lobby looking for yarn and picking up a gift for a friend (something I needed to work on).
As I said, I was at Hobby Lobby. A friend and I were meeting to do a bit of a pass off (which I will discuss at a later date) of a project. The man and the kids went looking around and soon, I caught up with them.
And yes, those are really Christmas decorations.
We caught the stockers mid-stock with the bows and wreaths, but just to prove that it seems our Hobby Lobby has gone completely insane, there were about 8 aisles of Christmas decorations followed by Thanksgiving/fall decorations.

Have they gone mad?
There was truly about a 5×5 foot space of July 4th decorations – the remainder of the aisles on that side of the store started with fall and quickly progressed into Christmas.
The wall of ornaments is up – as you can see behind the Man. I caught him mid “looking around in disbelief.”
The funny thing was – several of the customers were talking about it too. They were just as shocked as we were. One of the women that openly talked with us said they actually had started putting up the holiday items around two weeks ago. Two things here: 1) holiday decorations in the first/second week of June and 2) why the heck haven’t I been to Hobby Lobby in the last 2 weeks?
I will say though… from the progression from the tiny display for Independence Day through the fall decorations, I was a bit miffed that there was nothing to celebrate Halloween.
I was needing a new skull for my autumnal centerpiece.
