The story about the blue monogram


So I have a decorated Y monogram in white, black and gold and thought it was time to add another! :) I had my eye on this cute blue one at Smiggle but cringed at the $5.95 price tag.[I like to buy things on sale...*winks*].

A couple of weeks later, it was on sale at 3 for $10. I was all set to buy but could only find 2 pieces that were in good condition [Yes, I'm a fussy buyer even when an item is on sale...*LOL*].

Well, it was a good call because Smiggle finally decided they were charging an arm and leg and the clearance price was 5 for $5! And all in good condition too! Yay! :)

Can you guess the colour of my next Y monogram project?
