    Fabric Jackpot!

    I have hit the jackpot on fabric for the last two weeks! I met a lady who is clearing out her mother in law's home because she is in nursing home now. Today I bought 125 yards for $25.00! Five or six pieces are large enough to use for quilt backings, lots of 2-3 yard pieces, many 1 yard pieces, and an entire bolt of blue denim (not stretchy). If my math is correct, that is $.20 per yard. She said she had four more boxes and would call me when she had them up here. All this is in addition to what I bought from her last week.

    Thanks for letting me share my happy with you today.
