    Finally, a garage sale score!

    I found a listing for a garage sale on my local Craigslist yesterday. It was titled "Sewer's Dream Sale". I've been on a fabric diet but thought I could score a good deal on zippers so off I went. Oh, my! The seller's MIL had passed away and she had worked at Joann's for over 15 years. There was so much fabric, I tried to restrain myself. There were no scraps, everything was a 1 yd cut or more. I made my selections and took them to pay. The lady said $20, I said "No Problem!" I brought them home and washed and ruler folded them. Each fabric that I chose was 3 yards all the way up to 8 yards. The last light blue fabric on the right is an 8 yard cut of flannel. I measured and I got 70+ yards of fabric for $20!!! The last picture is the four fabrics that are my favorites out of the whole lot!
