    Husband and I went to an estate sale this morning. They advertised lots of craft items and fabric. It opened at 9 and we got there at 11. Below is what I scored. In the bin are 17 yds. of flannel, mostly 1 yd. cuts, 3 1/2 yds batiks, 5 yds. of assorted butterfly fabrics, 15 yds of assorted calicos and 7 yds of 90" wide backing plus 4 crib quilts in various stages. On the floor is 3 cuts of 60" x 6 yds, one 15 yd x 45 in. The quilt top draped in back was made for a teacher's retirement and is signed by her co-workers. Also got 3 omni rulers and the tools and thread on the floor. Not pictured is the batting, all in unopened packages - 1 king batt, 4 crib, 2 queen, 1 full and two fusible twin sizes. All for $40. Oh, and the bin, too. And she told me she had already sold a few bags of fabric.

    What a wonderful day you had. I didn't get the chance to go to anything fun today, shopping for food and a vacuum for my son. WooHoo!
