    Thrift Store Fabric Score!

    I went thrifting yesterday. I bought 30 yards of fabric for 20.00! All the fabric was 1.00 a yard but some was marked with a + sign to indicate there was a bit more than a yard. When I got it home and unwrapped the bundles it was apparent that someone didn't know how to measure fabric, on some of the smaller pieces they measured across the width. Most that was marked 1 yard + were really 2 yard pieces!

    Good for you! Can't wait to see your new projects.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.
