    Adding to my Stash!

    DH & I spent a few hours carousing garage sales yesterday and got some GREAT fabrics! Seven pieces in the first photo are 3 yards each, another is 4 yards. The second photo's pieces are about a yard on a couple, a few fat quarters and three fat 1/8 bundles. Total fabric is about 28 yards, all for $18.00. It's now all washed, dried and folded, now just have to sort by color and convince the rest of my stash to make room!

    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    It sort of LOOKS like birds, but they're just sort of "V" shapes. Interesting fabric- it's 4 yds...paid $1 for it!

    What a great find! I've never come across fabric at a yard sale.

    Wow..yes it sure looks like you have increased your stash! I've been working on ordering beige and neutrals to mine. I never bought any before. I am not drawn to pastels...but have to have them in my stash.
