    Fabric Score!

    I have had several successful finds either in garage or CL sales so I am finally posting some pics. The first two pics are from an estate sale for a total of 32 yards of cotton (the tropical fish is a vintage Hoffman print) and 4 yards of maybe cotton blend (doing burn test later when it is not so hot outside). I asked the daughter, "How much is this amount of fabric?" and she said, "Five bucks or make an offer- we just want it out of here. But one question, are you actually going to sew it or store it like my mom did?" I said, "Sew it". Handed her five and smiled. The third is a pic of a box of FQs including 41 Amy Butler Gypsy Caravan FQs that I got from a quilter who said she needed to trim her hoard-her words. They were 10 for a $1 so I bought a bunch- HAHA! I did buy other yardage and a kit from her but it is already put in the stash. But washing, drying, pressing, folding and storing them takes a lot of time. So off to sew now as I promised.

    Good for you! And I hope you do get to make something with all of them. I have enough to last a lifetime, but it never feels like enough, if you know what I mean...

    Yes it is hot here so I have fans on in addition to AC even while sewing. Just making tote bags from the fabric I got so I can give to the local food banks.
