    Went to a swap meet @ a community college an got over 30 yards of fabric plus a bag of scraps for $22. I said a prayer before we left and boy did God give me a good answer! At the first vendor I bought 11 1/2 yard for $9. 4 yards of a beautiful pink flannel fabric, 4 yards of a flannel sport print and 4 of a green plaid coudoroy. It wasn't till I got home that I noticed it was exclusive Jo-Anne's fabric. 2nd vendor had fabric for 50 cents a yard. Bought 8 yards of a variety of fabrics plus a $3 bag of scraps. There is a variety of peach fabrics that will be enough to make a baby quilt for my 1st grandchild due in Oct. Its a girl! Last vendor I spend $7 for 11 1/2 yards of fabric. So I had a real good day. And on top of that I bought 2 cast iron skillets ( yesterdays topic ) for only $10 for both.

    Good job.

    I bought a cast iron dutch oven for $25 at a flea market. A new one is way over $50, so I'm happy.
