    Ok. I did it again I hit the thrift shop today. It is a good thing there are only 2 shops in my town and 1 I don't shop cause I don't like paying new prices for used stuff. I got a bag full of scraps for one dollar. Thought I would share, if you all ever get tired of my thrift shop finds just tell me. I used an orange to show how much is there.

    They tried to raise the prices on fabric when they thought WM was taking out the fabrics and no one would buy it. So the prices have dropped back down. BTW our WM kept some fabrics.

    I think it's great when a quilter finds a buy like you did.
    I just wished I could find buys like that.

    Good for you. You know how to burn test for cottons? I do that on fabric I'm not sure about.
