    Ssssssssssssssscore!!!!!!

    Today, my friend Sharon and I went to a longarm class in the nearest town. While there, we were told about an estate sale. The woman that had died was the former owner of a quilt fabric store.....one I used to LOVE to go to. We left after class and found the home. She HAD had 1800 bolts of fabric. All that was left was ROOMS full of fabric cuts. Would you believe one "room" was a walk-in closet in a hallway??? It was a gorgeous home, BTW. The picture below is what I got....... Now get this..... $.50 PER CUT! My largest was 5 yard piece and the smallest was bigger than a fat quarter!! I got 56 cuts & a pattern for $25.25. I found out when I got home that he'd miscounted -- he said I had 49 cuts.... I'd LOVE to go back again -- but I have no idea where I'm stashing this one......I think we just lost the guest room Name:  P1030323.JPG

    I must be missing something.. I don't think many people where I am quilt.. It's very rarely to see any estate sales with fabric, or mchines.. The one I went to was a fabric hoarder.. and everything was $2.00 a yard.. She had so much stuff, and nothing was touched since she passed away seven years previous.. I had such sensor overload, I didn't know where to begin.. I ended up buying a couple of pieces, and bought rulers, and templates at $.50
