    Wanted to share pics of my thrift store haul

    Hubby and I spent the afternoon browsing our thrift stores and I finally scored on a bag of fabrics. Usually those bags for $3.50 have a lot of upholstery remnants in them so I have never purchased one before. But today I could spot lots of cottons in the bag so here is what I got for $3.50. Fifteen yards of fabrics, 8 fat quarters, loads of five inch squares, five yards of lace, some embroidery thread and a CName:  thrift shop fabrics 001.JPG

    Kitsy, you are laying the red/green paisley aside for my Christmas present, aren't you?

    Great haul. Congrats!

    Hi GrannieAnnie,

    The paisley is not part of the haul. It is the back side of a table runner I made for Christmas but loved the back so much I have kept it on the dining room table. I'll take a pic of the front for you to see.

    You did great! Funny, I have so many of those pieces that I got second handed. Isn't it fun!

    Yes deedum, it is fun. I couldn't wait to get home, had the bag ripped open in the car and squealed with glee for a few miles. Hubby really doesn't understand what fabric can do to a quilter.

    Oh, well, I've got a couple pieces pretty close. One is supposed to be a purse, one of these days. Please do send the pic. I did some table toppers, too. I hate to put them up!
