    I'm going to an auction Wednesday. A quilter passed away and her family is having an auction of all her sewing supplies. Long arm, new machines, bolts of fabric, books, all of it. I don't need anything but I will find something I think I need.
    Got fabric?

    Wow, I love auctions and have yet to locate one with fabric! Altho I did get a hand pieced/hand quilted block that had been framed - in a junk box for $20.00. No one wanted it! Except me of course. Also got a 60x60 hand pieced/hand quilted quilt in a frame as well at another for $25.00. I love them both - so glad you were able to participate and come away with great finds!
    Quilting makes me happy!..
