    Last night I was on Kijiji and looking for sewing and fabric items.
    Well, I hit the Jackpot! Sadly, a lady is closing her business to retire. I stopped in her store this morning and everything was on sale at deep discount prices.

    I got:
    3 meters of fleece (yellow with flowers)
    2 meters of lady bug fabric (dark blue with bugs)
    1 meter of a vine print (pale blue with green vines)
    And the best for last
    50 meters - a brand new bolt of white cotton/poly blend!!!! :-D

    I do have a birthday coming up after she closes the doors but I'm keeping my fingers crossed the DH will have pity on me. He was going to get me a gift certificate for the LQS...think I'd like to go back there instead!

    Question: Is it normal to get a rush after a buy like that?! I normally detest shopping.

    Rush on!! I think that is normal. Only wish I could run across a rush, score, or other incredible deal. Great job! Very sorry for the store owner though. That must be heartbreaking for her.

    Just thinking about going shopping for fabric makes my heart skip a beat and my hands shake. So yes I think the rush is normal.

    If you don't get a rush over that, someone needs to check for a pulse.

    There is shopping and then ....there is shopping. Fabrics make the difference.

    Yes...or else someone bringing me a suitcase of fabric--or two, like happened last month. :) I saved it for last--after serving the guests dinner, then cleaning up, and then finally, went over and started looking at all the goodies they brought me.

    (It was a church group and they asked for donations from people at church.) Most of it was not the highest quality, but all of it usable. I sudivided it into solids and prints--one suitcase each, to take it upstairs to try to find places for it in my sewing room. They know I do a lot of charity quilts and I was thankful. Of course, included in that was some I bought on ebay and had send to them or bought here and had a couple of ladies send them fabric to bring to me.

    It was better than Christmas!
