    Feel like I just won the lottery lol

    So, scrolling through FB a bit ago, and on one of the destash groups I am in I see this:

    Scrappy flower squares- $25 for all

    35 8 1/2 inch squares....
    50 6 1/2 inch squares....
    150 5 inch squares....
    200 4 1/2 inch squares....
    Free shipping

    Mine! Mine, mine, mine *all* mine! lol.

    Okay, now I shall go to bed and try to sleep the next 4-5 days it will take to get here. That seems reasonable, yeah?

    That is a score. Be sure and share photo's of the fabric when it arrives. And not to have to cut it is even better.

    Sounds like a great deal. It always feels good to get a bargain.

    Awesome...I would have never thought to look on FB for fabric. Please share your fabric when you get it.
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.

    How exciting and what a great purchase! There are some great patterns out there for floral fabrics - I'm thinking the watercolor quilts and I remember that someone here posted a beautiful log cabin made from florals. Can't wait to see what you got!
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    I saw the same post....but I read it as each grouping was separate for $25. 35 8 1/2" was separate from 50 6 1/2" from 150 5" from 200 4 1/2" squares. Wonder which of us was right?? I think the wording of the ad was confusing.

    Those fabric destashing groups are awesome! I just got done buying a load of flannel from someone for very cheap. Going to make 'lovie' blankets with them. Sometimes I sell fabric there too.

    Facebook. There are a number of fabric destashing groups. I should only post items for sale, certainly not buy anymore!
    I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it difficult to plan the day.
