    Send me a private msg and will give you phone number or such. What part of town do you live in? Maybe you would like to join us at the Chaffee Libary on Mondays.

    The Goodwill pound store is off I-10 and Edgewood St on Lenox Ave and open about 9 am until 3 and then Sat until noon. They roll out bins on and off while your there, different items, some new with tags on like jackets, blouses, men's pants and etc. There are shelves with bins that have other items like knick knack, kitchen items, toys in bins, shoes several bins some new and several bins of books. You need to try and get a grocery cart to shop, some times you have to ask someone checking out for their cart when they are finish with it. On thrift stores look at hanging sheets and you will find pieces of material. I have also gotten curtains or valances and taken them apart and used the material for my quilt. So many things you can do with what is available. Just think QUILT when you shop, maybe a cotton large skirt with a wonderful pattern, cheap, can be washed and then open seams and let your mind go dancing...
    I LOVE your avatar!!!!! I've never tried my hand at Hawaiian applique, but it's on my list!! :D :thumbup:

    Last Friday we decided not to visit the pound store for a change and went to an estate sale a street away from my house. I asked the gal who let the next few of us in from the long line if there was any quilt materials or such. She stated she had no idea. Well on the 3rd bedroom there it was, bags of material or some with tape around it $2.00, $1.50 and etc. Naturally I had to help my self. Also found a small quilt with pillow to match in the oh what was that name Dresden plate I do believe, $8.00 for set. Well my DIL is starting to quilt now...yeah!! and wanted to do this pattern so will give this set to her. Then we went to another part of town that had a new Hospice Thrift shop and low and behold baggies of material, 25 cents, 50 and $1.00 nice bags full of different kinds of cute materials.
    So guess I did not miss the Pound store this week, I need to stop shopping and more sewing????? Do you think??
