    Great deal off Craigslist!

    I got a rotary cutter, extra blades, a 18x24 cutting mat and an 18x6 ruler for $15. They also threw in a thick wooden yardstick, 4 FQ, and yards and yards of upholstery fabric and 4 patterns. Everything looks brand new!
    My husband bought me a 24x36 cutting mat and a bunch of rulers from Joanne.com but I don't get them until Christmas!! Who knows? I might start making quilt tops again after all?!

    I got a great deal on craigslist today. I found a very sturdy desk for $15. I'm going to find somebody to do a cutout and set my Janome 6600 down flush with the surface of the desk.

    Yay, us! Craigslist is awesome! I think everything in my sewing room is from CL or the thrift store!

    Sounds like you hit the jackpot! I think this is a sign that you will be making more tops soon!

    what will you use upholstry fabric for?
    Do not follow where the path may lead. Go, instead, where there is no path and leave a trail.

    A few years ago, I bought some chairs from a restaurant, thinking they’d last forever. Well, the frames and cushions have held up well, but the vinyl that is covering the seats is way past worn. I am thinking about either re-covering the cushions with the fabric and maybe a tablecloth. My kitchen is off white/red, and the fabric is an orange-red. If it looks terrible, I don’t know what I’ll do with it. Coincidently, my couch is lipstick red, so I can’t make throw pillows either!

    I don’t even like red that much, but you wouldn’t know it by looking at my house! Even my shower curtain is red!

    Congrats on the great find! I sometimes will check Craigslist regularly, then stop for awhile if I don't find anything of interest. The last time that happened, I found two featherweights that had been on for a few days!! Oh, was I upset!!! The one I contacted I didn't hear back from, so assumed it went fast, but the other one was about an hour north of me, and they still had it!!! Craigslist is a great place, but you have to keep up with it, and you have to be cautious!

    How exciting! Yeppers, sounds like you'll be doing tops mighty soon. Good luck.
    Maybe some day it will all be nice and fancy!

    Slowly getting back into the swing of things!
