    My dear daughter took me to her friend's estate sale. With the high cost of quilting and sewing materials, this was so great!!

    I bought three tape measurers, a roll of stitch witchery, four large Quilter's Rule rulers and nine yards of beautiful high quality quilting fabric - all for a total cost of $10 !!

    Look at the fabric I got.

    So pretty.

    Great deal. Love the sewing room fabric. I need to show that to everyone I know so they understand what I would want in a house. Of course I would have to add 1 good size room to it. A dog room!! :-)
