    I went to a garage sale today and bought 47 yards of fabric for $24! I am going back tomorrow for more. She used to sew and has it all in storage and is going to get more tonight.

    WHOO HOO!

    Anytime you can get 47 yds of material for about $1.97 a yd. is a GREAT day..Lucky you....
    Families are like old quilts....although they tend to unravel at times...each can be stitched back together with love.
