    I got 12 loaves of good bread and 8 yards of fabric! I went to Mill End Textiles for the focus fabric for my DGDs baby quilt. I've been searching for this for months. I was concerned about a red/white fabric because the main blocks are yellowed antique embroidery. But my daughter came by last night and said that she likes that because it points out the age of the blocks. I got 3 yds of the red/white farm animal fabric so I can use it for the back also. I had a 60% off coupon. After going to the day old bread store, I also went to the thrift shop and found 5 yds of double knit for housedresses for only $3. It was a great shopping day :)

    I love the farm animals fabric. Does it have a label that you can tell me who made it?

    Sounds like you had a great day. The only thing I got yesterday for $15.00 was a few gallons of gas.
