Default I'm no longer a virgin !!!!

Went to an Estate Sale on Saturday. Deceased lady was member of numerous local Quilt Guilds. My friend and I SCORED.... Got lots of fabric, cutters, books, patterns some fake plants, etc. Went back SUNDAY (1/2 price day) bot the rest of the fabric, more books, another plant for patio and a HUGE Christmas wreath. I have been washing and ironing for 3 days now... The largest piece is 7 yards on down to NEW fat quarters. (and some I didn't even count in the yardage cause weird shapes) Most of the fabric had not been cut in to. Now the GOOD NEWS! I spent about $60.00 for the 2 day spree and have over 80 yards of GOOD BRAND NAME NEW fabric..... And ALL lovely colors and patterns. OH MY ! Talk about Christmas.... I was always in AWE of everybodies yard sale "finds" on the board. Patience my friends, YOUR turn will come when you least expect it...... HAPPY QUILTING !!!!!

That is great...don't you want to keep buying at things like this? I guess you did make it twice! That is so fun.

I have yet to find a good deal either. Well I guess I did on my machine but not on fabric yet. I need a stash!
