    Hubs went to yard sales this morning. I had too much to do so I stayed home. He found all of this fabric for 4.00! I have already cut it into fat quarters. I got 140 out of it! He pretty much knows what to look for by now. :lol:

    I am totally JEALOUS! It looks like luscious little fat quarters that you just gotta have in the LQS. Keep that man around, If he can keep finding you such fantastic bargains.

    I cut into fat quarters because everything I make is appliques and small applique blocks so it fits the wonder under this way without wasting. :)

    Hummmm.. I went to a really nice yard sale once some years ago and it was like a community yard sale and I had a very close relative who lived in the community, And there on a very pretty and decorated table I saw a lamp for $15.00 that I had paid a little over $100 as an anniversary gift for her. It has nothing to do with my taste as she had picked it out at one time and I thought, this is great, cause I know she will love this. She loved it for two years. growl.....

    WOW, that's a wonderful DH you have there. Like Darlene, mine won't go to yard sales, so I have to do it myself. If you don't have a good use for the orange, maybe we could work out a trade. Smiles and hugss.
