    Here in Washington they have them inside....smile.....I scored at the local school sale and got over 13 yds in large pieces (one is 9 yds. ) and a bunch of cottons and flannels in pices about equal to fat quarters and paid $6.00.

    Never look down on anyone, unless you are helping them up.

    Great find, it has warmed up in the south and I am glad garage sales are back in bussiness. Now if we can just stop the hail and wind, it is hard to shop when you are being blown away.
    With quilters for friends, I will always be warm.

    That is wonderful! We live just south of Sylvia K in Texas. We look at the newspapers Thurs., Fri. and Sat. to see what is for sale at garage sales.
    Right now we are in Indiana, and it is COLD here! Saw a little snow when we got here early this morning.

    Nice haul, i went to an estate sale two weeks ago, she had at least a ton of linens, all kinds of sewing supplies, buttons, pins and needles, i picked up a box that i thought had linen fabric in it and it was a set of embroidered pillow cases, have no clue what i will do with them, not my thing. Her house was so full, i am surprised the fire dept, wasn't called, cause if their was a fire in that house we all would have gone up in smoke, it was a townhouse. Any way it was fun

    We have had a warm winter even for us! Lately it has been in the 60's to 80's (F). We are already mowing the lawn and the cows are turning down hay (thank goodness!) for the green pastures. Our fruit trees are blooming. Of course, it will probably be a hot summer. It normally gets over 100* F here for several weeks during the summer. I just bought a screen door for my quilting shed so that I don't have to turn that airconditioner on until I absolutely have to! Here are a few pictures I took this evening before sundown. The first is our apricot tree starting to bloom, the second is one of our cows placidly enjoying the green grass and the last is a picture of my quilting shed where I've been most of the day with the new screen door propped up against it.
