    The local Wal-Mart is closing it's fabric department soon and most $5-9 fabrcis were marked down to $.89-2.50! Even DH was liking the savings. There are some pics below but there is a whole three other bolts of pink fabrics (one Littlest Pet Shop, one bright pink sparkles and one "It's A Girl" fabric) that are already being prewashed so they're not in the pic. I also got two bolts of cotton batting and 1 bolt of fusible fleece.

    There's one fabric shown that's still on the bolt but some I took off and folded up for the pic. In all, I bought everything left off of over 12 bolts, plus some remnants, the 2 bolts of batting, 1 bolt of fusible fleece and several cuts of 3 yards each. And it was all less than $200!

    Hubby even went off on his own while I was at the cutting table to pick out some coordinating colors for me. He picked out one of the black/red/white prints, the tone on tone red and the tone on tone black, by himself. And, those weren't on sale but he insisted that it would look nice as a Valentine's Day tablerunner! I am sooo making his favorite dinner this week! :lol:

    These are some of the purples, reds, and earth colors.

    Ladies, I think DH is loving all of this praise! :lol: I couldn't find one fabric I needed for my next project so I do need to head to Joann's on Friday and he's more than encouraging now. :-D

    They say they aren't making a profit on the material.

    Isn't it wonderful to have a supportive husband. I sure hope we keep our fabric department.

    This is what I call a great shopping day. You and your DH are a good team when it come to fabric shopping.

    I just got done washing, drying and pressing the fabric and it came up to 84 yards of fabric, 3 yards of fusible fleece (I thought I had only got a yard of it :wink: ) and 12 yards of cotton batting.
