Default Maybe I am a hoarder.....

I went to a garage sale today. The quilter had just moved to assisted living. The daughter handed me a grocery bag and said $2.00 a bag. I filled two bags and picked out three books and spent a grand total of $5.00. There is a total of 56 yards of quilt shop quality. I felt a little guilt until the guy working said, jokingly I think, If I came back at 3 he would give me my money back if I took everything that was left. I told him, my hubby would never let that happen. LOL!

CHA-Ching you hit the jackpot! I love having extra fabric to play with. The inexpensive but good quality fabric frees me up to explore and indulge my creative urges. Have fun!!

Don't feel guilty. At least they were selling her stash (oh, OK, practically giving it away) instead of throwing it all out. I'm sure she'd rather have it going to someone who is going to use it than have it in the landfill. And now you get to think of all the possibilities in that stash. What fun.

What a great find!

I'd definately go back. If it's something (leftovers) you can't use, you can pass them on to someone that can.
