    My turn for a (small) haul

    the local senior center had a crafts program and gift shop. They are having to leave that small space so are selling all their supplies. I needed smaller pieces in certain colors, so I went and filled a couple of bags, and got some books, for $8. First haul was 7.5 pounds of fabric.

    Next day I felt I really, really needed to go back!! Went back and spent $20 this time, got more fabric, including larger pieces at about $1 a yard, a rotary cutter for $1, and more books at 2 for 25 cents!! I think I got about 20 pounds of fabric, which works out to about 80 yards worth.

    And I bravely resisted all the yarn!

    I am soooo envious!!! Congratulations on your haul ;o)
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    Sweet! What a score.
    People who start projects and never finish them are cooler
    than people who never start projects at all.
