    I went directly to the fabric/craft section, and guess what I got!
    1 yard of D.Morgan fabric (For Springs Ind.) A Little Bit of Heaven
    2 yards of vintage pink fabric with blue sprays of flowers on them
    3 fat quarters of blue/white flower/stripe fabric
    2 yards of Robert Kaufman 50's repo fabric
    1 3/4 yard small whale light brown cord fabric
    3 yards of red, green & white homespun
    Total price? $3.98 Today turned out to be a pretty good day!
    If I were you I'd make sure to put some leaky pens in his shirt pockets so you'd get called in to rescue him more often. ;)

    PLEASE tell him what a blessing he was today! SO many times what we think are goof-ups end up being blessings in disguise. He will be SO proud of you, a real Proverbs 31 woman...searching for "good stuff" from everywhere, and "red" coverings for her family. That's you sugar-bee!

    Don't you just love that feeling?! I donate clothing and things to the Salvation Army, and when I do I like to go in and see what they have in their store. I always check the fabric section. One time I hit it just right as a worker was unloading a cart full of novelty fabric--new and in good condition! Apparently someone cleaned out their sewing room or no longer sewed! I happened to be the only one near it at the time. I walked out with stacks of fabric that I am still using years later to make things for my grandchildren and to use in charity quilts. This only happened once, but I still remember how good it felt!

    Would someone please educate me about SArmy and Goodwill having fabric? Is there a particular section for crafts/sewing, etc.? I've never been in one so I'm totally ignorant but willing to learn. Please?

    I have the same question. I have never seen fabric at the Goodwills around here. I have seen sheets, etc on hangers in the "housewares" section, but never yardage.

    Good haul. With $ left over you can go a couple more times. What a wonderful exciting day.

    I have found them with the linens, on hangers. Also, they have a section for crafts, I have found bags of fabric in there as well. If I go to a new one, I just ask, most of the time they are very willing to help you locate what you are looking for! I love giving the fabric a new good home. I also thanked DH for the lunch money when he got home, and told him I had a high fiber lunch! I made him a nice dinner too!

    I laughed so hard when I read about the "high fiber lunch" You two sound like you are deeply in love with each other and I'm just so happy for you. In this day when we hear/read about all the hate and dissatisfaction in the world....you're a breath of fresh air!! Thanks so much for sharing.
