    Started out heading to Joanns.. long drive, over an hour, grumpy daughter ended that idea. i had some things in the van to drop off to goodwill so decided to stay closer to home and go do that, while there decided to go look around just to be out of the house for awhile.. my Wonderful Fine was almost 7 yds of muslin for 6.00. I was just plondering thru some blankets and stuff when I barely ran across it.. I thought I was gonna break out in dance and sing right there. i was so tickled, here I was going to Joanns not only for some material, but was wanting some muslin. depending on what the material i need for my youngest daughters quilt i'm making. With 8 kids still at home i really have to count my pennies. Was dreading going to joanns anyway the drive and always walking out with a wish list a mile long...gets depressing. so i had a happy day, even with a grumpy toddler....

    Sounds like God sent a blessing your way today! Who would have thought it would be a blessing to have a grumpy toddler?? okay... so maybe the grumpy part wasn't a blessing, but it got the job done! Happy Day.. that's great.. and so much cheaper than an hour drive and paying retail prices!

    I stopped at the GW on the way home, found a couple of receiving blankets to make bibs but that was about it. I did find a brand new jacket from the Disney Store for my DGS. He loves Tigger!

    Great find. I will have to try Goodwill. Have donated a lot to them but haven't shopped there. Thanks for the idea.
