    the St. Vincent De Paul store

    app. 14 yards of unbleached muslin. 45" I think. It went straight into the washer because it smells slightly. 2 pieces about 7 yd. each.

    One real scrap that's green and brown print on green---for a vine if I do the applique monkey that I'd like try--it really is a scrap, but plenty for a vine.

    Another piece of heavier weight cotton that is black on white. May be a purse.

    Several pieces of knit of unknown content---probably 3 summer dresses for me, and one very light weight snuggle sack for August grandbaby.

    One piece of stuff that's big enough for a couple shopping bags-----for baby shower gifts, maybe.

    I couldn't believe it when I found the muslin. I'd have paid $5 for each piece and been happy. When she said the whole pile was $5----------I didn't argue!

    I'm going to need someone to keep my nose to the grindstone. Just makes me want to stop a few more places.

    There was a vest panel marked $5 that I told the gal she could keep. Anyway, the rest of the stuff didn't have a price. She just piled it up and asked "$5", I wasn't arguing.
