    Adding to my Stash!

    DH & I spent a few hours carousing garage sales yesterday and got some GREAT fabrics! Seven pieces in the first photo are 3 yards each, another is 4 yards. The second photo's pieces are about a yard on a couple, a few fat quarters and three fat 1/8 bundles. Total fabric is about 28 yards, all for $18.00. It's now all washed, dried and folded, now just have to sort by color and convince the rest of my stash to make room!

    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    It sort of LOOKS like birds, but they're just sort of "V" shapes. Interesting fabric- it's 4 yds...paid $1 for it!

    Wow..yes it sure looks like you have increased your stash! I've been working on ordering beige and neutrals to mine. I never bought any before. I am not drawn to pastels...but have to have them in my stash.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    Great finds! I love it when I score fabric when going to yard sales. I often find fabric for my stash at Salvation Army, Goodwill, or local thrift shops along with a quilting book once in a while :-)

    Great finds! I haven't found fabric like that at yard sales, but, recently came into a lot of quilting magazines for 25 cents a piece. If ever you can't find room in your stash for that first patriotic print, you know where to find me LOL
    Kudos!

    What a nice addition to your stash. I am sure your old stashes will make room for the new stashes and mingle together just great.
