    I was out and about today running a few errands, going to the Garden Center and getting fuel in the car and on the way home I pulled off the road because I had forgotten to make a phone call while I was in town (we live about 10 miles out). The road I happened to turn up had tons of yard sale signs and one estate sale sign. I was tempted to follow the yard sale signs but went to the estate sale instead. Wasn't much of interest housewares wise but I did make a super find: and all for $1.50

    Looks well loved and definately needs a good washing. This was all done by hand

    There wasn't much fabric but the box alone was worth it

    Someone or something pointed you in the right direction. They just knew you would find the quilting things and they would go to a good home.
