Default Garage sale envy pays off.

I have been watching oh so many posts of your garage sale finds and I never seem to find any thing much when I stop at sales until ....... NOW! I stopped at a sale in my own neighborhood and saw a box of fabric. I just said, "What would you take for this box of fabric?" Response, $10. Sold! I got more than 50 yards of fabric with only one piece not usable for a quilt. Most cuts are 1.5 - 3 yards each! The inspector approves of the clean and pressed additions to her future quilt resting spots.


Thanks every one for help with the photo resizing. I had to go web-small to get this to work so.... Here is my first photo in a LONG time.
