    Found this on craigslist the first of the week. Worried all week long somebody would get to it before I had a chance. Went today and this guy had 14 boxes from his grandmother's estate. Most is 40-50's fabric, all good shape, even some blocks handsewn. Most is at least 1 yard, some larger that I could piece for quilt backs. I got all of this for $140. Plan to make scrappy's all winter. Had one box of polyester if anybody is interested in poly PM me.

    14 boxes full of fabric

    It was in the Boulder craigslist...It was quite interesting to get there, goat trail for the road, up on Sugarload above Boulder. What we won't do to get a bargain.

    Yep, cattle dog, one of 3. Dally is the name, making mom crazy is the name of the game. He is a love but he does try my patience at times.

    You are a lucky gal. Nothing like an old fashioned scavenge hunt!

    I've got one, Katie who is deaf and an Aussie Shep/Lab mix, Icee who is deaf and 90% blind. Possibly getting a Red Heeler later this week!
