    Huge score on fabric!

    The other day I scored huge on free fabric from an estate. There were tons and I do mean TONS of fabric that several friends and I helped sort out for several charities. Well, we got to keep whatever we wanted too. I bet there is about 100 yards here.

    Here's what I came home with.

    Wow, congratulations. I see some very pretty stuff and what looks like some pieces big enough for backings.

    Most of it is in 2 to 6 yard pieces, so it will be great for backings

    WOW!!! I don't know how you could choose what to take and what to leave- great idea to get it for backings And now that you have extra room in the house you can spread out a bit
    To keep your mind fresh- learn one new thing a day !

    Another score! You and Amanda's Grandma...and on othersides of the country, too. We never find good estate sales around here....the ones that have fabric...it is stuff you wouldn't want.

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

    I'm itching to, but am still cleaning my house and getting my son to move his things out. Luckily it's almost out! :-) There's an empty space where a rocker used to be (until yesterday) so my house feels bigger!

    The bad news is - time flies.
