    Look what $2.50 bought!!

    I live in a small town with lots of retirees and with garage & estate sales I've found some great bargains. My latest score is the best ever. All the fabric was plastic wrapped in large bundles and priced at 50 cents each. I bought 3 bundles. A box with 7 cones of thread cost $1.00. Each bundle weighed over 4 pounds. There are two 5 yard pieces with the rest ranging from 1 yard to 4 inch blocks. There was one 12 inch pinwheel block. I see several scrappy quilts in my future.

    As I was taking pictures, my fabric inspector arrived. That handsome little fellow is Jasper, a 3 year old red Abyssinian.

    Major score. Good job. Love your Jasper. I hear Abyssinians are quite the characters and very high energy.
