    I see people on the board skiting about their cheap fabric finds now it is my turn. I know it is not a lot of fabric but to me it was worth the money. At one of the local thrift shops I found 4 meters ofblack on white cotton fabric and also over a meter of brightly colored cotton fabric. It was $1 a meter but with 3 books it cost me $5 all up. I have to wash it as they are dirty form being in a bin outside the shop.

    I like that pink fabric. Definitely bright. The other is cool too as I like black and white fabric. :) That was a good deal too.

    I do not know at the moment what I will use them in. It was too good to leave behind.
