    My Yard Sale Haul

    I was headed to do errands and came across this yard sale. BOY...am I glad I stopped. I got two huge boxes of fabric for $40.00. Each cut had the measurement pinned to it. I counted out over 150 yards in just one box. So guess the second box had about the same amount. One piece was 17 yards. I figure I got about 300 yards of various prints at a price of about 14 cents per yard/ YEAH FOR ME!!!!!

    WOO HOO! I'm proud of you! THIS is the way to buy fabric! lol
    I think our yard/garage sales are about done for the year here in the NW. =(
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    Awesome haul!! The one and only time I found something sewing related at a garage sale ... was the time I found an almost new Husqvarna serger. When the guy took it off the shelf and out of the box to show me, he tripped on wireing and smashed it against his landscape blocks. I felt sooo bad for him!!
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.
