I’m having the worst time…I keep stopping at the thrift store on my trips to taking Kramer to chemo and I keep seeing fabric. It’s such a temptation for me to buy but right now. I’m not sewing any so why am I buying fabric. UGH.
I think it’s just a desire to feel normal….honestly, in the past I never passed up a fabric deal.
This day…I did restrain some. There was more fabric I could have bought…but I didn’t. So I’m calling this progress. I think I spent $12.50 for all of the fabric you see.
Non tagged pieces are 50 cents each. The other was $2. I keep looking for homespuns and ticking fabrics to finish some cross stitch pieces. Most of these were 2 yards worth each.
I grabbed this but ended up a little disappointed.
I loved that it was dinosaurs and opened it up to find the blue was all flannel. I don’t know why but I rarely sew flannel. I think it’s because dog hair sticks to it….
That will go in the charity fabric box and will get sent out.
Here’s the next bag….
I picked this one as I liked the fabric on top. It could work with my Civil War fabrics.
It had lots of 10″ squares in it. I’ll put them in the charity fabric box too.
The next bag was $2. I bought this one for Kayla. Do you remember she is making a mosaic type quilt with pictorial fabrics.
Ah…not as much pictorial fabric as I thought. Bummer. She can pick out what she wants next time she’s home and we’ll put the rest in the charity fabric box.
This one was a bigger bag..thus the $3 tag.
There was a lot in it.
In there were these two pieces….both a yard each so the $3 was well worth it.
I ended up keeping the pile on the left…the pile on the right will go off to charity quilters.
I have such fun buying scrap bags of fabric. SUCH fun….I always get my money’s worth and I alway end up with plenty to donate on too. I call it a win-win. A lady gets a cleaned out sewing room. The thrift store gives out money from their proceeds from my purchases. I get fabric and I get fabric into the hands of charity quilters and people in need get quilts. So does that make it a win-win-win-win-win?? Maybe.
