I hit up the thrift store looking for goodies. I haven’t been sewing a lot but I can’t help still looking for fabric. My philosophy is that if I don’t ever get it sewn, that’s okay. It will go on to a charity group and it will get sewn. I’ve already talked to my family and when I pass, anything left that they don’t want should sell or send it on to charity. I had fun just hunting it down even if I never do get to sewing it.
This day was a pretty good day. One place where I thrift marks the bigger pieces of fabric but the smaller pieces are not marked and cost 50 cents.
What I was happiest to find….THIS! Do you know what it is??? Cross stitch fabric! There’s about a yard and a half and it was only $1. I would hate to know how much that would have cost had I gotten it at a store!
My next favorite find…BATIKS…50 cents each.
Here are the bigger chunks of fabric…..These were all $1.50 each. The top one I was excited about. I think there is enough for a sashing there. I say it all the time and it’s definitely true. I have lots of fat quarter sized pieces of fabric and some backings but none of the in between sizes of fabric. The green has enough for a backing…yahoo. Any day a quilt backing costs $1.50 is a good day.
That was my haul for the this day. Thrifting is so fun. One day I go…I get nothing fabric related and instead clothes for the grand kids….the next time I buy an old dresser…the next time frames for my cross stitch. I hate going to regular stores. All Wal-Marts have pretty much the same things…all JcPenny’s have the same things. I know exactly what to expect. Thrifting….is always unexpected!!
