Stash Report

I continue to stop at the thrift store when I can….It’s my little dose of “something I can afford”.  I’ve talked to other thrifters and we all agree that there is something really wonderful about walking into a store and knowing that I can afford whatever I want in the entire store.  I don’t know if it’s a power trip or what.  It’s something I have thought several times in the past…silly, I know.

Here’s what I purchased….It came from several places over a few weeks of time.

The one way to the left is from one of my childcare moms.  She thrifts at the same store I do and found the fabric.  It is all sayings about cancer.

The neutral one below has the sizes listed on the tag and the stars was a yard’s worth.  These were $1 each.

Below, the patriotic one is a half yard and…. the aqua polka dots (I adore it) is two yards worth.  These were 50 cents each.

The stripe…hmm…that wasn’t supposed to be here.  That was a free-be from Kayla.  I’m adding it to my gray collection.
My favorite in the bunch in the polka dot…no surprise.  Polka dots are my thing.  How can you not smile when you see a polka dot?  I sure can’t.

I haven’t been sewing a lot lately so I should probably hold off on buying fabric but oh well…this too shall pass and I’ll be sewing more again.

  1. Great stash enhancers Jo! It would be impossible to pass up that fabric at those prices!!! Yes I lone polka dots too!!!

  2. Buy what you can use. It’s a bit of normal in a not so normal life for all of you just now, Heck buy it just because! Hugs to all the Kramer’s.t

    Your vice is buying materials; mine is buying counted cross stitch patterns. Not that I NEED them. It’s just when I see one, I say to myself that would be perfect for (a certain person’s name pops up). Then I KNOW that I have to buy it for a gift fir that certain person. A friend told me that my stitching is my ministry. I’m positive that your charity quilts are your ministry too, Jo. I do keep a few, but most are given as gifts. Let’s keep spreading the Love of Jesus, Jo. I thank you for bringing your family’s health and doings to us, I wish mine were as closely knitted as yours. May God bless you, Jo and may God bless your family!

  4. You get such great pieces of fabric at great prices! Lucky you! At my local thrift store last week they had 2 bags of fabric about 1/2 gal. sized stuffed full, but they put everything and anything together. By the time I pay the 3.99 or 4.99 they are asking for it and sort through it I would be left with very little usable fabric, so enjoy your splurges! You will use them in due time, and I think that just browsing is a great stress reducer, and heaven knows you need the relief. I went through chemo and radiation with both of my parents and my stepdaughter, so I understand a little bit of what you are going through. As always keeping you and your family covered in prayer.

    I haven’t been thrift shopping lately but with your reports I might take the time to go. It’s fun. My joy is finding old books in good condition and reading them when I don’t feel well enough to see. Prayers for you all.
