The thrift stores continue to be a bit of a solace to me. It’s the few minutes that I can hunt and look and forget the changes that our lives have taken in the last few months. I swear I feel a bit like a bloodhound sniffing out the wanted the items.
Even though I haven’t been sewing, I’m still looking at fabric. It’s an old habit that’s just not dying with my lack of sewing. It’s so hard when prices are so cheap!
This is a yard and a half so I can make two pillow cases with it. I think the childcare kiddos are getting pillow cases this year for Christmas so I now I have some construction fabric that I can easily sew up for them.
I couldn’t resist this piece….
I’ll be adding it to the funky calico prints in my collection. I still don’t know what I’m going to do with them. All I know is that it’s going to be one fun quilt.
I couldn’t resist the black stripe. There are four yards here. It was $2 for the bundle. I still want to make that the black and white stripe quilt so this will go with that fabric. I think I have enough but I don’t want to pass up a 4 yard piece just in case I don’t.
So the fabric thrifter in me is living on!! I look at it this way, if I don’t end up using it, I’ll pass it on to a charity. Either way, it will eventually get used.
