Stash Report

I was thrifting again.  I honestly haven’t found much lately at the thrift stores in the fabric department.  They have someone new taking care of the fabric and I don’t like how she manages it compared to the last gal.  The prices are cheaper..but it’s not as nice as organized as it used to be.  Oh well.  I’m still going to shop that area.  It’s only an observation I made.

Here’s proof I’ll still be buying for the thrift store.  I bought these things…


I was most happy about this…It’s cross stitch fabric.  It’s evenweave.  I’m guessing Monaco.  There is 2 yards worth.  It’s white but I’ll throw it in some coffee tea dye and then it will ready for stitching.  I’ve lucked out lately on finding cross stitch fabric!

I got this…It’s flannel and I typically don’t get a lot of flannel BUT….this is enough to make pillowcase and I plan to make pillowcases for the kiddos for Christmas.  Carver is currently obsessed with Frozen and that’s where this character on the fabric is from.
I found some ticking and I’m thinking that I’ll use this to finish some cross stitch projects.  
I spent $2 total.  It’s amazing how busy that $2 could keep me.  Imagine how much stitching could be done on that $1 piece of cross stitch fabric.

    Another nice haul! It’s not often you can find a decent amount of cross stitch fabric!

    What a haul. That ticking would make a great tote bag! I need to send you a picture of one I made which uses upholstery strapping for the handle. Market Tote. Or recover a stool or ottoman with it. I love a good ticking stripe.

    Fun fabric finds! I stopped by a thrift store yesterday and found a cute pink fabric with butterflies, 5 yards! Will make a great backing for something in the future, and only six bucks! Also picked up a couple other nice pieces. I should blog about it, lol. It’s been a while, but you’ve inspired me.

    What wonderful finds for a day when you get time to sew or need to start another crossstitch. It’s good to look ahead when you can.
