We interrupt this program...

Sorry, we have to take a little break from the book review so I can brag about my fabric score today! You know when the classified's ad says "Quilting material from my mom's closet and some of grandma's too" that its going to be good. But I never could have expected this...

See this pile of of quilt squares. 50 cents. Yep, 50 cents for ALL of them! I have no idea what to do with them, but aren't they beautiful?

And this pile? These were all of the scraps. Some are clothes that have been taken apart, some are parts of pillowcases, some just plain old scraps. How much for all of these you ask? FREE!! At this point I was starting to feel a little guilty, so I actually spent money on the rest...


Ten whole dollars to be exact! The bad part is I didn't need one more scrap of fabric in my house. But honestly, how could I not, right? After I go through it all (and my mom goes through it, and my sister, and probably you too Sara, right?) then I will list some of it on etsy. We'll see if there is any left!
Here are a couple of my favorites!
In the meantime, I am planning a major sale on any current fabric in my etsy shop to make room. I'll be adding some new stuff and slashing prices on current things. Take a look!!

Wow- you really scored!! I would NEVER let a little thing like already having too much fabric stop me from snatching up such a great deal!! So that's pretty much why my studio looks the way it does- ;0)
I just started blogging, myself and I wanted to stop by a few sites and "introduce" myself. By the way- I LOVE your name-- from Roxanne
