yard sale anyone?

After my recent fabric shopping sprees in the warehouse districts I decided I really had enough random stash and need to limit my fabric purchases to things required for a specific project if and only if I was unable to meet that need from said stash.

Well, that all sounds good, till you meet up with a yard sale while taking the kids to school that has BOXES of fabric.... 25 cents a piece (not yard), holiday for 50 cents, and notions for 5 cents!

This is my haul... nothing smaller than 2 yards...there is 8 yards of the holly print ... 5 yards of the Santa.. the small green flower is a backing and is super wide, and there is 4 yards... so all this fabric was $3.50.... total! And I got 20 of the vintage rick rack for me ($1 total) and 18 mixed with bias tape to send to my mom. So much for good intentions!


  1. Oh. My. Gosh. You would have been a silly goose to have passed up this haul. Talk about a good deal! $3.50 for all that fabric? That's like FREE!

    P.S. Do these good deals just find you??

  2. I am SO jealous. I would say that $3.50 is not much of a lapse! Love the green and white one, and I REALLY love the apples on the bottom left!

  3. what a lucky find and the price sure is right. Love the rick rack. I saw a quilt recently that used rick rack on the lattice between blocks. I think it was on Frieda's Hive(not sure) but I just adored it. Can't wait to see what you come up with.

  4. WOW! I love hearing about finds like this!! LUcky you! Some really nice purchases! Take care!

  5. Oh my goodness, what a deal you got. All that rick rack and fabric. Really nice.

  6. I'll say you did very well! Good for you.
