Quilters

have the BEST yard sales!!!
i woke up at a very early hour to arrive at a most anticipated yard sale.
to my delight, i found exactly what i was hoping to find...

fabric, tea stained and 10 years old!

loads and loads of scraps! (have i told you that i'm a scrap-aholic)
the bags were filled with old brushed cottons. if you love cheri and brannock & patek then you know what i'm talking about. here are a few of my favorites...

and speaking of brannock & patek, look what i found! panels to make pillows!


oh, and look at this fabulous find...

and this one!
all this for less than $40.
what fun and boy did nancy & i enjoy going through everything!

i wonder what treasures the little princess and i will find tomorrow on our treasure hunt!!!

Wow! You hit the motherload! And uh-oh -- be careful with kitty. Watch him with threads and ribbons. Our cat ended up with a very expensive surgery when he ate ribbons when he was a kitty. Bad kitties!
