Did Someone Say "Sale"?

Better yet, did someone say "craft rummage sale"?

Yesterday, I went with two of my quilting friends to a craft rummage sale sponsored by the Corning, NY Quilters' Guild. Boy, am I glad I went.

These pictures show all of my loot...for a total of $17.50!

I picked up 2 ziploc bags of quilt-shop-quality flannels -- one with strips of assorted sizes and one with various-sized cuts. Both bags have at least a yard's worth of fabric in them. And a yard of flannel to go with them.

Then I found 16 flannel fat quarters for 50 cents each. Who could pass that up?

I also picked up two large non-flannel pieces -- 2 yards of the butterfly fabric and 4 1/4 yards of the pink -- and 1/2 yard of Laurel Burch fabric that could be used for beautiful labels. And some neat yarn called trellis yarn. It was in a bag with a skein of Angel Hair that I gave to one of my friends before I took the picture. I'm not a knitter, but the trellis yarn looks like it could be a neat embellishment for something someday.

That's almost 14 yards of fabric! Can't beat that. When's the next sale?

P.S. A couple of things you see in these pictures may show up in the giveaway I'll be having in conjunction with Sew, Mama, Sew's giveaway day on Wednesday, May 27th...that is, if I can stand to part with some of it... stay tuned...

You found some great bargains. The word "sale" is a magnet to me, especially where fabric is concerned.
I just discovered your blog. Love your DJ blocks.
