"Don't go too wild at the fabric sale this weekend, remember, you'll have to use it all someday." - Angela (soscrappy)
My rough estimate.....40 yards---YIKES!
my fav: 30's reproductions....
the start of a black/white collection (and maybe some red for the Black/Red pineapple blossom finish)
a couple more pieces for the Red/Blue/White BOM quilt
some BRIGHTS for possible Quilts 4 Kids donations....
close up of one of the brights----I finished off the bolt (~4.5 yards)
some random pieces I grabbed from all over; hmmm, I see many of them "go together" quite nicely....
The total damage: yeah....... went over budget JUST a little....really, JUST a little. They had an even BETTER deal than 50% off cottons, and then an additional 10% off total purchase. When I brought up my CARTS full of bolts to be cut; (after the sales lady went into panic-mode), she smiled and asked if I knew about the "buy $100 worth, take $20 off total purchase". (Which equates to 20% off total purchase -- if right around $100). Thank goodness they weren't overly busy, because I kept adding to my piles. Kinda like our stash---she barely made a dent into cutting the stack of bolts when I added more to it! I started at 10:00, and was done "shopping" at noon. Pam, sales lady, offered a suggestion that we (my MIL and I) head to lunch while they finished the order. Great idea! So we called FIL (from work) and we went out for a burger. And, naturally, I made out on THAT deal too! Dad bought.
Anyway---back home now with hopes to get all the new purchases pressed, folded and stashed away for the perfect project in the future.
BOM'ers---I'm working on getting February out to you too. Trying something different, I hope it'll work out just a nicely for y'all :0)
Happy Sunday morning
