I Couldn't Resist

Yesterday a couple of my quilty friends and I went to a craft rummage sale that was sponsored by the Corning (NY) Quilter's Guild. So much for my fabric diet...walking into that huge room filled with tables that were all over flowing with craft supplies, fabric, yarn, quilting books and patterns all at rummage sale prices was more than I could resist. I found charm packs for 50 cents each, 1 yard cuts of quilt shop quality fabrics for a dollar and a dollar also bought a large piece of the softest pink fleece. Actually, at those prices, I should probably be proud of myself for limiting my purchases to just one bag!

It was great fun! I'm glad we all got some bargains...now we just have to figure out what to make with all that fabric.

What a great sale!!!! I would love to browse through all the leftovers of other quilters...Looks like you got some great buys!!!! At those prices it would be a crime NOT to buy!

Those really were wonderful prices Susan. Here in the UK fabric can be £9-£15 a metre, A FQ on average is £2.50. Well done for only getting one bag. I am sure I would've got just a wee bit more... like a truck load. :-)LOL

I'd say this was a good splurge. If we're equating it to diets, it'd be like having your fill of carrots and apples.

I wish I could find some great sale like that around here!
