Sewing Treasures

I had to share the wonderful find I ran in to at the thrift store! I use not to go to these then until reading blogs and seeing all the fabulous things people were finding. So, one day I thought I'd give it a try when I was dropping off something there to donate. Now, it's become a new addiction of mine! Sometimes I drive by and think, "Let me stop and see what they have." Well, this particular day, I hit the jackpot at this location. Look at all boxes of sewing kits I found. Originally they were marked $19.99. I got them for $1.99 each. The small boxes are filled with 9 fat quarters, the larger ones have 18 .. EACH !! They are actually kits to make a lap throw or quilted tote bag. I just wanted them for all the fat quarters! Where in this world can you find 18 fat quarters for $1.99? I was hurrying to put them in my cart. As I'm putting in the last one, another lady says "Man, I'm just a few minutes too late!" Yep, she was .. I bought them all! Am I a bad person for not sharing with her? I just couldn't bring myself to take them out of my basket and give her 1/2. After all, I was there first! lol My fat quarter stash is growing .. I've got to get busy with some scrappy quilts!
