Fabric Finds

In general this year my goal has been to only buy fabric for specific needs.  And I've been really good about it.  In fact, until yesterday I had only 'slipped' once.  Let me show you what I found.
 Now, to be fair, I went in on purpose to get the yellow.  There is a lovely little Thrift Store that I have found that regularly has fabric.  Measured and bundled and for a really great deal.  The yellow was labeled 'pieces' $.50.  There are two pieces that put together easily equals a yard of fabric.  I also got the orangey-red.  I've discovered that I would like more solids in my stash.
 Then I spied this one all rolled up and marked 'piece' $.25.  It's at least a fat quarter - yay!  100% cotton by Northcott.
 And four yards of cheater cloth for $4.00.  A pre-made palate for charity quilts!  No information on the selvage, so I've no idea of age.  Put it's pretty - and very useful.

It's fun to find fabric at this Thrift Store.  They bundle them up and sort by color.  Content isn't labeled, so its a bit of a guessing game - but I think I'll have to stop by whenever I'm looking for something.  They even have one cubby full of Christmas fabrics!
