What Can $8 Buy?

 Today was the Stash Builder's Sale sponsored by the local quilt guild.
I went with a plan.
I need aqua fabrics for the new Quiltville Mystery.

I found this fat quarter for $1.
That was the only piece I found.
I need to dig deeper into my stash for more aquas.

A lady was selling lots of wool and a few bags of cotton scraps.
I don't consider this size to be scraps.
I call them chunks.
This bag of Christmas fabrics was $2.
I think there is enough fabric for 2 or 3 candle mats.

And she had this bag full of flannel chunks.
I paid $6 for it.  
There is at least 2 yards of yummy flannel.
The will fit in nicely with the flannel I already have.

My sweet friend Sharlene bought these for me.
They will go nice with some other backing fabrics I have.

I had a good time and showed fabulous scrap control.

I've already started saving for the spring sale.

You made every cent of your money stretch on that great find! Congrats on all the new goodies. I will be alright in the control category, as long as I don't get any great sale emails forwarded to me next year. LOL!
