    Default Score...Again

    As many of you know, I LOVE finding bargains on FB Marketplace, and other local sale groups, as well as thrifting. I hit the jackpot yesterday. A woman on Marketplace had posted fabric for sale. She did not give lengths, just said each roll was about the width of a thumbnail. We spent several days trying to come up with a place that was not to far for either of us to travel to, since she was not very close to me....I had originally told her I was going to pass, since she was so far. She wanted it gone, and it turns out her DD within a close enough location to me. ( at least a distance I am willing to drive for a good bargain). I mostly wanted the daisy fabric, the teal blender, and the yellows. The others were just a bonus. As it turns out there was a total of 24 yds of fabric, for......$10....YEP $10. I paid less than .43 a yd for all of it. Yes I AM a happy camper.

    Wow, don't you just love it when that happens. What can you buy for $10 nowadays? Well a microwave cosy, that's my new price.

    Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

    Every day I try to do one thing that challenges my comfort zone.

    Toni ... If I keep sewing long enough, will they make their own dinner?
