    Default Won Two Auctions Last Night

    There's a company called MaxSold that is lightly active in our area; it's much more active in Canada. They do things like downsizing sales, moving sales, and estate sales. Last night an auction closed just one mile away from me.

    I bid on two items and won both:
    Fat Quarters for a Queen Size Quilt:

    I looked up the suspension system online, and I bought it for just about 12 cents on the dollar. The fabric was also a good buy, at about 50 cents on the dollar.

    I'm pretty excited about these purchases! I get to pick them up Saturday morning.

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

    Yes, I look at that site quite often. While I haven't bid on anything, my brother did get himself a 301 sewing machine in a suitcase for $11.
    Blessed are the children of the piecemakers for they shall inherit the quilts!
