I’m on vacation this coming week. Between mom’s hospitalization, the cat getting sick and license boy being a teenager, we could not work out a trip to some fun exotic destination. It’s one thing to have someone pet sit, another to have the person force medicine down our cat’s throat.
That means I have to make my own fun close to home.
Today we had our guild meeting, which included the annual garage sale. I sold half of what I took and only bought one piece of fabric.
The fish batik caught my eye. I find it strangely compelling.
From there we went to our favorite thrift shop. They had half off fabric today. They already sell it dirt cheap. Half off made it impossible to pass up anything decent.
I picked up some muslin, some cotton sateen, a nubby open weave piece and a large piece of silk for about $2.
The nubby piece is quite soft. No idea what it would be used for, but I’ll put it in art quilts. I can get two short sleeved shirts out of the silk there’s so much of it. Total damage is 7 5/8 yards in, nothing out.
I have no illusions of ending this year in the black. There are two more fabric sales coming up in the next two weeks, and I’m going to both. I can’t pass up good quality fabric at such low prices. After that, the sales stop until December.

Fabric in: 33 3/4 yards
Fabric out: 19 3/8 yards
