We Interrupt This Broadcast for a Commercial Break!

I know I'm supposed to be sewing my little heart out today, but I just HAD to take a "commercial break" and show you something. I got up and out before it got TOO hot today and ran over to We R Fabrics. They sell upholstery fabrics, trims, and all the other upholstery stuff.

In the back of the store they have this room called "Oscar's Alley" where they have bins of fabric remnants. Well, today they only had one box. At first sight I thought, awwww darn it, a wasted trip.

THEN, I pulled THESE out!



Here are the pieces spread out a little. And see that jean material they're spread out on? Those pieces are from some of manchild's worn out jeans I'm going to use . . .

Look how long the blue piece is!

But here's the KICKER! . . .

Can you BELIEVE IT!? A grand total of 22 cents!! Now YOU tell ME . . . was that a bargain or WHAT?!

Ok, back to our regularly scheduled program *smiles*. Cyber hugs & kisses to you all today.

Wow...that is better than a bargain! Amazing!

Oh, not sure what the fourth animal down on my blog is - I think it is either a really bad taxidermy job, or someone's idea of a mutant animal.

Have a super Sunday!

This was a give-away! Well, someone knows you're going on a cruise and put those deals out there for YOU cause He knows how badly you wanted to find a deal.

I've always wondered about coffee and tea stained fabrics and papers -- do they have the delightful smell afterward, for a long time?
