My daughter usually does the weekly shopping for me, something her dad and I appreciate greatly. But occasionally, I do it, or we will do it together. That is what we did last week. The problem is that I will always deviate from my written list and spend more money than I intended. But what else can I do when I find an outstanding bargain? This time, I wanted to look in the fabric department for some vintagey fabrics, and while I didn't find exactly what I was looking for, I did find this:
It was marked down 30%, making it $3.50 per yard, and the bundle contains 2 yards composed of eight fat quarters. The nice thing is that I don't have to make sure they all coordinate. My plan is to make a purse from them.
I also found this:
which consists of 24 - 2.5" x 42" pieces. The prints are the same ones in the fat quarter bundle. I am not sure what I will make from these. Perhaps I'll try my hand at a small quilt; since the pieces are already cut, and cutting is my biggest challenge, I might actually be successful.
