thrifty thursday

There was an estate sale in the neighborhood last week. I knew the homeowner was a sewer and held my breath when I asked if there were any sewing supplies. Sadly, there was no great stash of vintage patterns or fabrics, but I did get my hands on this:

It's a little too stiff for a funky skirt, but a library tote might be just the thing.
And I have a little confession. While I was hoping for the above mentioned items, I really had to run in for a sneak peek at the house. A new friend is moving into it this weekend!

14 hours to closing! See you (meet you!) soon.
BTW, if you're looking for fabric, my estate sale will be worth the wait...lol

Wonderful fabric! A library tote made from that will be utterly charming.

The fabric is neat. I can't wait to see what you do with it. I love all the cute sock money stuff you made for your daughter. Usually, I just lurk but I wanted to let you know I'm giving you a blog award. If you're not into that kind of thing, that's fine. Just know that I love your blog. :) http://pipstitch.blogspot.com/2008/08/i-heart-your-blog-award.html

Just fabric.
