Thrifty Thursday

Hey, I'm actually posting Thrifty Thursday on Thursday this week! Must be making some progress.

A nice jar (I think I'll fill it with homemade snack mix as a Christmas gift for Nathan's teacher.); a Zyliss food chopper for my grandpa; an incomplete set of Marlboro dominoes (don't ask me what I'm going to do with those. I have no idea.)

And a bounty of fabric! Believe it or not, I was very selective and left a lot behind. Purple sweatshirt fleece (2 yds); copper colored Calvin Klein Egyptian cotton sheet; navy/blue floral (about 5 yds); Nature's Sketchbook for Red Rooster Fabrics (2 yds); Flroica by Peter Pan Fabrics (2 yds); and Way Out West (horse) fabric by Robert Kaufman (2 yds).

I think my fabric stash has grown beyond ridiculous. I need to do some serious sewing. Luckily, the gowns I'm sewing for the hospice group take about 2 yards of fabric, so I can use up some of what I have fairly quickly.

The gowns are secured in the back with velcro. Any suggestions on where to get the best prices on velcro?

Domino pendants, domino magnets, domino dolls...and on and on! I can't wait to see what you do with them. Christy has a new craft...Christy has a new craft!

Also, thanks so much for my little s'prise! I love them. The cards are the best and already have some ideas percolating for them.

Have you and the little man received anything yet? It was a heavier box so may still be on the way.

Are you finding all of this at the Goodwill Outlet? I've never been that lucky in finding so much fabric!

I tried "thrifting" at 3 different Goodwill centers today, without much luck. I need to tagalong with you next time - you must have a system or something!
