Such a good day!

Whoa-ho! I have had what feels like a LOOOONG day today! And this stack is only a portion of today's spoils :)

I went to a thrift store wth my best buddy today because they were having a "Fill a paper bag with clothes for $2" event. So for a crafter, that equates to "Fill a bag with scrap fabric for CRAZY CHEAP." It was so fun and insane. There was a ridiculous amount of clothes to pick through and tons of people there. So after rummaging for about an hour and a half, I filled 2 whole bags for a grand total of $4.00. For crafting, I got 7 sweaters to make into stuffies and whathaveyou and heaps of beautiful patterned prints and solids that you see all nice and cut up in a stack in the picture (and that's not even all of it!). It's all going to become the most wonderful quilt you've ever seen.

And in addition, I got (for me to wear) a beautiful sweater, and long flowy pretty dress, a shirt, and a long patchwork skirt. Score. Oh yeah and 2 outfits for my nieces, and a bagful of FREE hangers (that I had planned on buying next week anyway). All for 4 bucks. BOO YA. Well, after all that hunting, laundrying, cutting and folding, I feel 99% out of batteries, but I just had to share my super good day with you guys :) Happy Friday!!!!!
