Just what I needed

more scraps . I picked up a scrap bag of fabric at the thrift store for $1.99. I knew I didn't need it, but could see the Rothermel prints as hexagons. I was surprised when I opened it to find some Moda and other good quality scraps. I had been to JoAnns and Hancocks searching for a solid blue for a baby quilt with no luck,but found the perfect piece of blue in my bargain bag.
The next morning I went to the SPCA thrift store and found a cool sweater skirt and a like new pocketbook. I picked up a delft butter dish for someone that collects blue and white dishes. I don't know why I bought the Cronin bean pot.....it was just too good of a deal to leave there. That is why I should stay far away from thrifts!
