Unexpected Windfall

Parker had a friend over this afternoon for a play date. When her mom came to pick her up, look what she brought me!

Two boxes full of fabric! Goldie is inspecting it for me. She approves.

The family is moving soon. They had a yard sale, but folks around here don't want to pay what things are worth at yard sales. So lots of stuff didn't sell.

A bag of Disney prints

A bag of sports theme prints

A bag of Halloween prints

These photos are just a sample of all the goodies in these boxes. I have not had a chance to go through all of this yet. I will keep what I can use and give the rest away. My guild has what we call the "raffle table" every month. The idea is that you put things you don't want on the raffle table. During break members "shop" the table by purchasing tickets for $1 on a chance to win stuff off the table. At the end of the meeting a winning ticket is drawn for each pile of stuff. The winners go home happy and who ever brought the stuff does too! The money raised goes to the guild general fund.

That is just great! Look how organized she was at her garage sale! Everything bagged up so nicely by theme. Man, people don't appreciate a good thing when they see it sometimes. Have fun with that!
