“SCORE!!!”

Ok, Ok…I confess!!  I was up to NO GOOD yesterday…The plan was to take Sandy with me so that she would keep me on the straight and narrow…but danged if that didn’t backfired on me!!! 

So where did we go yesterday? 

We went to a Quilter’s Garage Sale!  As soon as we entered the room, Sandy’s eyes glazed over and her brain turned to mush and she couldn’t reel me in…in fact she was so busy shopping for herself that she FORGOT all about me!  I was left to my own devices…:o(  P1200584

  …hence…the LOOT!

P1200590

All  I could say was “SCORE!!!” as I helped Sandy carry OUR loot out to the car! 

WE were bad…very, very bad!

Have a SUNNY Sunday and Happy Quilting!~P

I've said it before, and I'l say it again - I want to go Yard Saleing with YOU!!!! What a haul. I'd have been happy to help carry your loot to the car. Now get stitching!

Rebecca said...

Darlene said...

Paulette, you need to work more on those two basic things..."sit " and "stay ". Ask your two fur babies to help you review those. I am certain Rick would be amazed!

WoolenSails said...

I wish I could find one of those, lol.
We hit a few stores but nothing new or anything that I couldn't get anytime, so no buys.

How do you do it? I never find quilters garage sales! If you haven't already, you should enter my giveaway for tons of chevron and dot fabrics...you would probably win!

Cheery wave!

You two looked like you were having a very good time. I found a few things too - not as much as last time but added to my stash of balis. Sounds like there will still be another sale or two. Wow, that lady sure had alot of fabric. I thought I had a problem until I went to the first sale. Enjoy your new finds.

As Sunny said in the first comment, "I want to go yard sale-ing with you!"

Barbara said...

I swear I'm going to move where you are! I've NEVER ONCE seen a quilters yard sale in my area (New Hampshire). Ah well...I can still live vicariously through you Paulette. Enjoy your loot!

sandy said...

Thanks Paulette, it was so much fun. I'm still drooling, and stroking it all!!

Great haul!!

Anita said...

I'm so bad, all I can think about is how much you paid for all that. Since you didn't say, I'm wondering if it was really a 'great' deal or not! =)

You seem to find the best sales out your way. Glad you had a fun time shopping!

Vicki said...

I too had a great time - you are truly a charitable person - it WAS overwhelming, but in such a good way - AND the prices were good, about $4/metre (39') I believe, but it does add up quickly and I showed remarkable restraint. (good for you Vicki, 'pat, pat, pat, on the back')but don't know if I will next time. I have my loot on the dining room table and am feeling very satisfied. (even picked up a 'free bag' of scraps to play with)

Brenda said...

Wish we has some of those yard sales around here. Lucky you!

Glynis said...

I came out with some fabric yesterday thanks to you. Too bad I missed seeing you there. I have a hard time understanding how one person can have so much fabric.

Tammy said...

One again you SCORE! Lucky you. Hey, did you feel the earthquake up there early this morning? You were probably so tired from GSing that you didn't feel a thing!

Gale, Ky quilter said...

Gorgeous fabrics!!! I wish I lived closer cause I want to go yardsaling with you! :)

Jacqueline said...

I am so jealous..

enjoy each and every bit.

Sandie @ crazy'boutquilts said...

Wow! I am a little green too! :-) And I want to go shopping with you!! LOL Great score~ enjoy! :-)

MargieAnne said...

That's a good kind of bad. Oh joy!

Blessings

Sue SA said...

Me thinks it was all good, good good! Hmm why dont they have quilters garage sales in Australia! :)

Lise said...

Wow, that's awesome...great Score for sure...and I'd love to find a yard sale like that ...lolol... have a great Sunday also...

Lynda said...

Hey, why wasn't I invited? You always seem to find the best garage sales.

Kathy MacKie said...

Glad you did your duty but missed being there. We are here in snowy Saskatchewan and not sure when we will be back.

VickiT said...

Woohooooo you did good on your own. I like the striped fabric in that back row.

It's probably good I don't have a blog right now because I had one heck of a shopping spree myself a week ago. It's embarrassing how much I came home with. Seriously. Half of my 6' x 45" wide cutting table is full of fabric plus a garbage bag, and a box, and there are two totes with more and with books, magazines, and envelopes filled with patterns and templates already cut out that are all very old. Then there are also small bins with lids the size of shoe boxes still in the back room on top of our dryer that I have to deal with as soon as I finish with this stuff in here. Those are all filled with lots of goodies but are all color sorted. I know there are many precut pieces of fabrics and some had actual quilt blocks already made and then one is filled with laces and ribbons etc.

Amazing - you are bad, maybe. Fun at it's best.

What a fantastic haul! A Quilters Garage Sale... - that must be the closest thing to heaven without having died first! Wait. Chocolate would be the closest thing, so make that the second closest thing!
