"New" Truck

Today we brought home a "new" truck. I believe it's a 1984 Ford. It's mainly for hauling garbage and wood so we don't need anything fancy.

Of course, today being Tuesday, it's thrift day. I scored all these fabrics, some only scraps and some bigger pieces and the iron for a spare, all for $8. The brown stripe and the plain red are heavier fabrics that may find their way into bags. I can see a couple of Christmas bags with the red paisley and the poinseta fabric.

good score. I just bought a used T-Fal ultraglide iron, and it works great. fyi: check out the art quilt show at the Mennonite Heritage Centre Gallery the next time you're in Winnipeg -- great quilts by Judy Morningstar and others from the Fibre Art Network.

I have only occasionally scored on the fabric at the thrift stores. We have 4 thrift stores here in town and one of them has prices to rival a retail store. One had water damage and had to move and I can't figure out where it went. So now I'm down to Goodwill and Habitat for Humanity. Goodwill bundles things together so that you need to buy several items to get enough of the one thing you want and then you have a bunch of stuff you don't want. Bah. Habitat is a much better source for me for both yarn and fabric.

My hubby would envy your "new" truck!

Great find of things at the thrift store! Especially that Poinsettia fabric! Wow!

Happy stitchings!

Great score! I got a few bits of fabric at my last op shop visit. Even some Jinny Beyer for 20cents!

Now that is my kind of truck . . . big and utilitarian *s*

Love the fabrics!
Your iron caught my eye! I just got one just like it! (had a coupon and couldn't resist!) I love mine!
Happy Quilting!
