Goodwill Hunting

 That is what I did yesterday! 
May I say that I did that very successfully too?
You all remember how I have restricted my self from buying new fabrics for quite sometime!
There is always plenty to shop from my own stash and it is fun to create from what I have.
But, yesterday was one of those days.. I had to buy something new! 
So I ended up at a local Goodwill store..


I came home and washed the shirts. 
Look closely..don't they look fun?
Can't wait to start cutting them up.
Speaking of old shirts,
This is not the only time I have lapsed!
Few months back I found myself in another Goodwill store.
And bought some cloths!


 

 
It was the dead of winter and I was dreaming of Spring!
 
I can hardly wait to cut all these up and try something new.

By the way, today is the last day for Quilt Fiesta Giveaway.

  7. ...one thing I've discovered about the shirts and stuff is how much I LOVE to fold things up...not only the process of tidying, but the chance to stack and recombine...looks like we're on the same page there...good looking stack!!!
