Garage Sale Buys....

It has been very wet and stormy here the last few days...lovely weather for ducks or staying indoors sewing, but... ...what's a girl to do when one hears about a garage sale happening down the road with fabrics for sale....so yesterday morning, in the stormy wet weather a buying I went.
What a great garage sale...look at this lot, a whole BOM kits of "Camelot", I have seen these blocks around in blogland...Shirley, waving to you...look!

What a shame the person who started on this, gave up on it after only one block....I wonder why!

Maybe it was not her thing, or had put it away then lost interest in it...I'm not sure about the colours of this block, but for the cost of just a few dollars, I could not resist buying the kits...

Some bundles of repros, a couple of Moda charm packs..you may even be able to see the price on the charm pack...bargain!

...and some backing fabrics....how could I resist not buying these ....♥


I sandwiched DS's table topper this morning...now off to quilt it....it's so big, it's not going to be easy going under my machine..

Till next time...take care...♥

  17. OMG!! I thought I was lucky finding a few lengths at opshops! I'm going to start going to garage sales again - you were so lucky! But you will put yours to good use, unlike me, who would probably stow it in the cupboard and think about it for the next five years, lol!

  18. How lucky was that?! I have to admit I'm a bit jealous. I've been eyeing that pattern for at least a month now. It's a bit beyond my skill but I'm ready for the challenge.

    I look forward to watching you work your magic on Camelot.

  19. Now Julia I am going to expect great things from you. Next time you go to a garage sale I want to come. Give me plenty of warning so that I can book a flight. How lucky was that? Meant to be.

  22. How fantastic to find a "quilters" garage sale! I'm looking forward to watching your Camelot grow.

  23. That is definitely the kind of garage sale I'd love to find--and never do. I'm shocked that somebody actually bought all those Camelot kits and quit after just one.
    Well, as they say--one person's trash is another person's treasure, and that would be lucky you with the treasure.

  24. I would also love to know the story behind the treasures you found. Good luck to you, I think you must deserve all those goodies.

  25. How exciting and what a lucky find. I just bought the pattern for Camelot but certainly not at garage sale prices!
