Summer Haul

Believe it or not, today marks the first day both kids are on summer vacation! This usually means my sewing output is a bit slower than usual, but it doesn’t mean that I can’t take in a bit of shopping! Yesterday I hit up a garage sale of a former fabric store owner – just look at the fabulous haul I picked up: 3 yards of a Denyse Schmidt print, several spools of ‘basic’ thread colors, needles, elastic (I thought that these might work for the Tommy Boxers, but I’m thinking they might not have as much stretch as sport elastic), and even a pattern. I’m sad to see one of my local shops close, but I understand she still has some new fabrics coming in soon – maybe I can just shop from her basement!

    Nice haul! The quilt shop in my town is closing too, so I guess it’s still a tough market. 🙁 Might be even harder now that Wal-Mart is jumping back in.

      I think it’s hard to compete with online vendors and coupon deals from other stores (plus Walmart!). I do love what I picked up, but I was secretly hoping for her to put out a few knits – she had some wonderful jerseys (although she might have sold out on those when the shop closed)
