Fabric Friday - I love a Sale

19 comments
My love (obsession) with fabric started when I was very young and mom/Freda would drag me around fabric stores looking for fabric deals. Since Freda made everything fabric related from clothes to quilts and slipcovers, and she was on a very tight budget, she was always searching for a deal. It is hard to pass up a fabric deal and there are so many sales going around right now (both locally and online) that I succumbed to a little fabric purchase here and there. I limited myself to a half yard each and felt pretty good about that.
These fabrics may not look exactly like my style but I couldn't pass them up. And they look great together.
These look more like me and in half yard cuts I'm very happy with them.
More and more like my style these fabrics came home with me.
I couldn't decide on black or neutral for this print so I picked both.
Another cute print in 1/2 yard.
This truly is "me". I love fabric with words.
This home dec weight fabric I'm really not sure what to do with but I really like it.
Cats and chickens - they both live at my house so this is perfect for me.

I know it is hard to shop after Christmas when the cash is gone after gift shopping but I didn't spend too much and I like what I brought home.

We have a blizzard here in Utah County. We finally got our "snowpocalypse" or something like it.

Happy New Year everyone. Next week I'll show more lovely Christmas gifts. I need to start sewing now.

So pretty! We tried to get down to Pine Needles today (everything was 40% off) but the freeway was so icey we didn't get very far. Found some deals a little closer to home! Mimi

What cute selections! Home deco fabric always makes great shopping totes. I always need more of them and kind of select them based on my mood. ;)

They all look like "you" to me, LOL! Lots of fun prints and bright and happy colors. I'm hitting the sales today at a quilt shop 25 miles away. Happy New Year!

I see placemats in that cats and chicken "home dec" fabric.....or maybe a totebag. It's really cute fabric! I love finding good deals on fabric. When you talk about shopping with Freda, I can see myself with my mother, Mary, doing the same thing. LOL! I am "sew happy" that I grew up with a mom who knew that fabric was an important item in one's daily diet. LOL! More snowy weather headed our way, too. It's a good weekend for staying inside! Have a Happy New Year!!

Hi Nanette:
Have you seen the fabric Wordplay by Michelle D'Amore of Benartex? It is awesome. Nancy got some in black with words all over it, and some dots.

Jen in NY said...

Happy New Year to you too Nanette! Love a good fabric bargain. That last one, with the cats and chickens, is my favorite. They're all beautiful though!
