The People Who Lift Me Up

Santa Bags Full of Fabric!

What a treat for me!

While it was a "smaller" Christmas here this year, present wise, we had such a huge beautiful Christmas!

It was filled with wonderful laughs, smiles, love, and just plain happiness. How can it get any better then that? Well, okay so there was even more...

While we were browsing the thrift stores over the holiday I scored! I found several super large bags stuffed full of wonderful fabric! These bags were so heavy my hubby had to lift them into the cart and they were only $3.99 a bag! Can you believe that?
Guess what I got for Christmas LOL

I am still going through them as I have not had much time up until now and I am just tickled pink with delight. Most of all the fabric is of a wonderful high quality and there looks to be just about every color and kind imaginable. Well okay maybe not imaginable as I can sure imagine A LOT when it comes to fabric but there is definitely a huge variety. Even about 5 yards of the craft velour I use for my BGs was in one of the bags. My mouth fell completely open when I pulled that out!

Below is a picture of just the tiny amount I have folded up and grouped so far. I am going to be all night! I am having a ball!

I cannot wait to make beautiful dresses and dollies out of this fabric blessing!

Who says Christmas has to be expensive, I would rather this fun over jewelry and such any day! LOL
