I went to two thrift stores and bought six pieces of fabric. They are:
5.5 meters of tan and white cotton seersucka
2 meters of black ponte! at a thrift store!! you must admit this deserves extra exclamation points!!!
1.5 meters of a lovely soft grey heathered knit
1.5 meters of navy and white polka dot polyester
4.5 meters of black and white print, I think it is swimsuit fabric
1.5 meters of a very interesting double sided olive and black fabric- it is actually two fabrics sort of sewn together, I love it, but have no idea what to do with it. If I had enough I would make a jacket.
Then S. (rubber duck PJ friend, she'll love that description) and I went to a library book sale. I spent $34 on 34 books. I bought 8 sewing books, 7 photography books and a bunch of novels for Aunt Edna.

Before you all write me off as a selfish braggart who just likes to flaunt my good fortune, I have something for a special someone out there. They had one of these books at the sale and I already have one, but I felt certain it could make someone happy.
|I saw a few of these on Ebay for $15 TO $20|
Edited-this is one of Sewing Pattern Reviews top 15 sewing books.
So toss your name in the virtual hat. I will send this anywhere, but if you are overseas (i. e. not in North America) it will be sent by rowboat, cause shipping will be expensive. The random number generation will happen Monday, May 7. Have a good weekend everyone.
