Charity Fabric Sale.

As you know, Debbie and I went to a charity fabric sale at the weekend. I confess I spent a lot more than I intended to. It really doesn't look like much when you see it here but just you wait until I start to sort it all out.
Firstly there were a few bundles of scraps and off cuts, or so I thought. Some of those pieces are quite large.
An almost completed cross stitch. 
No pattern but that shouldn't be too hard to replicate the border once I get the thread colours sorted.
A bag bursting full of strips.
There are some beautiful fabrics here all ready to make a scrappy strippy quilt.
A very large bundle of black and whites. It doesn't look like much but there is a lot of fabric here. I'm pretty sure they are the sample fabrics that suppliers send to our local quilt shops.
These two Christmas blues had to come home with me.
Another bundle of fabric samples.  All dinosaurs!
Torstein will be happy if I get him a quilt made for Christmas!
I'll give you a better look once I get to work on them.
This next bundle is more shop samples and they all happen to blend rather nicely with the dinosaurs so they had to come home with me.
Then I found two more bundles of shop samples, this time in bright girly colours.
And a panel to make up a fabric book.
I discovered these little bundles of precuts and scooped them up.
Some 1.5 inch hexies and some 2.5 inch squares.
I also found some hardware for hanging quilts of cross stitch and some embroidery hoops. 
And that was my haul. 
I thought I had a lot but as I left I saw a woman with a 30 litre crate full to the top with bundles of fabric that she was ready to purchase, another lady had brought along one of this big crafting trolly style totes, it was over flowing too!
