Coming Up for Air

Looks like I need to clean my camera lens. There's a fuzzy spot. Anyway, here is s-o-m-e of my fashion fabric out in the yard sale we had this weekend. I had already sold about a row by the time I thought to take a picture. Man, let me tell you -- fabric is VERY heavy! I had 22 huge green trashbags full. Now mind you, I've been sewing for 35 years, so some of this fabric is probably 20+ years old but still in new condition. If there were a fabric collectors anonymous, I'd have to go. LOL!

The next picture is all my sewing patterns -- minus a box or so. That's not the worst part -- most of them were unused! I also sold all my crochet and cross stitch stuff. I can't believe my husband didn't even rub any of this obsession in my face. He's a saint! I have to say, though, we had an absolutely beautiful weekend weatherwise. It was high 70's and 80's.

While we are moving to Florida and trying to clear most of the house, this yard sale was only our basement, garage and shed stuff (minus the fabric). Once we sell the house, we will have an estate/yard sale. I have to say, it was very hard to part with my fabric and patterns, but I have to be realistic. I did, however, keep all my quilting fabric, books, patterns and magazines. They are coming with me to Florida. Hehehehe.

Tomorrow we leave for Florida for a week. We will be community combing, househunting, etc. I'll blog again when we get back.

I'll leave you with one of the beautiful trees in bloom in our yard.

Quilty hugs,
