Friday The Thirteenth

Riverton, Utah              High 80 Low 54

The weather lately has been wonderful. Just right for sleeping and not too hot during the day.

Friday the thirteenth is supposed to be bad luck, but for us it was great! We went to an estate sale put on by a company. The owner has always treated us very well. Today was no exception.

On his listing he said the magic words: fabric and sewing notions. The only problem, which wasn't really a problem, was that the sale started Thursday and I didn't see the ad until Thursday night. We thought that all the fabric would be gone but were we ever wrong.

There was lots of fabric left, most of it name brand good stuff. We didn't see any notions and we kept filling boxes with fabric, which the sales people started helping carry upstairs. we were in a fabulous sewing room in the basement.

Cindy kept asking Patrick (the owner) how much we were into him and all he told her was don't worry. We still aren't sure how he priced the fabric for us, but all I can figure is he was charging us $1.00 per piece. It didn't seem to matter whether it was a fat quarter or or in one case, 5 1/2 yards of nice batick, and some of the pieces were bundles of 12 inch squares. There were several partial bolts of fabric.

There was enough to cover my pool table.

After we filled 8 boxes, we thought we had enough and then Cindy found all the pattern books. She got 8 Missouri Star Quilt Company patterns books and one other book. The car's back seat and trunk were full of fabric.

We are going back tomorrow to see if anything is left and it is 50 per cent off tomorrow.

On other news, Cindy broke a tooth today and we are going to get ready to head to Yuma because neither one of us has dental insurance. We have a good dentist in Algodones that we will go to.

Our grand daughter is going to have her baby cesarean next Tuesday and we will probably leave the following Monday.

Thanks for visiting.
