This is the culmination of more than 11 weeks of preparation for our huge church rummage sale, "Superfluity". The sale opens to the public tonight, through mid-day Saturday. As in previous years, all the money raised is given to community agencies. Additionally, the 3 childcare programs, along with myriad other programs, that are housed in our church, are allowed to "shop" at no cost. We very much consider this our main outreach effort [the monies are not for the church]. As you may remember, we work in the Book Department and always find reading for the next year - we stock up. But, of course, we are allowed to "shop" in other departments. Oh yes, I did find a couple of things:
3 yards each of 2 Christmas fabrics and this turquoise star fabric. I also found the making of a scrap quilt - 22 - 6" strips, along with fabric for two borders:
Some funny buttons,
Still being the lucky grandma, with those sweet little girls. New skills developing each day - it always is so amazing and delightful.
Hope that spring is treating you well!
