July '15 SFS-B

 Month: July 2015
Spent: $51.80
Earned: $0

Yes, I know I totally blew my budget out of the water this month (by about $27) but I'm not really sorry.

I got a lot of stuff I needed for my next 2 projects, one of which I'm working on now, and since 1 of the items I needed was 50% off at Hobby Lobby the weekend I went, I decided I might as well go for it.

So what did I get?

 - Fabric from my LNS that is fit for a princess, I'm just not telling you which one yet ;)
 - Thread colors that I was missing for 'Grandma's Project' (GP)
 - Fabric for GP
 - Double pack of 14 ct plastic canvas for GP
 - Magnets (2 kinds - strips with adhesive backing and solid round ones) for GP
 - Plastic bobbins since I needed more
 - 2 small plastic containers for bobbinated floss for small projects
 - Artist canvas for GP (which was 50% off so it only cost me like $5 instead of $10)

Remaining: $64.90

Now since this doesn't carry over to the next SFS it doesn't really matter much.

So $7 of that went towards a Mill Hill bead ornament kit that I found at my new LNS :)

So, what did I buy for $13.20? Well there was a garage sale going on locally because of a liquidation sale of an old quilting store. Sadly the owner had passed and the family was getting rid of her store stash. They had floss, aida, fabric, kits, completed quilts and half completed quilts that had been used to display patterns.

They had floss in bags (25 skeins for $1) or individual floss in a bin that you dug through. Thomas and I started digging through the bin to find colors that I needed but after having little success at that, I decided to just take my chance with the bags and ended up buying 8 bags (about 200 skeins o…
