Receive, dearest Mother, our offerings and listen attentively to our supplications. Amen.

I found a microfleece blanket on sale at Walmart last week. $3.00 for a yard and a half-a lot better than the 12.00 a yard it usually costs at Joann Fabrics.

I thought I would share what I did with this one blanket.

I need to check out other stores for more of these "fabric finds."

I use flat sheets from Walmart all the time. You can buy a queen size flat for $3, they have lots of colors, ad it is a decent fabric. I have lined curtains, table cloths and skirts. It is also a decent fabric for kid clothes.

Wow. That is inspiring. I buy sheets at goodwill for my daughter to back quilts with....much cheaper than Joanns and much less aggravating than her stealing my good sheets.
