Family Visits and Some Good Bargains

Jo-Ann's is having a big Memorial Day sale, so I stopped by last night when I took Carter to a birthday party. I bought these fabrics from their "vintage" collection. They were on clearance and then were an additional 40% off, and then an extra 10% off because I had a special weekend coupon. I think they wound up being like $1.50 a yard. I only bought 1 yard of most. 1 1/2 yards for two of them and 2 yards of one. So I got these:
And these: (and 3 yards of a fuschia Asian fabric so I can make a Mandarin dress after I have the baby. It was $3 a yard, minus the extra 10%.)
With more time to kill before Carter's party was over, I stopped in Office Depot. I had a $30 "rewards" gift card from purchases in the store (from when we bought our new camera in December). I had a rubber stamp made with "handmade by lera" on it and bought some labels. It was inexpensive and they made it in the store while I only had to wait minutes. I still have $6+ left on my card ...
So I made sure to put a label on the bag I donated to church.
