I was running around doing errands on Saturday and stopped in at a couple of thrift stores. The one, with the habit of mis sizing the sheets, had a bunch in. I bought a double set for $7, but it turned out to be a twin size but the $5 king size duvet cover has an awful lot of fabric in it. Then I popped into the Sally Ann. Apparently they have these special days when you pay only $5 for a bag of specific coloured tagged items. I ended up with 6 pair of jeans to chop up for rugs (yes, I know I don't like weaving with denim, but it makes lovely rugs) for only $5. You can't really go wrong with them at that price. I left the trendy ones with artfully placed rips and holes in them and the ones with fancy brand names, or in really good shape. It won't make any difference for my use and might for someone who really needs those jeans.
It's rather nice though that the weather has gotten unseasonably nice. Yesterday I washed and hung out all those sheets for future rugs. Today most of the jeans got washed. Gotta love these lingering autumn days!
