So, how do I count this one?

I've been watching Value Village for embroidery floss, thinking that if I find a bag with the sort of colors I'm after it might make sense. At the current price of floss, I'm not sure I want to raid my cross-stitching projects and hope I can replace it later. There's also the fact that not all stores carry all colors. It would be just my luck to use up the one shade I can't easily replace.

I didn't find any floss, but I was intrigued by this --

No, it's not designer pre-cuts. That was obvious through the bag. What it is is a dismantled sample book. The fabric is 100% cotton, a little heavier than most quilting fabric....and just look at those pretty stripes!

I'm thinking there's a wonderful tote bag or utility quilt in here somewhere.

I'm counting it as a yard because I'm not going to measure each piece and tally it up that way.

However you count it, I probably would have purchased it, too.
