I hit a sale...so I am holding a contest!!!

The Rabbits Lair a local quilt shop moved into a new building and they were holding a garage sale of things they didn't want anymore...and since they were getting out of cross stitch, I thought I could find some deals. WOW...did I fnd some great deals!!! Before I tell you what I found, here is the Contest- Simply leave a comment and in the comment tell me what you THINK all my new prizes totaled. If you follow my blog then you can have two guesses!! If you were shopping with me then you cannot enter....that wouldn't be fair!!
I will pick the person CLOSEST to what I spent. Since it was a garage sale, they didn't issue a reciept so I don't have proof to show you so you are just going to have to trust me. The contest will end Friday night-July 23, 8:00 pm. I will post a winner on Saturday. I don't know what the prize will be yet..but it will be a good one I promise!! So...Good luck
