Went to a LQS (not so local tho - 90 miles away) today - only got a few pieces of batik - and when I had it cut I said I didn't have a quilt in mind. So the guy (owner) says "oh for your stash"..
then he told this story - no clue if it's true - but it is cute...
A young wife would come in and buy fabric from them, and had gotten a machine - her husband finished college and landed a job but they would have to move. They found a small place - apparently very small, because the husband told her that she couldn't take her stash to the new place :shock: :x
So she used her fabric to wrap all her dishes and anything else that needed cushioning - and didn't have enough - so had to come in to the store to get more! 8-) :roll:
Wouldn't you have loved to be a fly on the wall when they got all moved and her stash magically appeared!? :twisted: :D
Fortunately my DH would never ever even think of saying such a thing - after all, he's the one who drove today!
