    Has seeing fabric ever got the best of your better judgement besides being over come in a fabric store and hiding purchases from hubby after realizing what you did. I went to a garage sale yesterday and was so over come when I saw all this fabric for sale, two huge boxes for $17.00 that my must ask question I forgot to ask, "do you have cats". Forgot to ask and by the time I got home I was a mess, big time. Benadryll, inhaler, everything short of emergency room visit. Husband bless him is washing everything for me. Sooo much material,even beautiful flannel some 15 yards X12.

    Guess there was no hiding that purchase from him, was there! He's a sweety for washing it all for you and it WAS too good o a deal to pass up it sounds like! I'm glad you made it home okay-it's hard to drive like that.

    some things are just too good to pass up, but I bet next time you will ask about cats.

    Congrats for the great deal, but I guess when they say "Sometimes a good deal comes with a good price" is right. Bless your husband for helping you.

    I think fabrics give off special pheromones that attract quilters like bees. Sorry your allergies are acting up but who could resist?

    My DH doesn't totally understand (he's getting there) my quilting addiction, but supports my need for fabric. Most of the time anyway! If I were the allergic one, he would do the washing too.
