    I have been helping my church clean out the craft area and taking things to the local senior center. Well, yesterday, I packed up some boxes of books (quilting, sewing, cross stitch, etc) after I had looked through all of them of course. I had a few stray books and stuck them in my carry-all bag. When I got to the Senior Center, I helped a gentleman unpack my car and mistakenly put my carry-all bag with all the other stuff.
    Well, I won't miss the carry-all... but the fabric I had in there to wash??? I will definately miss that!!!!! By the time I realized what I did, the Seniors had already gone thru everything and some lucky ladies got at least $50 worth of great fabric. What an air-head I am!!!!!

    Sorry for your loss but happy for some senior citizen...
    remember- what you give will come back to you a hundred fold.

    I really hope the recipient of your items is happy. I have helped out at the Senior Center, most of them are nice and appreciative, but their are some that can be rude and disrespectful. Hey!, I'm here as a volunteer trying to coordinate stuff and you reach into the items that haven't even been placed out. (No one told me I would have to lock up my purse)
