    I think it is wonderful that he wants to give you his wife's stash. I also think that if there is something you can finish and give back, that would be a wonderful thing to do

    Along the same line --

    My dd and dh both know that when I die, my daughter gets 1st pick of everything I have in my sewing room. If she doesn't want the machines, they are to sell them, offering them first to my sewing friends. As for my stash, they are to have a party, complete with champagne, for all my sewing friends. Everyone is to pick out anything and everything they want. No limit.

    We did the above for a dear sewing friend who passed a few years back. Her daughters let us have anything we wanted and they requested that we donate to their charity. But I don't want anyone to feel they have to "pay" for anything -- everything will be FREE!

    How nice of him.
    I told my husband that if anything happens to me, people that come to pay their last respects can't leave without an armload of fabric.

    that is a wonderful idea - what an amazing gesture on his part, to be able to share that part of his wife with someone else. It must have been hard for him to do. Very sad....

He said that he was watching me at my breaks working on my quilts and he tought that I have a love for quilting that his wife had. He told me he has all her quilting things and a very large stach. he said no one whanted it and he wanted to give it to someone who will enjoy it as much as she did. He said he is going to give it to me as so as he can clean up abit. What could I say but yes. It will come in handy because I just lost my over time and can not buy anything rigth now;and I need new things. I"m low.
    What a wonderful thing for him to do. I agree with the others, if you can make him a small quilt out of the stash and present it to him, that would complete this wonderful story. :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:

    I am very very touched by this. He cared very very much about his wife's passions, or he would have just sent it all to goodwill. That is a very kind and caring man, how wonderful he was to you too :)

    I would make him a quilt of some of her recent things and perhaps invite him over to dinner with your family.
    I always think that during the week a love one dies, everyone is there or nearby...it is necessary to think of the weeks to come or even months that someone who has lost someone needs a cup of coffee or meal from a friend.
