    In a good way. I ordered 5 yards of fleece for the back of a winter comforter and I was going to put a small border on the front with the fleece to tie it in with the back. Well, they were short 1 yard so will send that when its back in stock but I received 4 yards today. the 5 was crossed off and a 4 was written over top of it with a 4.7 written next to it. Well I did my math thinking I wouldn't have enough because an online calculator which I've used in the past told me I needed 4.125 yards for backing (it's always been accurate for me) so being able to only order in 1 yard increments, I ordered 5. Well, after cutting it up, It seems like I have enough for the back of a baby quilt I'm making as well as for a pillow sham I'm making to go with the comforter.

    I'm so happy! I have more extra than I thought I would!! I'll post pics later with the quilt finished and tied!! Now to go finish it! I had to let you all knoq
