    After four days I finally got thru sorting my stash. Haven't done it before in two years. Boy, did I find some gorgeous fabric. My worries are over. I don't have to even think about the rising prices of material. Enuf to last me for five years if I last that long.

    I found eight color and fabric combos to make some new clothes which I need and an infinite number of fabrics for quilts. These are fabric I got because they spoke to me. No, I didn't have a special project in mind but after so many years of buying fabric for my customers, family and myself, I tend to lean to certain colors and combinations. Even found some with orange which I dislike, but now, even that is beginning to look good.

    I found three that are ideal for a stack and whack which I have wanted to do for a couple of years but was too chicken. In my present state of euphoria, I think I can tackle anything. I might finally try to post pics again and succeed.

    I think there will be a lot of us re-evaluating our stashes due to the increase in cotton prices! I may become a scrappy lover yet! (I like other people's scrappy quilts, not mine...I have to plan and coordinate my scrappys!

    What really thrilled me was to find extra fine fabric that I bought several years ago at a much lower price. That's like hitting a sale today. I did notice that the fabric I bought then is a much better quality than some I have purchased lately. Even the good stuff. But then we've all noticed a drop in quality these last couple of years. Think of all the money I'll save.
