    O Wow! THIS is Good Friday for me!

    Got the insane idea last week to start the Dear Jane quilt. Was at Fabric Depot last week for stuff for my DC (cousin's quilt) & she had sent a gift card to the store for it + a generous "tip" for me. Was talking to the saleslady there about Civil War fabrics, etc. and she showed me the Jo Morton line by Andover. I drooled all over myself, but thought "I can't really afford that."

    Then, lo & behold, when I checked my FD mailer for April I saw that those very fabrics and all the vintage ones were to be 30% off today and tomorrow!!

    (I had a horrible dream last night that Fabric Depot had become a 3-story building that now had clothing and everything and I could not find the fabric anywhere! I searched for hours and finally came to an area that said "fabric" but there was nothing but rows of empty tables!! I saw a young salesMAN who was very rude and said I did not get here early enough! I replied that it was just 5 min after opening. (hours wandering? It WAS a dream, remember?) He just replied that you gotta be quick.)

    So I was going to head down there (20 miles) as soon as I got up. Oh, no! DD wants to go grocery shopping!! (She pays so we'll go now, right?) So I left at 11:34am and was home by 1:01 pm. with (8) 1/4yds of the Jo Morton fabric, 5 yds of Kona natural muslin (118" wide) and still have $7.00 on my gift card!!

    Having that dream would make me wake up anxious. It was entertaining though, and your fabrics are lovely. I really like civil war reproduction fabrics and am collecting them when I can.

    A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort :lol:
