    I don't know if this is good or bad....

    I recently reconnected with a friend of mine on Face Book. She likes my quilts and we got to talking...she knits...

    I have 2 lawn and garden bags of yarn from when my mom died. I offerred to send it to her and she said "I have a little bit of material I could trade you for it".

    So I though ok - but I was willing to give her the yarn for nothing in exchange.

    I came home today from errands and I had THREE - yes THREE Large Priority Mail boxes on my porch - FILLED WITH MATERIAL. Some of its already cut but 2 of the boxes were nothing but folds of material - nothing less than a yard. I was going to lay it out and take pictures but I'm so over whelmed...Ladies I kid you not this has to be 30 yards of uncut material and over 100 cut squares and 100 cut rectangles.

    I feel like the yarn I am sending her is no where near worth what she sent me.

    cut squares and rectangales

    Awww, that's really nice!! I'm sure she'll love the yarn though. It's not cheap! Sounds like you have quite a bit to send her.

    She will be thrilled with the yarn just like you are thrilled with the fabric.

    Maybe you are doing her a favor too, because she knows the fabric will be in a good place and no longer her responsibility.

    I would just graciously accept the gift. She obviously didn't plan to use the material as you don't plan to use the yarn. Both of you benefit and both of your homes have less "clutter"! Be happy

    I"m sure she will appreciate what you send her...sounds like she just wanted to be a blessing to you too.
