    Mary,

    I have to finish for the quilt show then will send pics. The studio is a disaster so that will have to wait. Then have a special pic I want to send once that is done if I ever get caught up here. Just ordered a camera and waiting for it to come.

    Hugs,
    Hoppa

    Happy Birthday Krystyna read your blog and I'm with you! I too have so much fabric. Unpacking before moving I gave away lots to a local quilt group and then unpacking at my new home I still find stuff ARGH! Sooo, with much ado I too am going to stop buying fabric and use what I have! Threads, batting, fabric, needles, etc., I will not buy anymore!

    Ah, if only I could fit batting into a squishy! When cotton prices were going up I used coupons and now have more batting that I will ever use! Ooops! I didn't say that. I WILL use it! Every last scrap!
    Dirty little secret - I do not have to worry about our bed collapsing ... every inch packed with batting and fiber fill. No room for dust bunnies!

    krystyna i too have a textile obsession and i came by it naturally. i have been sewing (and crafting) since the age of seven mostly self taught. it is in the genes of my maternal family. all of us (women) at some point in our life sew, quilt, knit/crochet, rug make, hand embroider, etc. i still have a container or two in my basement full of my fine fabrics collected over the years. if they were in a place for me to freely fondle i would. on one of my trips to san franciso i discovered a fabric store (near the mission district) that had $800/yd silks and specialty buttons. the nice sales woman let me fondle the buttons for a bit and snipped me tiny pieces of the silk. i will follow along on your blog to see your progress.


    happy birthday!!!!! love and celebrate every year you have.

    Mary, my very last purchase was of three types of lovely ivory silk ... giant bolts of it. Along with some other things I ended up paying a whopping $7. As soon as it is aired out I'll be happy to send you some if you want ...

    Hi ya'll! Hope you had a great weekend and Memorial Day! Ours was great all of my kids and Grandkids were here! We even had a baby shower ( not due until Sept) for my DIL and DS with all the family and friends! Had a great time and now the clean up begins! You wouldn't believe the towels! LOL! We also have a pool so needless to say lots of extra ones! Let me tell you wish they could have stayed longer! But back to Ohio and Georgia and work and school! Our youngest our Son gradutes paramedic school in March so hopefully him and his family can stay longer than 4 days after that!
    **Krystyna Happy, Happy Birthday! Hope you have a wonderful day and hope it is just as special as you are to all who know and love you!!
    Going to sign up now for the June Swap (so very excited) hope to be able to post more our computer was down for the last week so I had a whole lot of pages to catch up on! Have a great day everyone!
