    I found us a quilting haven!!!

    Only drawback is......we all need to pitch in to get the 29.5 million.

    But it is so worth it......Jeff Bridges owns it!

    To bad he doesn't come with the house.

    Haven't read the LA Times in decades. My mother loved the crossword puzzles in the Sunday edition.

    He seems like a nice guy - maybe he'd offer us a discount? Or we could become a charity!

    Maybe we could teach him to quilt, then he could open a store and have classes and retreats there!! You know, teach a man to fish, etc.

    I call dibs on the Crows Nest. I'm not sure how much quilting I'd get done I'd be checking out the scenery. Silly me -I have several hundred feet of outdoor lead cords.

    Beautiful place! If Jeff Bridges came with it then we'd probably have to take his wife too. That's a deal breaker, haha.

    Is that not the most beautiful estate you ever saw? If only Jeff came with the place. Then it would be well worth the $$$$.

    There are over 100,000 members here. At $300 each, we could have it. Almost sounds doable! ! !

    True, but how many of those members are still active? I know I am gonna get a lot of horrified looks for this.........

    But, we can use our fabric money for this purchase. *** runs and hides under cutting table***

    Darn! I spent all my money on fabric and notions. If only I'd known yesterday...
    A quilt is like a good life. It's full of mistakes, but, in the end, it looks pretty good.
