Love the people who treat you right, pray for the ones who don't. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is a part of life, getting back up is living."

    That could be me if it were my fabric AND my yarn stash all fell on me.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    I think if my stash fell on me it would be the quilters equivilant to a burial at sea.

    This is really a LOL situation. However, my hubby would missing a lot more meals if he gave my stash fabric away.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    I am going down to check on my fabric now. And I will continue laughing all the way down there.
    P.S. I am not laughing because of the situation, I am laughing at the humor in the article written. My DH just read it and he is chuckling too. He promised to check in on me more often. He knows how to cook and make his own meals when hungry so he may not otherwise have looked for me for quite some time. Hope she is okay!

    Made me laugh. My stash is in totes on steel racks. I discovered early on that the closet was not a good place for stash.

    Good thing most of my stash is behind cabinet doors!!! Though I do have a dozen or so rubbermaid tubs in the garage that I could get buried under


    My newest Grandson, Caleb Austin, was born May 29th. I am now Grandma to 4 precious babies. I am so blessed!!!!

    Funny but I think it is a joke story. I think if my husband had people picking through my fabric stash as I lay in intensive care, the next story might be his obituary.

    When we first moved to San Diego I read a story of an elderly (80+) man buried in his garage by his stacks of books - I thought it was a joke at first until I thought of my parents - my dad said he went happy. After that incident though he bought storage shelves and started organizing all his books and magazines.

    And I agree with you Tartan! I think it is a joke and DH best leave my stash as it is, however it is.

    My shelves had so much fabric on them a few fell, my Husband had to reinforce the shelves after I removed all the stacks of fabric. It is a stand alone cabinet. No danger of anyone getting hurt.

    How funny. 'Bring a covered dish, indeed!"
    When a dying man asked his pastor "How long does it take to die?" his pastor's heartfelt reply was "A lifetime." Live life to the fullest, but stop now and then to enjoy the sunset.

    My sewing area is in the basement, and is so packed that everyone is afraid to go down, so my family said when its starts stinking, they will just set the place on fire, cremating me, burial done. I feel sooo loved.
