    I know not many of you will have empathy for the amount of fabric I have but I need to have a garage sale to be able to organize for my garage sale - it is really pathetic.

    this I want to keep for now but for crying out loud why?

    Hey-it looks like we could all come to your yard sale!! A lot of work ahead, but think of the end result-lots of money for more stuff (you really need Hehe).

    I always have a terrible time finding Zipper when I need one.. now I know why.. u have been hoarding all of them..

    Start taking pics and posting.. The ppl here LOVE a good sale......
    I so wish I was closer...... I actually went to the grayhound bus site... then it downed on me...Where would I put it!!!!shucks... I'd find a place.. now that I'm back to quilting ( after broken arm, family death, and hand surg) wow the walker bags and wheelchair quilts I could make for the Veterans!!!!!! I'd LIVE in that basement!!!

    I know it is so hard to let go, expecially when ur overwhelmed by it all....
