    Went in for a hair cut

    and left with shorter hair and a bag of fabric!

    My stylist does the hair of a 90 year old lady who
    was a quilter and had to give it up. So she gave Tam
    a big plastic of fabric.

    Tam doesn't sew, so she gave it to me.

    I can't wait to dig into this fabric I did spot some AWESOME
    pieces but have not pulled anything out to really look at it.

    I will post pictures when I get the bag brought up stairs
    from the car (hand my hands full when I got home today).

    Nothing like a bag of fabric you didn't expect to get the creative juices flowing.

    hubs wouldn't let me bring the fabric in unless it went straight to
    the washing machine, so ALL those small pieces of fabric are now
    washing.

    I just put them on a short wash cycle just to make sure that there
    is not any allergens (smoke/pet hair) as I don't want his asthma to
    get flaired up.

    Had some material given to me twice this year and washed it right away, pre wash anyway. When I started sewing 50+ years ago (clothes) pre washed everything for shrinkage and color fastness. And as you never know where bolts of material have been stored and with what, if I wash I feel better.
    Can't wait for pictures.

    About half of this fabric I will be donating/getting rid of as it is just
    not in my taste.

    VERY few pieces (maybe 1/16th) is even FQ size for the most part
    it is smaller than FQ scraps.

    After washing it I have a large HEAPING full laundry basket of fabric
    to sort.

    Will post pictures later.

    *** She asked if she could keep my # and I said "WHY",
    *** she said, "I have a lot of fabric that I will give you when I have time to gather it up".

    *** She has not called yet but I am hoping she will soon.

    I just love those little surprises. Nothing better than a gift of fabric and if you don't like it someone else will. We all have to keep the donating going.
