    Forget the bonus--I'd just like a cost of lining on my retirement and Social Security--none in several years now.

    We all work hard so deserve a little treat now and then. What better use for a bonus than fabric.

    Look forward to seeing pics of fabric and/or end results.

    Gotta love those batiks.

    Fabric.com has 60% off today, most is $1.99 yard...great for backings at that price.

    Got a bonus at work and I indulged myself a little bit. Last year I got a longarm machine with my bonus so I'm being a little conservative this year.

    Having it delivered to work since I have had packages disappear off my porch and no way do I want this one to go missing.

    Oh goody - this means you'll start designing again! Looking forward to seeing another of your designs. Did you see the last design K3N did on EQ? If you haven't, look it up. It ought to get your design juices going!

    About a year or so ago, a friend closed her quilt shop and had a garage sale of all the fabric she brought home for $2.00 a yard -- I got 100 yards, but pieces were from 2 to 10 yards so I didn't get as many different fun fabrics. Had to save up my "allowance" for that shopping spree. I'm a state employee in Ohio and we are glad to get our regular paycheck, even though it's smaller the last couple of years then it used to be. What fun for you! I just started buying some batiks and could see how they could get addictive.

    Well, first the great news.. you deserve every single bit of it. then the questionable neews, do you have a place for it? Or is hubby in the process of building more shelving... I love when I can buy fabric in bulk, especialy if it's a type that I can make at least two quilts out of it when I mis it with some that I already have in the cabinet... I love when I receive a package of fabric. I enjoy after then from the opening of the package to the separation of what I have to go over each and every piece and where I am going to place it as my mind has aleady settled on 7 different projects.
