On my way to this board this evening, I scanned the headlines at MSN.com and saw an article about cotton prices on the rise due to low supplies and high demand. Not good news for any of us.

Well, many of us have said that we could live to be 115 before we ever used up our stash. :?

I have lots of fabric but I still want more. I guess I better get busy buying before the price increase.

There's yet another de-stashiong sale going on as we speak. SHe says she has over 80+ to list. Better check it out. Then again, maybe we should warn her to keep it with prices going up. ROFL

I'm madly thinking of what sorts of prints or textures or tones I need to fill in my stash before prices go up, and then when the fur starts to fly, or rather the fibers, I'm going to hunker down and use what I have.
