    this reminds me of the story of the lady that had sewn and quilted for many years and had her whole house cluttered with many bolts and yardage of fabric. When she decided to open up her own quilt shop, her husband was THRILLED!!! He built shelves, painted, helped her with everything!!!! when he was done (so he thought) with the store he began to pack up her stash of fabric into boxes and into the truck, the wife asked what he was doing. The husband replied that he was just helping her move her fabric to her new shop. The wife had to explain to him that she had ordered a WHOLE new shipment of fabric for the store and she was NOT getting rid of her personal stash.
    This is a true story that reminds me of my self and my husband, except for the fact of i do not have a quilt shop yet.

    Now you need to learn to sew with two machines at the same time! That would be productive with all that new fabric! Have fun! Quit pinching yourself, you're going to bruise! ;)

    OH wow what a nice thing to happen! Me and my neighbor were sparring one day about fabric. She said she was helping someone with a quilt project and would be having people drop off their donations and if I was watching out the window to not be jealous!
    And I told her that I saw a catalogue my nephew had and that you could order leftover fabric odds and ends by the semi load and that I was going to have it parked in the driveway so not to be jealous...we laughed for ages!!!!

    Now, open all the bags, dump them in the floor, jump in and roll around.


    If you're going to use the fabric in any future swaps please keep your clothes on, otherwise it's your choice. LOL
