    Yesterday when I got home from work ( a 12 hour day ) my son had three small plastic grocery bags of fabric waiting for me. They were from the wife of a man he works for from time to time. She was cleaning out her sewing room. Yipee. Today he called and ask me to come over there because she had a few more things for me. Wow.........three large trash bags filled with fabric, 16 cones of thread, a half hand quilted lap quilt and a six foot long roll of fabric.....at least 10 yards on it. FREE. I am in my glory. What a wonderful windfall from a fellow quilter.
