    I went to a different Walmart today and they had FABRIC!!! oh it was nice stuff too.. must have gotten a new stock in, because they had a bunch of it for $2.00 a yard!!!!
    I bought a few things.. but I TOUCHED everything!!!!!
    Even the higher priced stuff was only $6.00/yard..

    sigh...... I wish I lived closer to a Wally with fabric......
    I'm stuck with a "J's" and a local place ( the local place is pretty good.. but for the cutesier stuff they are $$$)

    *fanning self* WHEW..... I'm still on a fabric HIGH!!!!

    Don't you just love that fabric high? My wm is way to close to my apartment. Takes me like 2 minutes to get there. I can smell the fab's from here.

    I stopped in the Hanover,PA Walmart this morning and over heard the clerk tell a customer that since a new Target and soon a Hobby Lobby will be opening, the fabric/crafts department in the store is getting a boost! Yes the fabric prices have gone up but the selection!!

    I found some new David's Textile fabric at Walmart last week. It's luscious! Deep reds.

    ROFL and tears falling. I can just see you having a fit. OMgosh. Poor hubby. The two WM's by me do not have fabrics so I don't have to worry. ANd becuse I live in in outlying counties, it's too far so I frequent my LQS and mail order. So glad I don't have to have a "power surge" and fan myself like you did. Hope you have settled down. Mt. Dew??? That makes me shiver. Coke is better. *H*U*G*S*

    cokes are good... and I do drink coke when I can not get a Diet Dew......

    I"m sure it was just low blood sugar....smile....
    DH is my "quilting enabler" we stand at the cutting table and I ask for.. 1 yard( just an example) and he ALWAYS doubls what ever I ask for.. so I always get twice as much... today tho.... when I was trying to decide on how much " military discharge paper/document/draft card " fabric for ELVIS!! (I wanted it for the Vetern things I do.. not because it was Elvis , in fact hubby found this piece) he teased me and asked if I wanted 10 yards... I thought he said 20 yards.. I told him I would meet him in the middle and ONLY get 15 yards.... took us a while to figure out HOW i was comprising and meeting him in the middle when I went UP from his " offer"... heheehehe
    shhhhhhh..... can u tell, I'm BLONDE!?
    Unless we just have a load of bulk stuff to purchase, we do not go to Walmart but once a month. and only half the time I go to the fabric store..... we normally shop in our small town, local businesses.
