    Oh My Gosh, WHAT WAS I THINKING - keeps going through my mind as I open up the tubs of fabric that have not seen the light of day in many a year, to refold and store in the closet.

    Could I really have purchased that???? -is another phrase that is echoing through my head as well -

    Of course an ad on Craig's List for 320 yds of fabric for $150.00 is also rattle through my mind as well.

    Do you think my DH would notice that much more fabric??

    Fold it around your ruler. Some how it makes all of your fabric look smaller. This worked for me. DH even thought I didn't have very much and suggested I get more because the cost of fabric will just keep going up. The plus side of doing this was that I could really see what I had and buy to fill in what my collection was missing.

    We'd love to have such a find for our sewing ministry making children's clothes in far distance lands. Wow!

    Create scrap grab bags of fats of the diffrent ones and sell them. I bet you would get rid of them in a flash.

    I personally love scrap bags...have a small "stash" and always try to scoop these up when I can afford to

    If you wrap them around a ruler like someone else suggested, he will not notice another 320 yards.
    Sell the old fabrics if you don't think you will use it.

    You are more than welcome to come for a visit - unfortunately my guest bed is full of fabric and other items removed from the soon to be sewing room

    Florida is warm at the moment and the UGHYYYY silk worms hanging from the oak trees are almost gone.
