    I believe it!
    And these truck drivers know exactly how to spend their wait time...I wonder how much stash you can stash in a semi?

    If I got the right number of zeros, I think that's just over $171 per quilter per year. Somebody check my math! I've spent that already this year I think, or come close.

    lol seriously. I work at a super Walmart, well when they schedule me to work, that is. Some of their stuff is ok, but as for the fat quarters they carry, they belong on an ugly fab list. hehe

    It's me. I swore I would not stash build, and what am I doing, stash building. When I found I could buy a whole bolt for $2.38 a yard I kind of went nuts. Also when people on this Board have blenders for $4.25 a yard, what can you do?

    You are correct. I want to know who isn't pulling their weight because I sure spend more than that a year. lol
