    I have been spending the last few days working in my fabric
    room.

    I did have a stack about 15+ inches tall of fat quarters that
    needed to be folded, busted it down to a stack about 3 inches
    high.

    But noooo that wasn't going to be enough for me I guess because
    I than pulled out fabric that was tucked "away" that needed to be
    "taken" care of.
    Now I have stacks of fabric in the following "categories"

    Fat quarters to iron and fold
    Fat eights to iron and fold (thankfully not many in this stack)
    Half yard cuts that I will cut into FQ's
    Yardage that is 1 to 2-1/2 yards to get folded
    Yardage OVER 2-1/2 yards gets put onto bolts.
    Scraps to be cut into 1-1/2" & 2-1/2" widths (various lengths) 5-1/2"
    squares and anything smaller then 1-1/2" wide going into a "string" bag,
    then there is the selvage bag (2-1/2 gallon size).

    While doing all this I am dealing with my hungry stomach because
    of the wonderful smell of the Chicken & Beef chili that is cooking.

    I will post pictures if anyone is interested (once I locate my camera cable).

    SP, I don't think you post much here, but in case you do ... your tracking number is 9405 5036 9930 0281 7681 55. Sorry to say that I didn't get to put a note in. I had 10 minutes to get your package to the post office before it closed. But I will write you a lovely note when you receive it.

    thank you jaba for such an awesome package

    I'm still overjoyed with the package I received from jaba; I already sent her a pm to let her know it arrived; jaba - sorry I forgot to thank you for the needle holder - it's perfect for when I take my hand sewing into the other room to work on - and thank you for the flavored coffee; as I said before, the best gift is the gift of friendship and the sharing of time and talents. Thank you.

    Your very welcome, Roseirish48! DH helped pack it, and I must say, I really planned on a medium flat rate box, but boy, is he a packer!! I don't think I could have fit a postage stamp more in there!! Anyway, it was fun putting together. Hope it arrived all in tact? Is the chocolate ok for you to eat?? No sugar is listed in the ingredients.

    At the bottom of the page go to 'Quick Reply' and press the little icon with the tree on it - next to the world icon with the Red Cross through it.
    When the box opens it will give you the option to insert image 'From computer' - select the box 'Choose File'. You will have the option then to 'Take photo or video' or 'Choose Existing'.
    If you select 'Choose Existing' a selection of photos from your iPad will appear and you just choose the one you want and upload.
    Lang may yer lum reek. (I'm a knitter - hence - 'Knit-ette'. Confuses a lot of people!)

    75070 =19 (Krystyna would add 1+9=10 1+0=1) NO! mine is 19....

    Krystyna did you learn to "cast out 9's" in school? I don't know anyone else that learned that but it looks like maybe you did. I still use it to check my math...learned it in 5th grade and have a minor in math from college...still love that method!
