    I always get a little jealous when I see people post photos of great fabric finds at garage sales. Well, My oldest son told me he could not mail me my Mother's Day gift this year. He came to spend the night this week and lugged what appeared to be a very heavy Rubbermaid tub. When we popped open the top....lucky me!!! He was at an auction emptying the contents of a store...not a LQS, more like a general store. He bid on one bundle for $X and the auctioneer said, how many do you want at that price? My son said, all of them!!!

    Wow that was so thoughtful of your son. And look at all that fabric you got. You will be having lots of fun quilting now...heck you will have lots of fun just going through it all. Did you tell your son he can bring you fabric any time he wants to? LOL. Have loads of fun.:)

    WOW. Lucky you. It is so nice for kids to 'know' what their parents like. That gift beats a toaster anyday.
