    My son is having a yard sale to clear out his house and also raise funds to move to Tennessee. So I pulled out a huge stack of Christmas fabrics and spent the last 4 days making dozens of trivets, pot holders, mug rugs, pillow covers, ornaments, etc. that he could sell inexpensively in his yard sale this Saturday. Shipped them all off today. Whew. The picture shows just a few.

    Hopefully, they will sell well. Of course, most of them have a cat theme.....so if you don't like kitties, maybe not. I was using some fabric panels I had on hand.

    He knows. He loves it as much as we do. Our place is back on a ridge in the boon docks, very peaceful and private. He has 5 and a half children, so it will be a nice place to raise them .... instead of the huge city where they now live.

    Thanks everyone for all the nice comments. Makes the time I spent seem like it will be worth it for him.
