    My son's girl has been with him for over two years. I've made her two wall hangings, but it's time for a ragged flannel. She picked these fabrics from my stash--her favorite color is orange.

    This one is her favorite of the bunch:

    I went to the Mennonite store with the wall of flannels and there wasn't ONE there!!! :shock: :shock: I purchased all the above from there. So, I'll be searching for them on the web. Or, Jenny and I can find something else.

    So, to not waste the trip, I needed to find something.
    I found these:

    Many batiks and more of the tree fabric.

    On I drove to the other Mennonite shop. They didn't have any flannels I wanted either. BUT, they had these:

    The batik with the suns is a great one for the Lake quilts/wall hangings.

    And these:

    The green is a Thimbleberries flannel I use a lot. The other isn't red, it's a rich maroon and the selvage reads "Rocky Mountain Quilts." It was buy one yard, get one free.

    All toll, it was less than $6 a yard. I feel happy, oh so happy.
    :D :wink:

    Ya know, barnbum, I think that if we compared stashs we would have a lot of the same fabric. I love all of the new picks!

    But wait, I remember a certain pm a while back that said your sewing room was FULL and wouldn't hold another yard. Hmmm???? :P :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

    It's not all fitting where it should, and it's getting me into trouble. :? I took Jenny shopping for fabric because I didn't have more leaves with the green background, BUT when I was washing and rearranging yesterday, I found two yards of it!!!! :roll: :shock: The flannel had spilled over to another shelf and I'd forgotten. Thankfully, Jenny likes the new ones even more, so she's sticking with the plan. :wink:

    Mark thinks my sewing room is too small--he won't even walk into it. But, it's cozy until one of the kids has their own house and I move into one of their bedrooms. :wink:

    I told my husband, after all those years of being so careful with our money, I feel very spoiled to be able to be able to get this fabric. It's a good thing we don't want to go on vacations--just love being home. It's also a good thing we have no debt and steady jobs! :D
