    ladies i hit the jackpot today. A very nice lady adverstised fabric on free-cycle so i went and got it. She gave me more than 75 yards of quiting style, and 30 yards of other kinds of fabrics. here is just some of it there was not a piece under 2 yards and there was one that was more than 20 yards.

    the green in the second row is 20+ yards

    What a nice haul! I'm never quick enough to get any fabric but have gotten lots of plants and a nice slide projector.

    Same here, people are asking for outrageous things. Working car in great condition, Electronic folding inclining treadmill, Xbox, washer with matching dryer, laptops...

    lots of free kittens to good homes tho..
