    Lottery indeed! Where in Nevada? I'll be in Southern Nv in a little over a week...

I have not measured it all yet. My husband counted at least 40 decent sized pieces, two yards and up. And then there was three small bins of small pieces. fat quarters mostly, but some were less or more. There was also a whole bunch of batiks, mostly small squares but a few half or quarter yard pieces. And then a bunch of other pieces I have no idea how to categorize. Also got a big cutting board, 36x24 and an amazing box of tools. In the tools box there was seven rotary cutters and bag full of blades. I think there are eleven, although not sure they are all new. There are six bias tape machine tips. And three things that I thought were just mini irons, and one is just that, but two are that, I think and more. One is called a textile tool and has several tips. The other is a magic Rhinestone setter and mini iron. How fun is that? Now I can bling up everything.

    Ok, hopefully the pictures are resized correctly and will post. And please ignore my messy sewing room. Just having too much fun.

    That is awesome! And here I thought I got a great deal on Friday at a garage sale...just about 50 yards of a huge variety of high quality cotton fabrics for $7 !
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    You really made out like a bandit. The fabrics look like quilt store fabrics.
