    I may fly to Texas overnight and help you sort it. I will have very loose fitting clothing and may "gain" some weight by the time we are done. I don't know, I see some pieces there... Congratulations on your find.

    Isn't there a saying that things are bigger and better in Texas?? I guess they are right!! What a find!! Wish they had sales like that around here. Guess I will have to visit Texas after all. I will just avoid my psychotic relatives.

    From what I understood, that was only a small part of all the fabric the Lady had :shock:

    That's a bargain that you just couldn't pass up. What fun to sort through all the fabric and see what you have. Bet you could easily make back what you spent by selling what you don't think you'll use. Hope you have a big storage area.

    I assume my family will have a garage sale just like that after I die. They will sell hundreds of yards of fabric for about $.18 a yard. I better get it used up - we can't afford the loss. :wink:

    OMG! There's a whole world of green (with envy) quilters out there drooling over your find! Way to hop on the opportunity - We all are really happy for you, because it means our ship may come in someday too - if we just stay alert. Good luck stashing your stash away (I wouldn't have enough storage for all that!) Can't wait to see all your new creations!
