    I found this morning over 900 yards of fabric and a brand new floor frame still in box for $160. I am so excited, so I made a few pictures of part of the stash. I still have four 30 gal bags to go through. Now I need find a way to stash it away before DH has a fit....lmao..

    I always hear Texas is just a little bit of Heaven and now I believe it. "Not a native but got here as fast as I could" as the bumpersticker says. I am happy for you.

    Wow, that is a lucky find! Did she have any other quilting stuff or know of someone that is going to have a yard sale so you can be first in line.
