    I met the sweetest women on Sunday. She was selling her mothers stash for $1.50 a pound. I was so excited. I took my daughter to help me (grab) pick out some nice stuff. She had so much fabric it was unreal. I bought 70 lbs of fabric. Took me all day to go through the fabric and fold and organize and just plan ol' try to figure out what to do with it.

    all of the fabric

    Huh, that's a new one. I've never heard of selling it by the pound before. But, I guess that works out to be a decent amount!

    More pics I have one that my son saw and goes mom thats the thing where they go "bong, bong" Like ohm ohm. Cracking me up. I have no idea how to use this piece I am not sure what the symbols are and or how to even look for the meaning.

    Sun picture does anyone know what the symbols on the sun and moon represent?

    I don't know what it means, but I can really see that as a centerpiece for an awesome quilt. Maybe FMQ around the sun or thread painting? Very cool. Even framed it would be cool!
