    Here are a few pics of the fabric that I got at an auction this last Sunday. I picked up 6 big boxes of fabric. I have been having a blast going thru it. Some of it is yardage and some is just small pieces. It all needs to be washed yet. I probably got over 100 pounds of fabric.

    Oh you bum! :wink: Lucky, lucky girl! What fun going through it! I can't wait to see what you do with it! Does it feel like your birthday or Christmas at your house?

    WOW!!
    YOU DID GOOD!
    Now, I'm on my way over, so you just leave the door unlocked and go do some shopping or something. I'll let myself in and I'll be fine. If you have a pooch or kitty, I'll give them treats and love on them so they don't feel neglected.

    AHHH...Just noticed in your avatar you DO have pooch and kitty.
    Now, I have to go buy those treats!
    Don't you worry, I'll take good care of them while you are out. I'm sure they will "guard" your fabric stash. hehehe
    Here kitty, kitty, kitty!
    Come here puppy! Auntie has a treat for you, you cute little thing! :)

    Yes, I have a dog and a cat and they both love treats. The puppy will probably just lick you to death. The cat is laying in a box of the fabric now, so you will probably have to lift her fat ass out of the box to get to it. I have plenty so if you want to come over I'll share.
