    This is the fabric that I got for the lawnmower trade today.There is alot of yardage in some of this fabric,especially the bolts! I think that we are both happy about the trade.

    I do not know too many of the good fabric brands,but most of these are cranston. They are the older ones.

    The question would be was this your lawn mower or the neighbors.LOL. It seems to me that you got the better end of the deal. Fabulous fabric. I would trade DH's mower for fabric but I wouldn't tell him. lol

    Now that is an idea!! I never dreamt that I would ever make a trade like this! She just asked me if I had a lawnmower for sale and my mind stated spinning and I had two,so I said yes and knowing that she was not doing good at all financially,I made the deal with no cash involved so she would have a lawnmower. So,it worked out great for us both.Plus shae gave me abag of pieces as large as fat quarters.Some bigger.

    Actually,she was selling her fabric at a yard sale for $1.00 a yard.I bought a good bit from her and we just became friends and she thanked me telling me that I bought her groceries for the week! She has bins and bins of fabric!! Needless to say,I will go back. She still sews ,but just ran into some hard times and needed some cash. A very nice lady.She used to work at a fabric store and the boss gave her fabric sometimes in place of cash.

    It is so nice when life brings us just what we need or want, and what we have to offer is just what the other guy needs or wants. I love those "Plus-Plus" moments of connection with the world!

    Working with the fabric will be a whole lot more fun than working with the lawnmower....

    That is so true!! I hope that she will be able to sew again after she gets herself squared away.

    Wow, what a deal for you, sorry she is having bad times, though. It is good of you to help her out.

    I thank you all.I always try to do the best that I can do for everyone,because you never know when you may be in the same position yourself and I have been there in my time.You reap what you sow and I try to live right and do right to others.You get rewarded in the end.

    Where on earth did you find someone in such desperate need of a lawnmower that would give up so much fabric for it? I am willing to trade a vacuum cleaner, a coffee maker, a microwave, a kid or a husband. You name it.
