    Elle, the fabric will go perfect!!
    I'm glad you like everything.
    The box that was originally intended for all the stuff was too small. Well, it was the right size until I put in the Asian fabric. lol

    I just collect and collect, toss it into a box and let it fill up. Takes a few months for one to get filled.
    Now, I have 3 boxes that will be filled. One for you, Izy and K.
    But, you'll all have to wait until Christmas before they go out. They are BIG boxes, so will take some time to fill up.
    But, if there's specific colors you want, let me know. I can search them out and toss them in the boxes too. :)

    They couldnīt be more perfect Terri.

    There are so many there that will be perfect, the Noren Panel will look great with the red and black fabrics as well for a sashing Right

    Oh yes, I think the red/black will go perfect!
    And to think I almost didn't buy any of it.
    I'm glad I did since they are now all out of that fabric.

    Well I am waiting patiently for a pattern called Japanese Fans to come and I will post when I make the first block, it just canīt be much longer, Terriīs fabric made it before this pattern from America. :? It really surprises me how long the post takes from both America and the UK.

    Ok, ladies...do you REALLY think that they are going to keep everything they make? Why do you think I'm going to go out and visit? I send them the fabric, they make beautiful things, I stuff beautiful things into my suitcase and come back home! LOL

    Izy, I am so glad you mentioned that and they are very strict going out of Malaga airport, but then again she might fly into Madrid Airport who are even worse I hear.

    That was a beautiful box of fabrics though it was absolutely stuffed, Colin couldnīt believe it, he was as amazed as I was.

    I am still grinning :D :D :D
