    I've got to start reading the paper. You did great. One question though: how did you leave with fabric still there? I don't know if I could have left any fabric behind!

    I would have needed a 12 passenger van with the seats removed to get it all and I was there at the end of the day! So many pretty fabrics. I know what I'll dream about tonight!

    First thing I did was to scroll back up to see if you were in Ohio and where the trailer park was. LOL Oh well, it all went to a good home. Sigh...

    Beautiful fabrics, sneak the quilt books into a bag and you can spend some free time deciding which quilt to make first. Lucky you.

    I went rummaging yesterday after work, and went to a "Crafters delight and fabric" house and thought the fabric was going to be great, however it was premade stuff that the rummager's mom made to keep active, like wallhangings, etc. They had a few items that were little pieces and I told them I am more of a yarder, than a piecer. LOL

    What a thoughtful son. I'm sure she is smiling down from heaven at all he is sharing her treasures with.
