I'm in trouble.....



I'm in trouble already. My fabra-holic friend, Val, is having a yard sale. Her entire basement is nothing but tubs and shelves and more tubs of fabric. I get first shot at all of it. Fortunately, for me, it's not all cotton. A lot of it is dress fabrics. That means my daughter is in trouble too. I may have to take out a mortgage on my house to buy all her cottons. I might as well suck it up and admit that I'm excited about it. I'm gonna buy buy buy. I was only there for an hour tonight and spent fifty bucks. And the cotton fabric's not even out yet. She had an over the door ironing board that folds up. It will be such a space saver in my sewing room. And, of course there was fabric my kid wanted. Val and I went shopping last spring and she bought a bed ensemble and then a week later found one she liked better. I had been kicking myself for not getting the same one. Now....I own it. It's never been taken out of the package. And, the color matches my bedroom. This is gonna get ugly. (Just trying to sneak it all in the house?) Giggle! Actually, Garry would never say a word. I just like to pick on him. I'm going to have to put all Connecting Thread orders on hold. Well, I'm off to make room on some shelves. I may need to go buy another set of those shelves......hmmmmmmmm.....there's an idea!

It's a good thing that I don't live close, I would go crazy too!!! You know the saying "She who dies with the most fabric WINS!" You'll have to post a photo of your goodies!

I would surely be in a world of hurt if I lived near you! A fabric yard sale? That would be like a dream come true! Have a great time!!

To bad the computer din't have touch-avision. I'm sure you'll be spending days fondling all the new finds.

What an opportunity, I'm sure Garry will be impressed with your bargains. After all, it's a garage sale. He'll really like it is something is for him if he's like my DH.

I am beginning to think that she who dies with the most fabric dies because she is buried in it.

There should be a law that says output must equal input. In other words if there is no room.....the you cannot buy.

Ha......as it if ever stopped me.
