It's here!

Remember me saying that a dear friend of mine (Hazel) was being moved into a care home and my sister was going to BC. to pick up her fabric for me?  Well, it is HERE!!!  Three huge Rubbermaid totes, one 2'x2' box, one smaller box and one, computer monitor box!  Plus an antique thread cabinet that my sister in-laws (Hazels cousin) grandmother made herself!  It is spectacular and as soon as I get my head out of the fabric boxes I will take pictures and post them!  Also in the box there was an unfinished quilt top, and several "doll" blocks (that is how she had them labelled) and a shirt box filled with cut out animal appliques!  I have hardly had a minute to look in the boxes to sort but there are a lot of small fabric pieces and lots of 4' squares and then several pinned rolls of projects that I haven't investigated yet.  Then there are some yardage cuts and an assortment of apparel fabrics and a whole host of other goodies!

When I get a little more organized I would like to be able to donate some of the fabric in Hazels honour to good causes.  So I will try to figure out the best way to do that....I am open to suggestions too !

For now though... I have to get some sleep!  It has been another crazy week!  But at least no one broke any limbs!  So for that and MANY other things....I am grateful.

I'm sure she would be thrilled to know all that will go to good use and someone now has it who appreciates it. What a blessing!

Well I am glad you are so happy with the fabric...can't wait to see...I had my lido treamtnet and then cindy came back from island so we have been busy...and sounds like you have too...guessing that is why we haven't had time to chat the last few days - between the two of us - we need to climb in a box with some cheesecake - lol. Well the last of the big days...cindy flies home tomorrow later in the afternoon and then we go to mom and dads for dinner. Monday is rest day before my big Dr. apt on tuesday. Big hugs. talk to you soon. Beesley
