Polly and I pinch ourselves everyday. We are very lucky. We have a great family, giving friends and a fantastic job. (I guess it's a job. It doesn't seem like a job). Every once in awhile we can get a little cranky. We whine to each other "do you know how many emails I had to answer today?" Then we pause and laugh at ourselves. Yes, we are very, very lucky and we know it. This blog has enriched both of us and we have made new friends. Thanks. You make us smile everyday.
We are so grateful for out lot in life, we are re-gifting. You will be the recipients. (a lucky couple of you anyway). We received a lovely gift this week from our friends and colleagues at Moda Fabrics. ***Did you know Moda has the same problem we all do - stash management. They are running out of room down in Dallas! Their stash has become our stash and will now become your stash. They sent us this today.They ran across a complete (yes, COMPLETE!!) set of Prairie Paisley yardage. That means 40 prints of Prairie Paisley! Some of this has been "extinct" for quite awhile. All you have to do is comment on this post before midnight, Saturday the 27th and some of this could be on it's way to your place. It's the least we could do for you, our friends.
Let us in on your stash management techniques. How do you handle the stash? One winner (picked at random by www.random.org) will get a half yard of each of the 40 prints - 20 yards total, and one winner will get a fat quarter of each of the prints - a 10 yard total.Do you make quilts to give away? Do you share with your friends? Have you just accepted your problem and built a storage facility? Harry Potter has a cloak of invisibility. I'm hoping for a circus tent of invisibility to come into my possession. That might be the answer to organizing my stash.
Remember when I told you we loved those Canadian Olympic mittens? Well, these arrived todayYou folks are so nice! Monica came across these in Vancouver and sent them along to us. But, (yes, there is a "but") they are teeny, tiny. This is actually good news once we thought about it. First of all, Polly and I don't have to wrestle for them. While we would love to wear them, we also want to keep them pristine with the cool holographic label intact. Now they will become the coolest Christmas tree decorations ever. I get them this year and they will then go to South Florida the year after that. Thanks Monica. We are very touched.
Good luck everyone!
