Moving & A Scrap Give-Away

Ok, I have tried to "bloom where I am planted" and it's not working. See the picture at the top of my blog? That's where I want to be - in Florida, not Colorado. Now, mind you, the present circumstances are self-induced. I insisted I wanted to be here and drug the whole family out to live in the foothills. It's beatiful here, really beautiful. But my extended family is not here and I miss them terribly. So, I am preparing to sell the house (we just purchased last year) and move back to Fl. I know, I nedd a shrink in this economy, but, it will be worth it in the end.

So, in getting the house ready, I have discovered I have a serious problem. I am a hoarder. I mean I hoard every little fabric scrap because I love scrap quilts. The problem with that is that I haven't made any (well, one, but that was years ago). So, does anyone want my scraps? There are bags of them. Some small, some bigger. A huge mix of fabric types from traditional to kidstuff to Civil War. Quilt shop quality and not (Joann's). I'll mail them free of charge. Just leave a comment here by Friday at 3 pm EST. If by chance there is more than one taker then I'll do a random drawing. I just can't bring myself to throw them away. It's part of the hoarding disease.
Thanks!

Please, please, I'd be absolutely delighted to get some of your scraps - scrap quilts are among my favourite ones -
I hate acting like a beggar, but as you so kindly offer them, I just can't resist... and I proise I will USE them all ! ;>)

Glad you'll find your family back with the moving...

XOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXO

Oh, I would so love your scraps. Not only am I a scrap quilt maker but I also make 2 quilts a month for Project Linus so I'm always looking for scraps for those.

Good luck with your move.

Hi! I just found your blog from the GHQA...so glad to have found it! And so excited about the quilt you're mailing this direction. YAY! It looks like your scraps are spoken for, but if you have any selvedges, 30's repro, or civil war that aren't taken, I'd so appreciate you sending them out with the quilt. That's the projects I'm working on now. Good luck with your move. I hear Florida is divine! :)

I would love some scraps. I really don't have many--yet! I have quilts started, so no scraps--I might need them still! LOL Anyway, I'd love to do a scrap quilt as leaders/enders and this would be perfect! Thanks.

On the bright side, you will find that prices here in sunny Florida have PLUMMETED in the last couple of years. It is a buyers market with lots to choose from. Good luck with the move.

Just stumbled on your blog..I can't believe I lived your story!! LOL I had ALWAYS wanted to live in beautiful CO and we purchased 3 acres a few years ago (for a summer home), wound up FLABBERGASTED at the price of building, decided we could only live there full time, so built, retired, moved, stayed 7 mo. and left!!! Same story as yours, no family or friends there, why'd we leave....I'm SO glad we're back in TX where friends and family ARE!
