I really like the Freecycle group!
See these quilt books? I went through all mine and decided to get rid of these. I believe there is about 150 in this stack and I have another stack in another room.
I didn't know what to do with them. I thought about donating to the library or to a thrift store. Somehow it just wasn't what I wanted to see happen to these books I so lovingly read and used regularly. I really wanted someone to have them that would use them as much as I have. So I posted them on the Freecycle group. Wow! Within minutes I got a whole bunch of replies from people who wanted them.
One person lost all her quilting stuff in the flood, some were new to quilting, one man wanted them for his wife for xmas, another man wanted them for his wife who is a beginner and another person wanted them for the quilters in Appalachia. There were others too. So many requests and all for good reasons. Well, I decided to divide them all up so each request gets some of the books. I decided to add some fabric to each group of books as a sort of bonus. I feel so much better about giving them up knowing they are going to people who really want them.
I guess I better get started sorting some fabrics very early just in case someone decides to be here early to get their books.
I did get a lot of things moved around today. I can actually find things now... sort of. Still quite a bit to do though. I also got another quilt on the machine and started stabilizing it. I have about 50 packages of quilt batting under the machine but only one of the type anyone requested. So that's the quilt that went on the machine. My batting order from last week hasn't arrived yet. It probably will arrive just in time for the next quilt.
