The Sewing Hoard
When I said "I gave her permission" it means she felt an obligation to hold on to those old fabrics simply because they were given to her. She thought she would hurt other people's feelings if their gift was given away. I tried to assure her that it would be OK to pass them on. They were given to her in the hope they would be used, so by keeping them forever she was dishonoring the gift in a way.
That may be some crackhead psychology, but she gave all that old crap the heave-ho. Mission accomplished.
All the quilting fabrics will go into tubs too as soon as we buy some.
I was going to call this "The Sewer's Hoard" but that just looked all kinds of wrong. :)
