Fabric and frustration!

Somehow l locked myself out of my email address.
l have contacted mail2world  many times in the past 72 hours since l did this.
 l have only had automated responses,
and even that took 48 hours from the start of the problem.
All my email contacts are held at that email address.
 l have no way of contacting anyone whom l normally stay in touch with through email.
Its far from life threatening, but l feel l have lost
contact with the world and all my friends.
So if you are reading this and know we sometimes stay in touch,
 l do have another email address you can contact me on
till the problem is resolved. That is, if a real person ever gets back to me!!
l would love to hear from you, especially if you have tried to
contact me in the last 3 days and been told me email is invalid.
l sent my daughter fabric shopping for me yesterday. This is a first for her.
 The shop l wanted to visit is 45 mins from my home,
but only 10 mins from my daughters. So l sent her on a mission to buy
 backing fabric for a quilt. Armed with a picture of the quilt and instructions
 of how much to buy, a flurry of messages and photos
 prevailed during her visit to said shop.
This is what came home.

See those top 4 fabrics? They were on the bargain table.
Now you know we pay a lot more for our fabrics here in Australia.
On average $20 metre.
Well, those 4 fabrics were being sold out for just $2 metre.
No, that's not a typing error.
 $2 metre.
l think l can see some pink and brown quilts in my future and
l think l will be sending my daughter fabric shopping more often!! LOL
P.S. The bottom stripe is the fabric she went for!!
Off to prepare that backing!!
Thanks for visiting.

  9. I love a good bargain! My best was ten yards of beautiful soft brushed flannel for $2 a yard! I got 13 yards for a few good backs! Good luck with your email troubles...I would go mad without it!

  10. Hi Linda,
    Send two e-mails to different addresses. Both bounced. Maybe get a gmail-account. That always works, really! Have yourself a good weekend and enjoy putting on the backing.

  11. She's a good shopper - must be in the genes!
