Sharon, you were the winner of the Fat Qtrs. Congratulations. DS3 said everyone's comments were good and honest. So we put the names in a hat and out came Sharon's. I will be in touch with you very soon.
Thanks everyone for playing along. Not a lot of players, but I thought it was a fun thing to do that I will do this again. Maybe on a significant visitor number - ie 4,000 - my stats show 3,500 or perhaps a significant date on the calendar! I will put my thinking cap on and let you know in a few days what I come up with. This is a great way to reduce my stash, which is getting too big for the cupboard I am using.
I have tried other means of reducing it but to no avail. A couple of retreats I went to last year they had Fat Qtr raffles where you take along some of your collection and for each piece you receive a ticket and throughout the retreat at various times they draw a number and the winner gets a bundle of Fat Qtrs - well each time I won a bundle it was more than what I had actually taken along!!! My stash increased instead of being reduced.
I really love all my material but there is a lot which I will never ever use as my tastes and my quilting is going in a different direction than when I first started. It's all good quality material I don't like seeing it sitting there looking very sad that it is not being used.
Thanks again everyone,
