Freecycle is the best! Okay, I know a lot of people already know this, but if you haven't, and you don't mind used items, check out your local freecycle group.
This weekend I received both the card game "Killer Bunnies" which Chris has been wanting to play, and I responded to a post for "Quilting fabric, craft books, and a quilting frame". So on the way out to John and Amy's yesterday we stopped to pick up the quilting stuff, and it was loads of fabric! Bill had to stop me from going through it all with glee right there in the people's driveway. I'm attaching pictures, but I just need to say I am so tickled by this. A quilter can never have too much fabric in her stash (especially when it's free!), despite what her husband (Bill) might say *grin*.
On that note, I am freecycling a pair of lazy boy recliner/love seat type chairs. I'm attaching a picture. If you want them, you need to come get them, but they need to go soon. Mom and Dad are redoing their bedroom (it's going to look awesome!) and my piano no longer fits, so after all these years the piano is coming home. It needs a lot of work, but since it needs to sit here for about a month 1st, we'll cross that bridge when we get there. And for those people wondering, no I don't really play the piano. I like to fiddle on it, but I don't perform :) But Bill wants to learn and we hope Duncan will be interested too.
