happier than a pig in she-ot

that's what granny would say when things worked out for the good. she also thought that if you pronounced cuss words a bit different, it wasn't cussing. (ever wonder where i get my weird idiosyncrasies from)
anyway!!! i found some of the tie dye fabric i was looking for!!

my friend lisa suggested i call hancock's customer service number and see if they could check their data base and see what stores had 4plus yards in their inventory.

i did and they did.  i was given the number of a store in montana and was told it was up to the store manager whether they would ship it to me or not...

i hesitantly called and told the manager my situation and she agreed to help me!!! YAY *snoopy dance*
i have 4 yards winging it's way here from montana as i type! i want to say a big huge thank you to everyone that looked at their local hancock's for me! i promise to double check for small print from now on *grin*

(i had to use a lifeline and phone-a-friend to help me spell 'idiosyncrasies')


  1. Oh excellent sluething!

    Switch to Firefox for your Internet browser. Firefox handles spell-checking for you - much like your word processor probably does. Type idiosyncracies (or whatever), notice the little red underline, right-click on the misspelled word, and choose idiosyncrasies from the list. It's like magic!

  6. Holy car-wrap! That's great news. Never underestimate the power of women who operate rotary cutters as a hobby.

  7. You are just so funny. I seem to get chuckles quite frequently from reading your blog. Glad that your fabric search paid off. Amazing what a quilter will do to feed the habit. (giggle)
