Carol you are so speaking my language about outliving your stash and it all going to charity. You are speaking my language. I have an obscene amount of fabric, including 100 yards of Laurel Burch, 100 yards of Sunbonnet Sue, and Lord knows how many other fabrics I've collected for quilts, doll bedding, and my miniature sewing projects. I only stashed Laurel Burch because I knew all of her beautiful animal artwork would be fantastic fabric to sew projects for fund raising. My obsession for Sunbonnet Sue came when the twins were born. But if I lived another 50 years, I wouldn't use up all my fabric, because I'm still buying at least 10 yards of fabric a week. I just can't help myself.
I do hope when I join the angels my family has the decency to see that most of my things are donated to charities where they will do some good. I have also told my family if my underwear is ever placed in a yard sale, I will send my wrath down on them from heaven.
I would love to see my things donated to wonderful causes. As for me, well I'm a very serious animal rescuer, and an avid supporter of animal charities. My money literally goes to the dogs. And although my family thinks I'm not only completely nuts, but selfish, I would like to see everything I own be used to raise funds for homeless pets.
So if you have a few charities in need, please share that with us. I think most on the boards here know there is just so much joy in giving, that it is always a blessing to have the opportunity to do so.
Welcome newbies, but I myself, am also a newbie, having been here only about 2 weeks.
