PACK RAT OR HOARDER?

For over a week now, I have been helping a dear friend clean her mother's house out and prepare for an estate sale.  I tend to be a bit of a pack rat myself, sometimes bordering on the hoarder category (if you ask my dear sweet hubby anyway).  But I've decided I'm nothing compared to this woman, God rest her soul!  The task has been sooo overwhelming for my friend (and me too).  Her mom collected everything under the sun; baskets, bears, coca cola, dolls, Christmas figurines, just to name a few.  And she practiced about every hobby there is.  She apparently loved to do ceramics, scrapbooking, quilting, just about any craft (except knitting or crocheting).  I haven't found any yarn yet.  I called my my and thanked her for weeding things out of her home over the years.  My mom isn't a pack rat at all but my dad on the other hand.  Well, we're not going to talk about him right now.  Guess you could say the apple doesn't fall far from the tree! :)

Today we worked on the quilting room.  I know what you're thinking... And I personally was pleasantly surprised!  I only brought 1 kit home with me, and believe me there were plenty of kits to choose from.  And I brought home a total of 10 yards of fabric, one piece had 6 yards which I will use for a backing on a quilt and the other 2 pieces had 2 yards each.  Did you count them?  Only 3 pieces of fabric and 1 kit..... so far!  We're not quite finished in there but I'm confident I can be strong and resist!
