A Significant Stash Enhancing Experience!

My mom has PAS (pattern acquisition syndrome) really bad.  In fact, there is no cure.  She buys patterns and stash a lot.  She has definitely reached SABLE- stash acquisition beyond life expectancy!

So today, after I helped her clean out a closet, I was rewarded by being able to scrounge through her stash.  She was feeling in a very generous mood. 

I picked up a pink Yazzii! (Mom had 2 so she gave me 1!)
