    Oh, please, TWW, don't make me snort soda out my nose again. I'm going to a quilt retreat next weekend for the first time, and the image of me with the pins and bobbins all askew just won't go away. I hope it's not going to be a self-fulfilling prophecy.

    I admit nothing because I do not know how many needles I have lost in the sofa!
    They just pop out of my hand. I guess that is an admission.

    Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

    Okay, the biggest mistake that I have made was to cut the strips for a log cabin twice as big as required. Then proceed to make the full amount of blocks. Only one person in the extended family had a living room/dinning room big enough to lay this monster out for basting. And I took off a row because it was too big.

    Yes, and the other day I was sewing on a quilt when the bobbin thread ran out. I had set up a few extra with that same color thread. Couldn't remember where I'd put it. I tore the place apart & when I gave up & went to make a new one? There was the full bobbin waiting to be needed!! Man, was I disgusted!!

    This one made me laugh out loud! Love it!

    I hate it when I absent-mindedly leave my pin cushion out when I go running errands and when I get back I find that my kitten has found it and has scattered the pins all over the couch. Bless her little heart. Thank goodness the pins have the large over-sized heads on them, easy to find.
