    Let me try that again---------------------------------I need to tattoo "A quilt on the bed is worth two in the head" onto my arm.

    I appreciate Carolynjo's comment. I don't know what saying she was talking about but I do like to learn and or keep up with grammar and spelling, etc. It is not easy for me.

    I like to learn as well because I'm a fairly poor speller, but to correct people in public is ill mannered.

    Here is one for you, if you plan to put buttons or use button fabric on your quilt.

    I love the "Press button for maid service." I should make a bunch of mini quilts and post those all over my house.
