    Barri, I'll remember to include some Jewish Holiday stamps for you..I purchased a couple of clear plastic cases that have 1-1/2" sections in them from Joanns..they sell for $3.99 and used a 50% off coupon...the stamps fir perfectly flat or standing sideways...what's nice about the case is that it has an attached clear lid that snaps closed and they can't slide around and if it falls the lid stays closed.

    This would happen at my house for sure if my to fluff muffs got into my sewing room I try to keep them out it is up stairs and we have a gate but sometimes one of the kids does not get the gate closed then they get up here. One of them loves to grab a spool of thread and run and hide under my king size bed where he knows I can not reach him

    I thought I had finally decided on a pattern until I saw this one.

    Link didn't paste. I'll be right back!

    I use the styrofoam trays that meat come on, the big ones hold exactly 20 stacks, then I cover with plastic cling wrap and put in bookcase where the cats can't get, well they haven't found them yet!

    My male indoor cat Stewie, loves knocking over the beads when I am making necklaces, and I think he hides waiting for me to get up and leave them alone for 1/2 a second. All over the floor in no time, I don't work with beads much anymore. Bella is the one who will make a mess of the thread, or rolls of ribbon. I finally figured out that she thinks she is helping, so she has her own roll of ribbon, and she is so smart she knows where I keep it!

    Both of them will find ways into the sewing room no matter what we do, so I have given up and just let them roam freely, they are good company at night when I sew and they are so funny! if they get to close to the sewing I get out their laser light, they will chase it for hours.
    Give a smile away today, someone you meet might need one!

    Cute! I've seen a similar one with 100 patch squares. Thanks for sharing.

    I am glad to hear it is ok to make more than one PSQ. I will have more than enough squares to finish my first PSQ after this swap. I have already started collecting for my next one!

    I think my hand hurts from cutting. I have so many scraps from all over that I can't keep up with it. Right now I am cutting for myself, and will have a ton for the next swap. I started cutting for the PSQ last Jan, and expected to have a problem with not having enough without using duplicates. If I calculated right, I have enough for a king size plus.
    Am I having fun? I sure am.
