    If I'm completely happy with the way I'm doing something -- it works for me without frustrations or problems -- then I usually stick with it. But I'm always completely grateful for suggestions that make what is not working for me, well, workable. So yes, I try new things....and when they are better I'm always appreciative to whoever thought of the easier way!

    In am always open to try new things and ways of doing things. I have learned much better ways of doing a lot of things on the board. We never learn if we don't try new things.

    I love to try new ideas. The Elmer's glue basting was the BEST. I hate pin basting and purchased spray basting is soooo expensive and the over spray is not fun to deal with. But Elmer's is the BOMB.

    I'm always up for new ideas and will experiment, but only as a test first. If something's easier and foolproof, I'm all in! (Maybe that's why I have so many sewing notions, lol!)

    If the new way is in an area where I am having a problem, or is something that would help me save strain on my body, especially, arms and neck, then I definitely will try it. However, if it's just another way to do something that I am already happy with the way it I do it, and it's easy for me, then I probably will just let it go.

    I believe UFOs are like scraps, ferns and dust bunnies. Once you get two, they send spores out into the air and more just happen anywhere the spores meet.

    When it comes to food, I will always buy/order something I have never had. Same goes for quilting -- always open to new experiences.

    My problem is that I buy something to try a new approach, like Clover clips, and never get around to trying them. At this point, it would take more time to find them that to do it the old way!
