    Cool Quilter's Ten Commandments

    This came this morning in a newsletter and I LOVED it. Though you might too ~

    QUILTER'S TEN COMMANDMENTS

    Thou shalt not do buttons.
    Thou shalt sew 1/4" seams.
    Thou shalt leave no bolt unturned.
    Thou shalt not rip, only un-sew.
    Thou shalt not envy thy neighbors stitches.
    Thou shalt never pass a quilt shop.
    Thou shalt cook and clean but once a week.
    Never quilt tomorrow what you can quilt today.
    Thou shalt not covet they neighbors stash

    I'm having trouble with number 5. Just got back from visiting a fellow quilter and trying hard not to compare my abilities with hers. She's got a real flare for design and color.
