    before you speak T.H.I.N.K.
    T is it True? H is it Helpful? I is it Inspiring? N is it Necessary? K is it Kind?

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    I don't mind mending. It serves the same purpose as quilting used to. Makes old things, broken things, odd things useful again.

    I should print it out and put it on my door of my apt. Most neighbors don't understand the difference between a quilter and a sewer!

    Saved it as wallpaper for my desktop computer. I am always changing it and when I find anything cute pertaining to quilting I save it in word and have it when I decide to change my screen which is often.

    Love this poster. I have to admit I do some mending for family and one of my neighbors - theirs are usually very simple things. But most everyone else I tell no.

    One of DD guy friends found out I could sew, and brought me a holey threadbare Tshirt and wanted me to sew leather patches on the holes. I told him "sure, just let me get my magic wand......" Silly non- sewers keep us laughing...
    If you always do, what you have always done, The results never change. Change is the wings you give yourself.
