    I like the pretty folders, with the pocket on each side. When I pull stuff from quilt mags, I use the folders... Also, for patterns I print off, templates, whatever. Nice to way to organize a project too...

    Those black and white composition books make nice gifts when a soft fabric cover is added to them. Check on the board for a few tutorials on how to make them.

    I think I buy more glue sticks than anything else. DH said I went through my six pack of glue sticks faster than he did his six pack of beer :shock: I also use double sided scotch tape.
