I love that. A few years ago we were asked to make fabric fortune cookies for a departing president of our guild and to put a fortune in the cookie. I would have loved to have had that one.

Great one. I had that feeling when I first started quilting, now I am down to two or three.

One of the best fortune cookie messages I have seen!

And our "game" at Chinese restaurants is to add "in bed" to whatever the fortune says... not so funny this time but usually good for a chuckle in a group...

What a hoot! It is always bazaar when a cookie fortune comes up something that applies to you perfectly.

I have actually been in a fortune cookie bakery where they make them in San Francisco. It was a very small, dark place that seemed to have tinker toy machinery that was really complicated looking. In this place, the fortune cookie was folded by hand and the person taking the cookie off the line not only had to be fast at folding them, but had to have asbestos fingers because the cookies were really hot when they came off of the line. The gentleman telling us how they were made said that the people doing this job had been doing them for so many years that the heat from the cookie no longer bothered them. Wow!

That is lovely! What a great way to start a life together, stars aligned

I usually do measure more than even twice. Not a perfectionist just a little lightheaded at times.

What a cool fortune for a quilter. Tessagin, I too tend to measure more than once -- sometimes my eyes don't focus right (and I am not yet a candidate for cataract surgery).
