Smile Fortune Cookie Advice for Quilters!

Do you believe this came in a fortune cookie I got the other night? You could have knocked me over with a feather!
I've heard measure-twice, that's what carpenters say, but this cracked me up!

Leave it to Chinese to be super cautious! And on a very few occasions, I have measured twice and still messed up, so maybe 10 will be my safety number!

Never heard that one before. I do check my measurements twice as the old carpenter's saying goes.

I hope you've enlarged that and tacked it near your cutting table. Funny, funny. I've been known to measure 3 times and still get it wrong. That's when I switch gears or go to bed!

How appropriate for us sewers but I never measure more than twice. You probably thought someone picked that certain fortune cookie just for you!!! LOL

That is too funny. On the night my husband and I got engaged, we went to a Chinese restaurant. When I opened my fortune cookie it said, "You will have a wonderful marriage." I kept it and put it in a photo album. We have been together for 31 years.

�� That is so sweet!!
that is one I definitely would still have!

my sister used to save every fortune. Put them on her mirror. She thought that each and every one was truly designed for her . I was there one day reading her "mirror of good fortune" and I said, hey, I got this one the other night at dinner. Shattered her dreams! Funny. I felt kinda bad, I didn't know.....

there definately are are times you get a fortune that really applies to something in your life and I do feel it was destiny
