    Well thats what they said! I read that when learning to use a sewing machine on a frame that a glass of red wine would help. For some reason the tension(mine) is at about an 8 and I hold my breath. So what the heck I'll give it a try, and you know they were right! Those wonky stitches dont look so bad after all! So when I post a picture of the quilt I'm working on you all have a little nip and those wonky stitches will look great!

    ha ha i heard that about having a baby to a glass off wine is suposed to take the edge off t he pain. i think you might need more than a glass for that though maybe a bottle?

    I'm a WIMP. If I had a nip of a-n-y wine you'd find me sleeping face down at my sewing machine. I'm a "Sugar Free Red Bull" kinda gal....LOL

    I don't like the taste of alcohol drinks of any kind, but, I do try to stay relaxed and that seems to help. Do what works for you, just relax.

    Hmm, not while I'm quilting, but maybe before viewing the finished product for the first time.

    WOW, no telling what kind of design you come up with.
    Have another glass and its going to look wonderful.
    My first try without wine is a real keepsake. Im sitting on it right now, makes a great seat cover.

    I'm in the process of making grape wine right now - and when cleaning up after the wine works over the edges of the jars, yesterday i decided to sip a bit of the run-off - the rest of the day went so smoooooooooooooooooooooth!!! :) You'd be surprised!

    P.S. The wine is not officially done till the first week of december, but it sure was good already yesterday!
