    I use my pizza box for carring my stuff around when we go on trips. But I found out it's no fun when everything falls out. Soo now I use a flower head pin and stick it in the front and it holds the top closed. I bought a package of boxs (50) from GFS for about $10.00, and I've got enough to last me until I'm old and gray, or should I say older and grayer!

    Oh MY I'm still laughing about that cow rolling over for a rub. And a pig on the school bus! That doesn't surprise me as much.

    Mom told the baby sitter one day to keep us kids away from the water while she was gone ( we lived next to the Clark Fork) when she came home no one was in the house and after looking around she found us all with the sitter(six of us little darlins) sitting on the bank of the river where the baby sitter was crying her eyes out and we were all just laughing at her. She thought mom had said "keep the pigs out of the river"! :lol: :evil: :twisted: We only had about two dozen of em.

    Gordon Food Supply or Service, not sure which. They have stores for the public, like Sam's Club, but no fee.

    Most towns of any size have something. It is where the restaurants buy their supplies. Smart and Final, Cash and Carry, Major Sysco. Look in the phone book. Usually you have to pay cash if you do not have a business license.

    LOL - I just can't get the picture of that cow wanting her belly scratched out of my mind! What a wonderful thing :D
    Another thing you can use from a Smart-N-Final - kinda place is sandwich wrapper papers. You know, the paper they wrap burgers in? It is great to use for paper piecing, tears off easily. To put your pattern onto them, just trace it onto one, then staple a bunch together with the pattern one on top & run it thru' your machine with no thread, sewing along all the lines with a basting-length stitch.
    Uh oh, that cow is back again! :wink:

    Susan - yes I did do that quilt. It was a mystery quilt we did in my quilt class, and the first quilt I've done with an 'on point' setting!

    Hi, everyone. I am new to the site. I have just read 5 pages of posts and now have some very good storage ideas. I also have some very vivid images of cows on their backs, calves in the bedroom, chickens attacking and pigs swimming. Glad this is a fun site. I have laughed a lot since page 1. Thanks for the smiles.

    Hi Vicki:
    Our quilt group decided to do a queen -sized double Irish Chain pattern quilt for a fundraiser for one of our domestic violence Programs.....before we got the thing cut out each of us were in need of THE PROGRAM's services! Never again! Try as we might NONE of us could cut accurately, NONE of us could sew an accurate 1/4 inch seam and it's on this project we realized the brand of thread used can make the difference in the width of a seam allowance. .. not all thread with the same size number is the same size! We affectionately called this quilt "the Devil's Quilt!" One of our members finally offered to take the quilt, tear it all apart and re-do it so we can get it to the fundraising stage before all of domestic violence is irradicated in our country. Now whenever someone suggests "making a quilt" for this or that we all have the same knee jerk response....."don't look at me, I don't do group quilts!" Good for you for finishing your groups quilt.

    Easy hexagons

    Hexagons are really easy to cut and sew. Make them any size, but don't use hand piecing techniques to sew by machine. Machine sewn hexagons are so easy. Free instructions are on my website www.kayewood.com

    I use pizza boxes all the time too and I recommend my students to use them too especially when they have many different blocks to make and its good to keep them dust free and altogether in the one spotl

    Cheers

    I store my BOM in a pizza box. I work next door to the pizza shop so it's handy to pick them up.
