    Quilter's Tranquilizer

    During my shop hop today I stopped at Beyond the Thimble in Seatauket and they were so kind to give me Quilter's Tranquilizer - a bag of m&m candy with a note attached. The note read:

    Yellow - Soothes nerves when you want to buy fabric and the shop is closed.
    Red - Reduces irritation when you cannot find just the right fabric.
    Blue - reduces frustration when your stash is looking little low.
    Brown - relieves panic attacks when there is no place to hide more fabric
    Orange - Minimizes depression when you cannot get enough time to sew.
    Green - cures the urge to clean house when you could be sewing.
    Warning: May contribute to weight gain

    I had to share this with you because it made me giggle. Such a great idea!
    I've got a smile on my face, I've got four walls around me
    The sun in the sky, the water surrounds me
    I'll win now but sometimes I'll lose
    I've been battered, but I'll never bruise

    Love it! I knew they were really little pills. You always feel so much better after eating a few.

    The purpose of life is to discover your gifts.
    The meaning of life is to give your gifts away with love.

    Too cute! I now see there is reason to always keep some m&m's on hand!

    unfortunately, only Suffolk stores participated in this Shop Hop and they are in Cold Spring Harbour, East Northport, Islip, Sayville, Setautket, and Riverhead. I have never been to any of the stores in Nassau but I know of Quilting Bug in Massapequa, and Gone Sewing in Hicksville. Happy Quilting!

    We have m & m at all our quilter's workshops. One of our gals has to have them as she sews and keeps us all supplied. Love the color codes. I will have to use them. Thanks,

    Very cute idea. May use it for my quilting group. We meet twice monthly for our Sunday Sew Day (11am - 5pm).

    If there was a kind understanding quilting researcher/chemist out there we would have no calorie M&Ms when used for medicinal purposes. I take a supplement "glucosamaine" the pills are humungous. I found them in Walmart yesterday and the box said "a soft, creamy orange chew", I thought "hallelujah!" Of course the box also said 60 calories each. You have to take 3 each day. I am not using up 180 calories on supplements when they can be used for chocolate. Pass the humungous pills... it's a cold, cruel world people...

    Thanks for sharing, this would make a great stocking stuffer, hostess gifts, etc. I always knew there was a reason to keep them on hand when quilting.

    I need a lot of brown My sewing room keeps shrinking, anyone else have that problem?
    A few more blue as I work full time and do not want to go anywhere near the rotary cutter if I'm not going to be paying 100% attention to what I'm doing.

    I don't have a problem with the green
