    I appreciate Carolynjo's comment. I don't know what saying she was talking about but I do like to learn and or keep up with grammar and spelling, etc. It is not easy for me.

A boarder is someone who pays to live in your home; border is the finishing edge on something: quilt, wall paper, or pictures. Please don't be offended by my comments; I just like to set the record straight.

    I like to learn as well because I'm a fairly poor speller, but to correct people in public is ill mannered.

    Here is one for you, if you plan to put buttons or use button fabric on your quilt.
    "Press button for maid service. If no one answers do it yourself."

    I love the "Press button for maid service." I should make a bunch of mini quilts and post those all over my house.

    Is there a way to get these sayings printed. Neat sayings but I can't write them all down.

    Copy and paste in your word document and hit print. You can also save the doc and add to it later. I hope this helps.

    I know whad you meen. I, personally, never make such errors. I specialize in typos.

    To every one else, relax..... Is the lady who whispers to you telling you your skirt is tucked into your panties a fashion police? It ain't too late to learn, unless your dead.

    I've always liked, "She who dies with the most fabric didn't sew fast enough." ANother good one is, "A bad day quilting is better than a good day working."
