    Look on the previous page, it is something she wrote & printed on card stock!
    What a great idea!

    If you PM me your email, I can send you a word doc of the 12 Steps. I adapted them from the 12 Steps of AA. I found those, then as I figured out the wording to make them be for fabric, I changed the color of my printing so I could keep track.
    I put it into our quilt show & had a lady from another guild ask me if she could share it with her guild! Made my day!!!
    Thanks everyone! :D

    Wow, I'm impressed! I can see why it kept you up all night!

    My husband has found the ultimate sleep solution. Seems to work pretty well for me, because I often wake in the middle of the night and can't go back to sleep. You get up and do something mindless (computer games for me) until you get cold. You have to stay up untill you're really cold, though. Then you go back to bed where it's nice and warm, and that's usually enough to send me off the la-la land. Maybe it's because I'm just so grateful not to be freezing my *** off anymore. Anyway, 90 percent of the time this works for me and I don't have to resort to the dreaded Tylenol P.M., which makes me a zombie the next day.

    Thanks Barb M! I did make the pattern up. I knew I wanted it jaggedy, and I drew it out, thinking I could just use that as a paper piecing template. Uhhhh NOPE! I'm sure there is a way you could do it, but I couldn't figure out a way to do it all together with the 'jags' going in different directions. I ended up using the paper pieces, but all cut apart. Each "jag" of blue & white was a separate paper, then I sewed them into 1/2 of the frame, then the two sides of the frame were sewn together. The center, where the card stock with the printing is, is actually open & I sewed the paper behind it.
    Isn't it fun to see what happens when nobody tells you "you can't do that!"?? :!:
