Tomorrow I will finish the other floors and laundry. I also hope to finish sewing the rest of the binding on my quilt so I can start another. Will be going to bed soon. I'm tired.
WOW that sounds more than productive, more like spring cleaning. I had to wash walls and clean&rehang pictures after remodel of bathroom and kitchen walls. that I class as my biggest cleaning job in a long time. Good luck on finishing up, hope you had a good nights rest.

Because of the work I do, I have to keep good files. Get yourself an inexpensive file box, actually any box that you can put sorters labeled A-Z. You can start with A for applique and on down the line. I have mine in a large binder right now but will transfer to a clear file I already have. You can also to Office Depot or Office Max or staples. Any office supply store will do, They have hanging files that you can see through.

jmoore I had a lingering cough for a long time over a year (almost 2). I was on Lisinopril for blood pressure. My doctor changed my script. I had the cough so bad at times that I could hardly talk without coughing. It affected my job. Every time I turned around, I was coughing with almost every breath. The script change made a big difference. Also, I have an upper denture that hasn't fit right from day one. If I use too much adhesive, it makes me cough. Almost all blood pressure medications side effect includes a persistent cough. My chest exrays all showed clear with no signs of pneumonia or anything else. I coughed so hard one day, I cracked 3 ribs. I have scoliosis (curvature of the spine) and believe me that didn't help. I rarely cough any more and am able to conduct business (on the phone a lot)and relax. A simple change of script may be all that's needed.

Now that you've spent $8 on a new pattern, the old one is sure to turn up

I started doing the same thing until I finally decided to put the pattern name,page etc. on the mag. cover. I collect Sunbonnet Sue patterns so when I find one I write the page # on front so I can find it again. Hope this idea helps.

So glad to hear I'm not the only one who does this. I once had to buy a replacement pattern for one I "put away someplace safe" and never did find.

I always keep a couple of quilting magazines in my truck that way if I go somewhere I have to do a wait I have a magazine to read, also read them while hubby is driving us on a trip. When I'm done with a magazine it then gets stored in my craftroom, seldom do I read a quilt magazine at home, it's usually always waiting somewhere or on a trip.

Well that's a bummer! I have seen directions to that online for free....about.com ar some such place. Maybe it wasn't the same pattern? So share your most recent quilt photo with us so we all can enjoy.
