a tip I read

Well, here it is, Sunday night at 1:15pm. I’m getting tired and probably should go to bed but I thought I’d pass on a tip. I can’t remember where I read this but I thought it was a good one. When you ‘re making a quilt top and you have your rows ready to assemble. Take flat head pins and number them with a sharpie pen. When you pick up your blocks, you can keep track of which row is which by sticking that rows number  pin in them.

As you can see, I haven’t sewn on the monster quilt since Monday. I will try to sew the rows together tomorrow. I did quilt 4 customer quilts this week. In fact, I just took the 4th one off the machine, I was determined to finish it tonight before I went to bed. Oh well, back to the pins, I’m using them on the monster quilt. I usually tear little pieces of paper and number them for the rows but I think the pins will be nice. I’m going to keep them in their own pin cushion. That way I’ll have them ready when I need them.

Bob’s been here now for 2 weeks! He’s growing fast and has made this his home. We enjoy sitting on the patio and watching him run and play. He’s decided that my flowers are his jungle. He goes in and then peeks out through the leaves! He’s so funny. Well, that’s it for now. I’m going to bed!! It’s been a long day.
