Today at the Cabin : Well it's October. Strange when just yesterday it was March! The leaves aren't appearing on the trees, they are falling off. The green isn't starting to show, it's turning red, and orange and yellow, and it's hunting season! Whether for food, sport or other, it's here and we are going to celebrate! So, some of you know about my computer issues, they areongoing it seems. Finally broke down and bought a new one and let me tell you, I am NOTÂ in love with Windows 8. Very user unfriendly in my opinion, but with 8+ hours a day, I'm sure I'll get used to it. (Rant Finished!)

Free Pattern - Breast Cancer Pillow....
In honor of October, which is Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Suggestion from a reader regarding the breast cancer pillow project.
Hello, I'm a survivor of breast cancer and appreciate all you are doing. However, if the pillow would be made of a heart shape, it would be great to use during the recovering time. The heart, made of flannel, can be placed under the arm for comfort and believeme it works. I used mine for sleeping and found it was a great comfort.
Thank you so much for your input. I'm sure many readers will find this useful.

Storing Your Quilts....
1. Quilts should be aired or vacuumed before storing. Use a low suction hand vac with a nylon screen to protect it from harmful pull. When airing, be sure the quilt is laying flat, protected from soil, and not in direct sunlight.
2. The ideal storage is a flat surface, properly lined with acid free material, large enough to have its own space.
3. When folding, use crumpled acid-free tissue in the folds for support. Refold the quilt every 3-6 months to minimize permanent fold lines. Rolling quilts is an option, but it does place stress on the entire quilt.
4. If the storage unit is made of wood or cardboard, it should be lined with several layers of washed, 100% cotton fabric. This is necessary to protect the fabric from chemicals in the wood or paper. Cotton liner should be washed semi-annually.
5. Covers of pre washed 100% cotton sheeting, muslin, pillow cases, or acid-free tissue paper are strongly recommended. These materials allow air to pass through and keep light and dust out. Plastic is not advised.
6. Keep the storage area clean and insect free. The herb Artemisia is a natural pesticide. Hang in the storage area or in a small bag. Do not let the bag touch the quilts!
