So, in honor of the heat and humidity, that makes you sweat by just breathing, we have hot air balloons this week! That's all I have to say about that subject, I'm holding my tongue!

      Share With Us!

      Do you have a special little tip that has worked for you that you'd like to share? We are always open to new things and would like to hear about them. Just e-mail it to me at the address below and it could find a place in our newsletter!

      1) Instead of pins that I always stick myself with, I now use a glue stick, one for fabric that will wash out, instead. It is perfect for seams that you want to match. Just a smidge on one side and then match them together. No pins to take out, just sew. JoAn E. Wenatchee, WA

      2) I, like Joanne, wash, dry, iron and fold my fabric after I purchase it. I also snip off a corner of each fabric, so that I know that one was done. Then, I put the corner into a small photo album. I can group the samples by color, designer or project, and take it with me when shopping or shop hopping! It works very well for me. That way I also don't duplicate fabrics I already have. Libby

      3) Hello! While shopping at a local G.I. Joe store for auto things, I came across a fantastic little tool. It is a detail brush for car dashes. However, it makes a wonderful lint and thread brush for the sewing machine! One end is a small brush and the opposite end is the small, red, dust mop. Works wonders and is very inexpensive at just $2.99. Sharon B. Lakewood, WA

      4) I was just at the hardware store and found a pack of 12, small artist brushes for $1.79. I use these handy little brushes to clean lint and etc. from my bobbin area. I was told never to blow into that area, as there is moisture in your breath. We all know, what moisture does to the fine parts of our machines. I found the brushes at the hardware, much cheaper than other places. Happy Quilting, Mary Lou

      Show & Tell

      Our first wonderful quilt, actually comes from a mistake! If only my mistakes looked this good! As you can see from the beautiful jacket, it didn't take Patricia long to get back on track. Thank you Patricia, for sharing your beautiful wall hanging and jacket with us!

      As my first strip-quilting project, I decided to make a Thai silk jacket. Twenty-four strip-quilted diamonds later, I realized I didn't have uniform shapes. My misshaped diamonds became a wall decoration, and I decided to try again. This time, I used cotton fabric, measured, stitched, and cut carefully. Success, a jacket! Patricia Mitchell

      Our next awesome quilt, is a wonderful tribute to an obviously well loved teacher in Mary's hometown! At a time when teachers are somewhat underrated, she had to be just ecstatic to receive this! Way to make at least one teacher feel very special and loved Mary! Thanks for sharing this with us!

      I used one of Kaye's patterns to make an appreciation gift for my children's band and orchestra teacher. The close-up photo shows where I've used embroidery to represent the four areas she teaches: Concert and symphonic band, orchestra, jazz band and music theory.

      My son plays tuba, and tuba was his teacher's own specialty, so that is why I featured the sousaphone (that's a marching tuba) in the center. I can't wait to see her reaction tonight at the band banquet. Thank you, Kaye, for the project idea! Mary D.
