Kaye's Quilting and Sewing Online E-Newsletter
July 27, 2004Happy last week in July everyone! Is this summer flying by or what? Each Monday at least one person at work makes that comment.
Every once in a while I come across a poem or story that tickles me and this is one of those cases. So read on and enjoy, I think you'll get a chuckle out of this too!

She learned to quilt on Monday, her stitches were very fine. She forgot to thaw out dinner, so we went out to dine.
She quilted miniatures on Tuesday, she says they are a must. They really were quite neat, but she forgot to dust.
On Wednesday it was a sampler, she says the stipling's fun. What hi-lites, what shadows, but the laundry wasn't done.
Her patches were on Thursday, green, yellow, blue and red. I guess she really was engrossed, she forgot to come to bed.
It was wall hangings on Friday, in colors she adores. It never bothered her at all, the crumbs on all the floors.
I found a maid on Saturday, now my week is complete. My wife can quilt the hours away, the house will still be neat.
Well, it's Sunday already, I think I'm about to wilt. I yelled, I raved, I ranted, the MAID has learned to quilt!
As we stated previously, throughout the rest of the summer our specials will be lasting two weeks. This ensures that people who are on vacation and busy with the summer, also have a crack at these great buys. So, I'm giving you a little leeway, but don't put it off for long.

Questions and Answers With Kaye
Q: I have to travel on a long trip and wonder what is the best way to pack my fabric and quilts to keep them safe?
K: The best rule of thumb is to let the fabric breathe. Don't pack tightly in plastic bags and such. If the fabric needs to be protected, put it inside pillowcases.
