Hey everyone! I can't believe August is gone and school is now open and back in session! It was really odd driving to work and seeing the buses out and about again, the kids all waiting on the side of the road to be picked up! Of course, this also means fall is starting to make it's move here in Michigan. A lot of the leaves are still green, but their edges are tinted with the tell tale gold and red around the edges. The pumpkins are turning a beautiful orange and the corn in the fields are drying up and getting ready to harvest. My flowers and plants are still managing to hang in there though, so far that is! The nights are getting cooler and the mornings are damp with dew and mist, all classic signs of fall. This is fine with me as I am a big fan of the fall season. Now if someone could arrange this weather to stick around all winter too, I'd be eternally grateful! Have a great week!

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 your tip to me at the address below and it will find a place in our newsletter!
1) I recommend this no-fail method of threading needles. Cut the end of your thread at a 45 degree angle. If you look at it under a microscope, you will see a sharp side point, which slides effortlessly (almost) into the hole of the needle. Barbara M., Lancaster, UK
2) I bought 2 of those rubber doorstops and placed one under each edge of the back of my sewing machine. The doorstops elevated the back a bit and I was able to view the things I was sewing much easier. Pamela H., Paducah, KY
3) I never throw away any piece of batting, no matter how small. During the holidays I make Christmas ornaments, stuffed animals, etc., and these pieces work great to stuff them with! Kristie R.
4) I have found many stores that sell office supplies will take a book and put a spiral binding on it, pretty cheap! Makes it a lot easier to read your pattern, that's for sure! Angela P., Holiday, FL
Show & Tell
FYI: We had a little problem with our Show & Tell page crashing. We managed to recover the pictures, but not the beautiful stories that go with them. If you'd like to send your story or info again, go to the Show & Tell page, find your quilt and copy and paste it in an e-mail, along with your story and send it to Terrye. I tested this method out and it did work. We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause, but we do want people to get their rightful recognition.
