Kaye Wood's Quilting Newsletter
July 29, 2008
Access to all the goodies on our Kaye Wood website!
Hey everyone! It's the end of July and I can hardly believe it! Summer has flown by and I have not a clue where it went! This time of the year is fun, because all of the local fairs and carnivals are coming to the area. You can always find something interesting to see, do and taste at the fair! Not to mention catching up with all the friends and neighbors you don't get to see on a regular basis! I have been taking my daughter ever since she sat in a stroller to our local fair. She enjoys it just as much now at 13 as she did when she was 2, and it's nice to see her get animated about something and let go of that whole teen vibe! Nothing like a big old bag of pure sugar in the form of cotton candy, to change a mood! So step out this month and see what's happening at your local fair. You haven't lived until you've eaten a greasy elephant ear covered in cinnamon sugar! Have a great week!

We want your tips!
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 love 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) Kaye and friends, I have several tomato pin cushions. I divided them with a permanent marker into quarters, then put needle sizes on them. I don't know about you, but when I have to change the needle to match the fabric, I forget what the previous needle was for. Now when I take one out, I put it in the tomato "sharp 14" or "uni 12" etc. Now I always know what size the needle is. Thanks for a great site, Sharon
2) When stacking your stash of fabrics on a shelf, place a sheet of acid-free typing paper between each fabric. Removing a selection from the stack becomes much easier. Claudia R.
3) I teach first grade full time and run my home and children. If I don't "block" the time then I don't get to play with fabric. I have started to "block" out time on my calendar to work on my blocks. I plan two blocks of time each week, just for me to quilt. If I get asked to do something, the calendar reminds me that this time is for me to do blocks or other quilting. I can rearrange my schedule if needed, but I try to shift the blocks so that my quilting doesn't get neglected. Dottie Allen
Show & Tell
Here is a beautiful quilt from one of our readers to view! Thanks to all of you that submit and share your quilts and stories with us. I know everyone enjoys them as much as I do!
I made this quilt for my older sister as a surprise and boy was she surprised! It took me two years to piece the top using triangle on a roll. It was the original Exploding Star quilt that I expanded to complete the points of the star. Robin

Words to live by.
If you don't lie down, no one can walk on you.
We have two ears and one mouth. Think twice, speak once!
The only thing worse than an alarm going off is the one that doesn't.
Motivation is when your dreams put on work clothes.
It's what you learn after you know it all that counts.
The greatest mistake you can make is to be afraid of making one.
Happiness is the journey not the destination.
Wisdom is what's left over after we smarten up.
If your dreams turn to dust, vacuum.Useful Links
