The robins are back, the robins are back! This is always the deciding factor to me that spring is definitely on the way, when I see a robins hopping around in the front yard. I can't wait for things to start turning green again, for the flowers to start blooming and for the weather to be warm enough to get out the patio furniture! It won't be this week, but hopefully soon. I can hang in there a little bit longer I guess...like I have a choice! Hope things are starting to bloom in your neck of the woods! Have a great week everyone!

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) Okay, here is a tip courtesy of Gail R., (I have to give her credit or she might do me harm LOL) I don't want to steal her thunder. I think it's pretty good and if you're into recycling, even better. Use the container that your 100 CD's came in for a variety of things.
Lid-Good for storing your scissors, rotary cutters or short rulers.
Round Disc-Good for a perfect, round template.
Spindle-Good for holding a cone of thread.
Hope that you will use MY tip! Helen S., Waterford, ON, Canada
2) In regards to using the Pringle canister for crochet hooks. I used them until I noticed that the metal rim nicked my long crochet hooks. If you use them, cover the rim. I have also found that a long prescription bottle works well for this too. Thanks for listening. Janice F.
3) I use a child's pencil box to hold my sewing necessities. It's always right beside my machine and has everything I need neatly stored away. My plastic pencil box holds my pins, scissors, pencil, fabric marker, seam ripper, assorted small buttons and a vinyl pencil case where I keep two rotary cutters. There's always a small amount of free storage space for anything I might need to store, until I can get it to the correct place in the fabric closet. Jim (Yes, there are many male quilter's in the world...it's something my wife and I enjoy doing together.)

Show & Tell
Here is a beautiful quilt from one of our readers. Thanks to all of you that submit and share your quilts and stories.
This was made by Sadie Quinlan from the charm squares that Caroline's provided for the Kaye Wood event in West Branch, MI. Her Mom Nancy attended the event and the next day they made this purse. I think it's great to see young people sewing and being creative. Sadie is 17 years old. Kathleen

Things that make you go hmmm?
- Why do we leave cars worth thousands of dollars in the driveway and put our useless junk in the garage?
- How can a pizza get to your house faster than an ambulance?
- Why do we use answering machines to screen calls and then have call waiting, so we won't miss a call from someone we didn't want to talk to in the first place?
- No one ever says, "It's only a game," when their team is winning.
- Tell a man there are 400 billion stars and he'll believe you. Tell him a bench has wet paint and he has to touch it.
- A closed mouth gathers no feet.
Expecting what? Well, that's for us to know and you to find out! Each week we'll be giving hints in our letter to help you figure out what is going on, so keep checking.
This weeks hint: It's bigger than a pack of gum.
