Tips and Humor From Kaye....On Drug Stores
While teaching in The Hague in Holland, a friend of mine got sick, and we had to call the hotel doctor. He wrote a prescription, and another friend took a cab to the drug store.
NO, NO, NO1 The drus store is where they sell drugs; prescriptions are filled at the pharmacy!
A sign posted outside a drug store in Amsterdam: "5397 miles to Wall Drug Store, South Dakota."
Wow! I bet they can't wait to see that drug store!

If you cook, these are pot holders; if you don't cook, they are kitchen quilts.
A pinwheel quilt block is made from four rectangle squares. make two different pot holders with plain backs, or use one of the potholders for the front and one for the back.
The segments in each of the blocks are made the same, but the sewing steps are different.
Singer Sewing Machines....
Mother made we 3 girls everything we wore in the 1930's, some cut out of donated garments and coats for the material left in them. She did it on a Singer table top machine which I still have, lid intact. Not sure it's a cast iron as I haven't looked at it in some years. I still recall the day she ran the needle through her finger while lovingly working on one of our dresses. All I know is it was used as if on a production line. It will eventually pass on to one of my daughters who is a quilter and a talented seamstress. Reading about the awful destruction of the old models described by one of your correspondents triggered my thoughts about mother's machine which I cherish along with all the memories. What a sad story about one of the world's most famous names in the home sewing industry....Shirley

Show 'N Tell....
My boys make baby quilts for their teachers. My 13 year old son made this quilt the teacher who listened to his math abilities. He called it "A Maze of Holes." It was the first time he used the Starmaker 6. It not only won 1st Place in the Jefferson County Fair in the Senior Youth division but also Grand Champion for 18 and under! Quite proud of him!
