Tips and Humor From Kaye....
Kaye meets many people and sees many things while she travels. She always comes back with a couple of humorous stories to tell. Here is one of them.
Eating in Restaurants
You Wouldn't Like What You Ordered
Has this ever happened to you?
Four of us ordered our food, and we all ordered something different. When our dinner arrived, I had the same thing as one of the other people.
"Is this what I ordered?"
The waiter said, "You wouldn't have like what you ordered."
Chicken in a Bowl
What would you think that was? I thought it would be like a chicken pot pie, so I ordered it.
The waitress asked, "Are you sure that's what you want? It's a chicken in a bowl."
And that is what it was. A whole chicken sitting in a bowl of clear broth.
If I had had the same waiter as above, he would have said nothing, just brought me something else to eat.

Amish Quilt Trivia....
The Amish did not bring quilt-making to America. they learned it from their "English" neighbors.
Quilts are the third-largest source of income for the Amish, after farming and woodworking; most Amish women quilt during the winter months, when gardening and farming chores have subsided.
Quilts are a traditional Amish wedding gift. Most women give each child at least one quilt to take to their new home.
When a family moves to a new Amish settlement, they may have to sell their quilts or store them away if they do not conform to the unwritten rules of the new church district.

Show 'N Tell....
Q and A With Kaye....
Q: How do you add more inches to the width of a quilt that is already done.
A: You have to add strips of fabric and batting. First you have to remove the binding either by taking out the stitches or cutting it off.
Then sew 1 strip right side to the top, sew 1 strip, right side to the back with your batting underneath. Open up the strips and the batting is in the middle.
Continue to add in this manner until the quilt is as big as you desire.
Bind as usual.
Q: What is the best way to wash a large amount of flannel before it's used for quilt backing?
A: Before you wash, accordion fold the fabric together and pin the selvedge edges using large pins. This will make it easier to handle before
and after it is washed.
Have a great week, everyone!
Have a GR8 Labor Day Weekend, and if you happen to be in Isaac's path, please stay safe!
