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.
Flying Is Good For A LaughFlying from Michigan to Phoenix, the John Wayne-type pilot came on and told us, in his smooth, I-am-in-control voice, that one of our engines was smoking, and he would have to shut it down. He also said that he had to shut the engine down on the opposite side so we would stay level. That made sense to me.
He smoothly explained that when he did this, it would feel like we were momentarily flying backward, but that we would have no problem flying with the two remaining engines. And it happened exactly the way he said it would.
Soon, JW came on the PA and said one of the remaining engines was starting to cause problems so he was going to have to shut it down. He sounded so much in control that no one seemed to panic, because he was in charge and he said, "No problem." Where have I heard "No problem" before?
The way I figured, he was also going to have to shut down both remaining engines and two from the two remaining engines doesn't leave you with much.
The JW said we were going to land in Kansas city and they were looking for another aircraft for us. Where do you look for an aircraft? You either have one or you don't.
In the meantime, they offered us free drinks.
I fly a lot. My advice is that when they offer you free drinks, take them.
After a short time in Kansas City, we were on our way with JW to Phoenix. And every one of us got back on the plane.
A short time later, JW came on the speaker and said we had to slow down and take it easy going into Phoenix because a military plane without landing gear was making an emergency landing and that it would be a good opportunity for us to see how it looks from the air when they foam the runway. Boy, was he smooth! I just knew that foam was for us. We circled the field, and it was interesting, but then we did see the military plane land.
Now do you really think JW was as calm and in control as we all thought he was?

Q and A With Kaye....
Q: I love the rolling idea with the wire baskets to separate your colors. But what do you do with those prints on white background, the all over different color, or the holiday ones?
A: Seasonal prints go all together, otherwise, I use the most prominent color or the background color and put them in the corresponding bin. You could create your crazy bin too, for all those off beat fabrics. The main thing is to have a system that works for you.
Q: I want to know why my wallhangings are always lumpy? I use good fabric and cotton batting and still get a lumpy look.
A: Without seeing it, it's hard to say why it's like that. I can suggest that you be sure to use bonded or needlepunch batting and put in lots of quilting stitches.
Q: When a cutting board is warped, is there any way to restore it to it's flat state? Also, what is the easiest and best way to store them to avoid warping?
A: The only thing you can do that I know, is to lay it flat on top of a dryer or out in the hot sun, with something heavy covering the whole top of it. They really need to be stored flat, this is a must. Try under the bed or couch, and keep it covered to prevent dust and dirt from getting on it.

This is the Iron I Want....
I have used several different cordless irons over the years. My personal favorite is the Panasonic, although it does not have all the things I want in an iron. E-mail both Panasonic and Janome to tell them you want the iron Kaye Wood wants: Cordless, NO steam (the bottom completely flat with no holes), no auto shut-off, Teflon bottom, in a heat-proof fabric carrying case which opens into a pressing mat. This iron would be ready to take to class and could be packed up while still hot.
Show and Tell....I just loved the fabric and really didn't know what to do with it and then I remembered your diamond shapes.They are so easy to do and I will be making many more things out of them.
