Rules for Quilting

1. Always buy fabric no matter how much you already have
2. Sew All Day and All Night absolutely no cooking allowed
3. Use a lot of spit for tiny droplets of blood, this always makes the quilt personal
4. Always start a new quilt before the last one is finished, this requires you to go back to step # 1

I've lived with a carpet layer going on 23 years now and like he used to yell at me. No bleeding on the dam carpet! (Fabric!) Spit is ok though. :)

Okay, Sage Sandy, I have a very important question to ask you: It is recommended that the machine needle be changed whenever a new project is started. I'm on my 100th needle since the beginning of the month. Can you advise?

I'm so glad you started an "Ask Sandy" advise column!

Cyndi

ps Also I swear my stash is starting to talk to me. Advise needed here, too.

Dear Cyndi,

Thank you very much for your question. It does sound like you have been busy. I certainly hope all our friends here are recipients of some of your many projects. My best advice to you, my Dear Friend, is to buy in bulk - Schmertz needles in the 100 needle packets are a wonderful stocking stuffer, too. Do you need a link for the best price to attach to all your e-mails between now and the Christmas holidays?

I notice you have concerns about your stash talking to you, also. That is a more serious problem that I may not be able to help you with. However, if you will take a dirty dish rag out at midnight tonight, bury it next to a rotting log in the woods, and then lay a pile of the brightest colored fabric scraps on top of the burial site you may find that the voices you are hearing are not actually from your stash . . . in that case, call the plumber.

I bid you happiness and wealth. Oh, and good health, too. By the way, you should get your hearing checked the next time you see your primary physician.

Love and good stitches,
Ask Sandy

Dear Kizzie,

Thank you for writing. Do you remember when I told you way back when not to try to buy everything you saw? Start practicing restraint now, my dear little friend. Some day, who knows when, you will see something that you absolutely have to have and you won't have the finances. Just wait a bit there's always something better right around the corner. I have so many pieces of fabric that I just HAD TO HAVE, and I cannot imagine a use for them now. Somewhere in your cards of life you may have a better opportunity to add to your stash.

Oh, and a caution about sleeping in the sewing room. Not a good idea. You need to be sleeping with that wonderful man who swept you off your feet. After all, perhaps Matilda would enjoy a little sister or a brother to play with some day.

Love and happy stitches,

Ask Sandy

Love the new rules! Think of the time we'll have to quilt if cooking is 'out-lawed'!
