    Pins and my rotary cutter.....Pretty much they are my new BFF's. We are tight light salt and pepper....like, gin and juice...like, my mom and dad.....like, a needle and thread....like, peanut and butter....like, chocolate and me.
    You get the point, right? ok, so yeah.....it's late. I really like quilting stuff ok...and chocolate. and I like the idea of winning something. Even though I am totally NOT able to win!

    oh my gosh. What a lady! I guess with a hundred years of practice, it'd be silly to stop just when you get good.

    Well I couldn't figure out how to put an image in so close your eyes and imagine my favorite tool....a sewing machine! And truly any sewing machine. I even have a old treadle machine in case the power goes out as I would still have to sew. I always say I am born for underwater basket weaving and I just gotta have something for my hands to do. So I sew and sew and sew! It relaxes me, calms me, makes me feel competent, and is productive too. I love my machine!

    Re: Week 3- Tools: Not just for the guys!

    I am so torn, I love all my sewing tools!! I can not believe how many things I have made and what I have continued to learn. The ease I have found in cutting w/ my mat, rotary cutters and ruler or sewing on my new Janome HT2008 sewing machine, perhaps my spring loaded scissors which I dub "snippers". I put them down and ask my husband "where are my snippers?????" Heaven forbid he should use them....I would say the fact that Robert bought me my Janome for my birthday last June...well it has hardly been put up the last 9mns.

    Now that I have met w/ MSQC, I see more on the horizon...Thanks for inviting me to class last week. Wow to see that cute table runner I made is sitting on the coffee table. Now I want to make more. TODAY I am making my 1st deal of the day purchase...Yeah!

    I would say that MSQC is my Favorite Store (tool).

    Okay...not to put down anyone who has an expensive "does everything but cure cancer" sewing machine...but it really warms my heart to see another person who has just a regular sews in a line and a few other simple ways sewing machine...I usually feel so inadequate when it comes to my sewing machine...especially since it was *whisper* bought on sale at Target....but hey .... at least we got the quilter's version..

    I have picked up more help, inspiration, and information from this site then I ever thought possible, and those reasons alone have made this site my most prized and favorite tool. I have made friends (I think ) and have found a place to call my quilting "home".
    I was very torn.........because I agree with her 100 percent. So for me it is a tie between my sewing machine and Missouri Star Quilt Company. I have learned sooooooooo much from all the girls, at the store and on the website. I just love the tutorials.....Have I mentioned that to anybody lately. LOL Remember I told you I have trouble deciding on just one "favorite" tool.

    AGREED! Mary you've got the one I would die without. Seriously, if you know how to wield this weapon, you can save TONS of time!

    I think that's mine too! I'll tell you why...

    #1 I hate to cut. Seriously, I dread the cutting process so much it's why I don't get as many projects done as I'd like.

    #2 I find ironing therapeutic. Maybe it's just me, but there's something wonderful about creating perfection and ironing fabric all crisp and neat is perfection in small form.
