Words to live by!

Quilting shouldn't be Work!
there are jobs for that!

start fresh every morning,clean,oiled and with a fresh needle!

If I sew a seam wrong two times in a row it's time to quit for the day!

Work on a UFO at least 15 minutes a day- soon it won't be a UFO!

There are no ugly quilts- Someone loves every one of them!
