|My grandson wanted a wallhanging for a computer teacher he had that year. The kids were always going back and forth about PC verses Mac. At the awards night he surprised her with this wallhanging/lap quilt. He had 12 pages of blog on PC verses Mac and he got it down to 9 pages. They are interesting to read. We just tied the quilt because I was running out of time. He seems to wait till last minute for something. I enjoyed doing this

|Reader's Hints, Tips and Techniques....
When I make a quilt, I take the left over pieces and cut them into 2" or 1-1/2" squares and put them in pretty hat boxes. When I have two hat boxes filled with 2" squares, I have enough to make a twin size quilt for our local children's shelter. When I have one hat box filled with 1-1/2" squares, I have enough to make a wheel chair or lap quilt for our local Veteran's home. The people at the Veteran's home have so very little and they have done so much for our families and country. We should all as quilters seek out the closest one and get involved in any way we can. Even if you don't have time to make a quilt for one of our Veterans they will also take personal items like soaps, toothpaste, shampoo, adult diapers etc. Here in my local area each veteran has about $35.00 a month to buy all of the personal needs they may have. Well enough of my soapbox babbling. Just try to get busy for them like they did for us....Tina

As much as scissors cost these days, it's important to know how to care for them the right way. Plus, the better the care, the longer they'll last and the better results you'll get from them!
So here are a few tips on how to care for your scissors.
1. Keep your scissors in a cool, dry, safe place.
2. Regularly wipe the blades with a light coating of sewing machine oil, to prevent rust or corrosion. Don't forget a drop where the blades come together by the screw. After oiling, cut on some scrap fabric to remove any excess oil.
3. Your scissors can be washed with soap and water, but you have to dry them thoroughly and oil them too.
4. After each use, wipe off the blades to prevent build up on the blades and screw area.
5. Handle your scissors with care. When you drop them, it can knock them out of alignment, break the tips and nick the edges.
6. Respect your scissors and their uses, they are not for metal, plastic, etc. Keep the ones you use to cut your fabric in a certain spot, and use them for only this purpose.
