What is on your Mind?

This blog have different things on here, from what is on my mind to quilting items, to sewing. But, what ever it is, Sew-n on my mind.


very important for all of us quilters to remember and take this very seriously to heart. "Prepare yourself mentally for sewing. Think about what you are going to do. Never approach sewing with a sigh or lackadaisically. Good results are difficult when indifference predominates. Never try to sew with a sink full of dirty dishes or beds unmade. When there are urgent housekeeping chores, do them first so your mind is free to enjoy your sewing. When you sew, make yourself as attractive as possible. Put on a clean dress. Keep a little bag full of French chalk near your sewing machine to dust your fingers at intervals. Have your hair in order, powder and lipstick put on. If you are constantly fearful that a visitor will drop in or your husband will come home and you will not look neatly put together, you will not enjoy sewing as you should."

Used Dryer Sheets I use used dryer sheets to back quilt labels. I put the quilt label, right side down on top of a used dryer sheet. Then I sew around the quilt label. I cut a small opening in the middle of the dryer sheet and turn the label right side out. This keeps the edges in and makes a neat label, ready to sew onto the quilt. I also use the used dryer sheets as stabilizer for some machine embroidery projects. (Peggy Baker) *********************************************************** Keep an empty pop-up tissue on the clothes dryer to collect dryer as they come out of the dryer. Use them for dusting - when used especially for TV screens they do a great job in cutting down static electricity that attracts dust. (Angie) *********************************************************** I use my dryer sheets to put on the back of all my appliqué work. Just sew to the appliqué piece, cut a slot in the back, and turn the piece. I find it doesn't gum up my sewing machine needle when sewing and isn't stiff like the iron on backings. (Nona , W.V.) *********************************************************** I use my used dryer sheets as backing for paper piecing instead of paper. No need to take it out later and it gives a nice smell to the finsihed item. (Ruthie) *********************************************************** I sew 2 together and use them on my Swiffer to dust my wood floors. Works great for dust bunnies :) (Jody Jones) *********************************************************** You can use them to clean the bottom of your iron. (dorothymcnutt) ******************************************
