A sewing hint.......

I was surfing on http://www.keepsakequilting.com/ and found this hint:



                                                                        
When you’re stitching your stripes together and the patterns aren’t matching properly, you’ll have your seam ripper within reach if you do as Marleen does.
“Tape the cap from a ballpoint pen to the side of your sewing machine to use as a holster for your seam ripper. You always know where to find it.”

That is a great hint. Those rippers are small and mine is always rolling off the sewing table.. This will cure that problem.

May all your stitches be straight...........................
