Quilt With Us

Hello Everyone,

I hope everyone had a great Christmas and spent time with their loved ones.

In keeping with my resolution to start the New Year with a clean slate, I started cleaning up my files relating to quilting.  Except that I really didn't want to delete any file at all.

Below is something I have copied from an old quilting magazine, I hope I am not infringing on any copyright.

BJ, I was thinking of you as I was reading this one.

Quilter’s Tranquilizer

A bag of M&M’s with the following note”


Yellow - Soothes nerves when you want to buy fabric and the shop is closed.
Red - Reduces irritation when you cannot find just the right fabric.
Blue - reduces frustration when your stash is looking little low.
Brown - relieves panic attacks when there is no place to hide more fabric
Orange - Minimizes depression when you cannot get enough time to sew.
Green - cures the urge to clean house when you could be sewing.

Warning: May contribute to weight gain!

Did I miss any color?

Red has been my favorite lately.  Ever try to match stash from the 80's with today's fabrics - almost impossible!

This is just too cute. It would have to be green and orange for me.

I sure am glad that my great grandson insists that I keep plenty of M&M's on hand.  That is usually the first thing he wants when he walks thru the door.

TOOO Funny...it's green for me too. We need a color for those of us who don't care what our sewing rooms look like and just forge on with new projects and fabric regardless. ( I do clean my room but it's only to start a project so it stays clean for..........10 second,  some cleaning days may last......1 min)

LOL - perfect!  I think GREEN just became my favorite color. These are great.  I have to tell you, my sister got us a motion activated candy machine, filled with red and green M&M's so that takes care of urges and irritations!

Aida -That is right!  I hope it works for the peanut kind as well as chocolate on the inside.  I  think I will buy in quantity because one cannot afford to suffer any of those above mentioned yucky things ever :)
