Used Dryer Sheets

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.

Enjoy Sewing

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."
I made some Garbage Bag dispensers to go on Etsy i have not used the site so this is the first time, one of my friends use them all the time. I don't know how to price them but i will think of something before i put them on there i have a few more go do by putting on the casing. the picture don't do them justice they are really pretty.

God Has Kept Me Here For A Reason

God Has Kept Me Here For A Reason

Repeat after me: God has kept me here for a reason. I survived because

He has a plan for me. All my bad relationships, the addictions, the

consequences, the bad credit, the repossessions, the death of my

loved ones, the back stabbing from my friends, the negative thoughts, or

the lack of support; I made it because I am blessed!

I release and let go of all past hurts, misunderstandings and grudges

because I am abundantly blessed! I recognize them as the illusions

they are, and sent from the enemy to kill my spirit, steal my joy, and

destroy my faith;

For God is all there is. All else is a lie! Now give

yourself a hug, wipe your tears away and walk in victory!!!!!!!! I love

you, but more importantly God loves you BEST! Be blessed and know

that you are at one with THE SPIRIT OF THE LIVING GOD! And may the

Lord keep watch between you and me when we are away from each other.

Genesis 31:49. Amen!

Now since you are a true child of God, you know that with every

blessing, a blessing is required! So bless others with this message.

You never know when God is going to bless you!!

You never know when God is going to bless you!! Good things happen when you least expect them to !!!!!!!! Dear Lord, I thank You for this day, I thank You for my being able to see and to hear this morning. I'm blessed because You are a forgiving God and an understanding God. You have done so much for me and You keep on blessing me. Forgive me this day for everything I have done, said or thought that was not pleasing to you. I ask now for Your forgiveness. Please keep me safe from all danger and harm. Help me to start this day with a new attitude and plenty of gratitude. Let me make the best of each and every day to clear my mind so that I can hear from You. Please broaden my mind that I can accept all things. Let me not whine and whimper over things I have no control over. And give me the best response when I'm pushed beyond my limits. I know that when I can't pray, You listen to my heart. Continue to use me to do Your will. Continue to bless me that I may be a blessing to others. Keep me strong that I may help the weak... Keep me uplifted that I may have words of encouragement for others. I pray for those that are lost and can't find their way. I pray for those that are misjudged and misunderstood. I pray for those who don't know You intimately. I pray for those that will delete this without sharing it with others I pray for those that don't believe. But I thank You that I believe that God changes people and God changes things. I pray for all my sisters and brothers. For each and every family member in their households. I pray for peace, love, and joy in their homes; that they are out of debt and all their needs are met. I pray that every eye that reads this knows there is no problem, circumstance, or situation greater than God. Every battle is in Your hands for You to fight. I pray that these words be received into the hearts of every eye that sees it in Jesus' name. Amen! If you prayed this prayer, change the number in the subject box before forwarding the message so people can see how many other people have done so. God Bless ! ! ! ! !
