Two Question Tuesday - 7/19/11

Two Question Tuesday – 7/19/11

Here's the deal - I really liked Mama M.'s Five Question Friday - but that's just too many questions for me.  So I'm going to do my version - and without the linky thingy.

I'll ask two questions and then give you my answers.  If you want to play - you can give me your answers in the comment section.  If you have a blog and would rather answer them there - just leave a link to your blog instead.  I don't know how to do the "Linky" thing like Mama M. yet - and to be honest - I would rather sew than find out - so I'll do it this way until I figure it out.

Two questions for you this Tuesday -

1.  Decaf or regular?

2.  What is your favorite quilting "rule"?


1.  Decaf or regular?

REGULAR - what a stupid question!
I like the LEADED stuff - one of my mugs has a variation of the cold medicine rhyme -
Coffee:  the "nine to five keep me awake calm my nerves perk me up so I can work" medicine.  It sits on my desk along with the one that says TAKE A NUMBER - 4,768 - NOW SERVING - 9.  Story of my life.

2.  What is your favorite quilting "rule"?

Rule #1 - Don't Forget that YOU ARE LEFT-HANDED!

Every time I forget this "rule" - I usually get into some sort of trouble that I could have easily avoided if I had remembered.  If I had flipped something - reversed something - compensated somehow for being left-handed - my life could have been so much easier.  The quilt or quilt block could have gone together much more easily.  And I probably wouldn't have cussed as much.  Maybe.


OK - your turn.

If you have a "rule" that you would like added to my list - let me know.
I recently added Sue's rule for quilt shops - check it out.

Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -


  1. Regular. A skinny decaf? I'd rather drink a glass of water. lol One of my fave places to visit for coffee is... http://milkd.com.au/

    My favourite rule (for the next five minutes at least) is....Even when I'm wrong I'm right.

  2. #1 - I start my day with regular. If I want coffee in the evening, I'll have decaf.
    #2 - Rule #4 - "Don't be afraid to annoy the quilt police" - I find that those who think there certain ways to do something (the police) usually don't have a clue how to do squat!

  3. 1) No decaf for me. Three regular in the morning and then that is it for the day

    2) Measure twice and cut once. I tend to want everything done yesterday,so sometimes I can get really hurty-gurty. There have been days when I measured multiple times and it still came out wrong.


I love reading your comments -
they let me know that I'm not just talking to myself - ;))

FYI - I have always restricted comments to “Registered User” - and I have always moderated my comments - and I will continue to do so. I like to read your comments before I publish them - and I DO publish ALL of them - whether you agree with me or not. The only ones that I DO NOT publish are the “buy-me” and "spam" crap.

So - if you want to leave a comment but don’t like your word verification choice - hit the little arrow thingy to the right of the box until you find one that you DO like. I can’t always read them either but word verification is there for a reason and I refuse to be bullied into taking it off - ;))
