It is NO Secret that I am
sometimes Directionally Challenged.
It's the main reason I couldn't get hired on at the local CHEVRON Gas Station,
that and the smell of gasoline made me puke!
They (being HiHoney (husband) and his Brother David...owners of said Station) wouldn't even let me be a
window washer or cashier for fear that someone would ask me for directions.
Now that I think about it, I probably did....have them...just didn't realize what they were for. You see, they were a Door Prize and such a surprise that I immediately put them away for using on something extra special. I mean look at that neat box and the pins were wrapped in cellophane and the whole thing was well.....just too fancy and new fangled. There, I've admitted my fear of the 'New Fangled' anythings!
Whew, I feel better. I bet you had no idea this post would turn out to be QuiltPsycho101.
There's THREE reasons why I am finally getting them out to use.
#1. New Years Resolution...Use It or Lose It
Yep, in 2013 there will be no more PackRatting of Fabric and Notion Stashes.
There will be MORE Embroidery Machine and Serger Useage.
#2. The Winter White Friendship Exchange IS an Extra Special Event.
#3. I've gotten over Fancy New Fangled Fear.
And, I had to figure out what these Arrowed-Lettered Pins had to do with Quilting!
At first I thought the 'R' stood for 'RunRightOver'.
I mean, have you ever seen a skinner pin that you could sew right over and not break a needle?
Then I noticed that the ARROW was pointing to the RIGHT.
OMG...the 'L' Arrow points LEFT.
Eureka...the 'D' is pointing DOWN and the 'U'...how obvious, Sue!
See, I told you I was Directionally Challenged!
piecing of these Beacon Light Blocks for the
Winter White Friendship Exchange.
You might want to RunRightOver them, too!
I ordered EXTRA Rights and Lefts....I'm pretty good with Up and
(just noticed the 'D' pin...mmmm...guess I'll add 'D' pins to order)
