BIG TIP!!!! March 13 2016

KEEP THIS TIP FOREVER!!!!

 

I MEAN IT!!!!

NOT VERY LONG AGO, LORRAINE WAS IN THE SHOP CHATTING ABOUT AN INCIDENT WITH FABRIC AND

 

 

 b l o o d...

 

EVERY NOW AND THEN WE ALL STICK A PIN IN OUR FINGER. 

 

(NOT on purpose of course!!! Does anyone think quilters are that foolish????)

SOMETIMES IT JUST HURTS AND YOU THINK TO YOURSELF, "I WON'T DO THAT AGAIN."

OTHER TIMES A WEE DROP OF BLOOD SHOWS UP.

 

WE STILL THINK TO OURSELVES, "I WON'T DO THAT AGAIN."

SOMETIMES WE DON'T EVEN REALIZE WE DID IT!!!!  (WE ARE SO BRAVE AND TOUGH, US QUILTERS, AREN'T WE!?!?!?!?!)

 

 

BUT IF WE DON'T REALIZE WE DID IT, AND THERE IS A WEE DROP OF BLOOD, THE END RESULT CAN BE...

BLOOD ON OUR QUILT!!!!

 

 

I know, eh?

 

WELL, LORRAINE WAS CHATTING ABOUT THIS VERY EXPERIENCE AND WHAT DID SHE DO?   SHE SPIT ON HER QUILT!!!

 

 

 

SO I TOTALLY FORGOT ABOUT THAT.

 

FOOL THAT I AM, I THOUGHT, "THAT'S NEVER GOING TO HAPPEN TO ME."

 

 

WRONG-O!!!!

 

 

THE OTHER DAY, I WAS WORKING AWAY ON A QUILT.   ALL OF A SUDDEN I SEE BLOOD ON MY QUILT.... A LITTLE DOT OF BLOOD,  BUT NONETHELESS IT IS RED WHERE RED SHOULD NOT BE!!!!

 

 

I PANIC.

 

 

I EMAIL SUE.  

 

 

IT WAS AN SOS, HELP-ME-NOW KIND OF EMAIL!

 

THE RESPONSE FROM SUE WAS PROMPT!

 

IT CAME IN A PHONE CALL AS OPPOSED TO AN EMAIL, SO YOU JUST KNOW THE URGENCY OF THE SITUATION.

 

SUE SAID, "YOU NEED TO SPIT ON A PIECE OF COTTON AND WIPE IT ON YOUR QUILT.   JUST DO IT.   IT HAS TO BE YOUR SPIT."

SO I FOLLOWED HER INSTRUCTIONS TO A TEE!!!

 

 

AND IT WORKED!!!

 

YOUR SPIT ON YOUR BLOOD ON THE FABRIC WILL MAKE THE STAIN DISAPPEAR WITHOUT A TRACE. 

 

 

 

  I MEAN I'LL BET YOU A FORENSICS TEAM DOING THE LUMINOL TEST WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO FIND THE BLOOD.

 

IT WAS GONE-ZO!!!

 

DON'T BE LIKE ME AND THINK, "THAT WILL NEVER HAPPEN TO ME."

 

QUILTERS NEVER KNOW WHAT IS JUST AROUND THE CORNER!!!!

Later gators!
