We are kind of in opposite directions from town, but there are places half way in between that we can meet for lunch ---PERFECT! It was fun to catch up and we promised to get together more often.
Doesn’t life go like this for you?
“I was going to call you, but thought you’d be busy.”
“I know you’ve been traveling.”
“I know you are busy in your longarm business with customer quilts and it’s close to the holidays”
In my book there is no such thing as “Pestering a friend!” sometimes the suggestion of lunch is just the seed we need to put some time aside, and if there isn’t an email or text or phone call saying “Hey, let’s get together” it is too easy to fill the day and the week and the month with other “must do’s” and the friend time never shows up at the top of the list.
If you have a friend you haven’t seen in a while – don’t be afraid they are too busy to hear from you! You might just be the breath of fresh air and the push and the shove that they need to take some time for themselves in their otherwise busy crazy life. I think we were that to each other today.
SO where does the title of this post come into play?
I had some students show me a very cool thing in Portland – and after lunch today I trotted over to CVS to pick up some Nexcare banadage tape.
It has a very rubbery waffle-y texture ---it’s clear ---and it helps keep rulers from slipping!
Bandage tape! REALLY!
I should have guessed this would be a 3M product!
3M also makes the re-stickable strips I consider the Best Seam-Guide Ever!
If you look close here you can see a square of the tape on the backside of my ruler – I can easily still read the numbers through the tape…let’s give it a try!
I give this a complete thumbs up! It didn’t drag on the fabric like sand paper dots do….and it kept the fabric from shifting while I was cutting. Give it a try – I think you’ll like it!
Still planning on Quilt-Cam at 9pm Eastern. Catch you then!
