I was contacted by a very well known crazy quilter (she will fall about laughing when she reads this) She asked if I had thought about making my cq templates, still transparent but coloured. I answered I had but it was going to cost more. In order to keep the costs down I selected a clear plastic. Of course I asked why and she told me so they don’t get lost on the work table.
Well … I could not imagine losing the templates so to be honest did not think too much about it. Then the other day sure enough I was working and could not see for the life of me the template I was using! I turned everything on the table over, looked under things and generally got annoyed. Then bingo I saw it next to my coffee cup. Ha! it was payback for feeling smug.
Serves me right, but I smiled and decorated my templates with some cheap stickers. Floral ones to remind me of the person who made the request (she likes floral motifs) and so I can find them easily on my work table!
It works … honest.
