Don't let the difficulties of the present moments overshadow the reality of God's promises. God's promises still stand. And God's promises are stronger than our failures.

Paper towels for practice pieces. I never would have come up with that trick. I think it is a great idea. Thanks for sharing it.

Thanks so much for passing this tip along. I've tried the free motion thing and typically end up quite frustrated as it's not as nice as I would like. I'm going ot give this a try!
You should be receiving a package sometime this week. I finally mailed it Friday morning. Sorry for the delay. No excuses, just couldn't get my act together. :(

I LOVE that tip! I have been avoiding practicing because I didn't want to waste quilt sandwiches - this idea has set me free! LOL

I use paper towels a lot, when I am cleaning, oiling, and test sewing with orphan sewing machines. Saves on wasting that valuable fabric!

Great tip! I have been thinking of doing a sewing tip post this week too. I've heard/read a couple of good ones.
