Don't Iron on the Walls and Don't Flush Your Gloves
I just finished transferring my photos to the computer and have made a small slide show of our teaching trip to Pigeon Forge, TN. I didn't take a lot of pictures and many that I took were blurry, and somehow I didn't get any pictures of the Christmas Pickle class--I apologize. As a fairly new blogger, I try to take pictures that will inspire you as well as make you laugh. Two pictures that I missed taking (Becky Goldsmith got one) were two signs that read Don't Iron on the Walls, and Don't Flush Your Gloves. Now, for a little explanation..it seem's that one quilter in a class attempted to press her/his block while it was on the wall, melting the newly hung wallpaper. The other sign was very prominently displayed in several locations in the restrooms. If you were not handed plastic gloves as you walked in the door (so that you could handle the quilts on display at will) the sign seemed really peculiar. To those of us who knew about the gloves, we just shook our heads and thought "Would someone actually flush gloves down the toilet?" and yes, someone did--therefore the signs.
Enjoy the slideshow--the music is The Hills of New Zealand, by my favorite Irish group, Cherish the Ladies!
