tip #5 count your needles

I don't do a lot of hand quilting any more, but when my children were younger, I always worked with three needles. That way, when I would inevitably be bounced upon by a child, I knew exactly how many needles to look for when picking things up.

I'm a counter too. I always know how many pins or needles I have in action.

Smart tip! I'll keep that in mind when I start my hand quilting soon. You never know when they 'need' a hug!
