I have a friend who sent me this text and decided we all need a good laugh!
Here it goes!
It is 2023..... I'm old, worn out, and I still have so many unaswered questions!!!!
I haven't found out who let the dogs out, where's the beef, or how to get to Sesame Street.
Don't know why Dora doesn't just use Google Maps, why all the flavors of fruit loops taste
exactly the same, or how many licks does it take to get to the center of a tootsie pop !!!!
Why eggs are packaged in a flimsy carton but batteries are secured in plastic that's tough as nails.
What does the fox say or why "abbreviated" is such a long word.
Why is there a D in 'fridge' but not in refrigerator, why lemon juice is made with artificial flavor, yet dish-
washing liquid is made with real lemons.  Or why they sterilize the needle for lethal injections and why 
do you have to "put your two cents in" but it's only a "penny for your thoughts" where's that extra penny 
going to ????  Why does The Alphabet Song and Twinkle Little Star have the same tune, why did
you just try to sing those two previous songs?
And just what exactly is Victoria's secret? and Where is Waldo?  Can you hear me now?
And do you really think I am this witty ??? I actually got this from a friend, who stole it from her
brother's girlfriend's uncle's cousin who lived next door to an old classmate's mailman!!!!
I hope you enjoyed the fun text as much as me!! 
I hope you have some great projects lined up for 2023!
I just recently made a cuddle sack for a little baby!  I did line it and put a zipper in.  It was easy, peasy!
So adorable! 
It's a great time to make infinity scarves!.  So you don't have to watch a tutorial I will give you a few hints.
Did you know You can make 3 scarves with one yard of fabric!  These make great gifts!
After cutting the yard make sure the selvages are matching.  Cut a 20" piece going the length.  You may need 
an additional ruler for cutting. Now cut another 20" piece.  The last piece is on the fold so you will only have 
one seam.  Turn fabric right sides together and pin and sew. Tip:  I like to double pin ,meaning pins are
going both ways to help the fabric from stretching. Turn the tube right side out and take one seam and cross it
over to the opposite seam and pin. This creates the twist. Put your hand inside and pull out all the fabric so right sides are together again. Match your seams and pin and pin in between each center.  Start sewing, back stitch, and leave a 2 to 3 inch hole, back stitch.  Turn right side out and wow... You have a scarf.  Now hand stitch the hole closed ! This takes 7 minutes !!! So fun and easy!!
This is a great beginning project for sewing with MInky!
