Quilts for Japan ~ How you can help.

Message from the Japanese Patchwork Quilt Tsushin website: http://www.viq.com/ (Roughly translated by Tanya again)
Comfort Quilts are quilts to ease pain and sadness. In North America, at times of natural disasters or when there is a need in foster facilities, volunteer quilters have had the custom of donating quilts. There are no definite requirements but quilts with warm batting and light stitching are made for both children and adults
Patchwork Tsushin is asking for donations of any quilt (brand new or in nearly new condition after washing) or any quilt that quilters might take on to make especially for this cause. There are no size requirements but quilts either square or rectangular and at least 100 cm. large (approximate 40 inches) would be appreciated. Rather than works of art or quilts for showing, quilts that can and are appropriate for use are necessary. Baby quilts for newborns are especially welcome. Any quilter’s level (beginning and advanced) is appreciated.
Mailing address:  Patchwork Tsushin Co.Ltd

〒113-0033 Tokyo, Bunkyoku, Hongo 5-28-3
Telephone 03-3816-5538
Please pack quilts in plastic for handling and send by delivery service. Please assume sending costs as part of your donation.
There are no deadlines yet as to when the quilts need to be received but we will update on our website as the situation changes.

More info…
Quilters Newsletter has long enjoyed a friendship with Patchwork Tsushin, a leading Japanese quilt magazine. So when Editor in Chief Naomi Ichikawa emailed to say her magazine is collecting comfort quilts for those impacted by the recent earthquake in Japan, we wanted to join the effort. QN will gather quilts from U.S. quiltmakers then forward them to Naomi and her staff, who will deliver them to those in need. (If you live outside the United States, email me as indicated below, and I will provide information on how you can send quilts directly to Naomi.)
Here’s how you can be part of this important worldwide response:
• Send quilts of any size from baby to adult to:
Dana Jones
Quilters Newsletter
741 Corporate Circle, Suite A
Golden, CO 80401
• Mark your box: “Quilts for Japan.”
• Send quilts as soon as possible and no later than April 30, 2011.
• Enclose your name, address, phone number, and email address with the quilts.

While blog hopping recently, I came across this fantastic tip listed on Be Our Best.  Jill has compiled her Top 10 Blogging Tips in one place to help others out there in blogland.  Most of them I had heard of before.  But she had one on her list that I have only seen a couple times in practice, and have not heard a how-to do it before.Number 6: Add a clickable signature to your comments.If you add the following text to the bottom of the comments you leave for other bloggers, whatever text you insert for “Your Text Here” will be clickable.  You have to switch out “{“ and “}” with “<” and “>” then it will work.  Remember to also change the “Your Blog Address” part, LOL! {a href=http://www.YourBlogAddress.com/ }YOUR TEXT HERE {/a}Bonus Tip ~ I use Notepad to store all the html codes I use on a regular basis {the direct link code for my signature image, color codes, etc.}.  I added the above code to my Notepad page, edited it with my information, and saved it.  Now all I have to do …

Planner Tabs and Dashboard

Post-it's tabs are super easy to add and move if you need to change where there are placed. I find that after placing them, I may find it easier to see them further over or on the other side of the page. 


Seeing so many different ways to use tabs on the top, sides, and bottoms of their planner has given me ideas. And when you find one way doesn't work great, switch the location until you do find the perfect location for the way you use them. 

After this layout, I moved stuff around....

Now the tabs for project lists, H's B-day, next Christmas are on the bottom of the pages. Nothing blocks the,  since the above layout I also switched the monthly layouts to behind the DISFish weekly pages I use.  The teal/blue month tabs are on the first page of the DISFish which includes that month's information.  The monthly tabs on the side are for the two-page monthly sprees by Daytimer that came with this binder. Helps to see the month laid out in that way when on the phone making appo…
