4.Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's stash, but you may try to weasel your way into their last will and testament through kindness.

5.Thou shall not work so much on your Grandmother's Flower Garden that you neglect the one outside.There is a reason why you are developing quilter's butt!

6.Thou shalt remember to bestow upon your dog much attention or else she will leave you a poopy present under your sewing machine while you are out running errands!

7.Thou shall not feel obligated to wash any dishes while you are developing a new technique. Or cook stuff.

8. Thou shall not neglect the lint under the bobbin
