take notes tip

I work on multiple projects at the same time. To make it easy to move from one to another, I keep an in-process notebook that has a page for each project. Each time I switch projects I note needle size, tension setting, thread, presser foot, and the stitch length I was using, as well as what step of the project I was on.
