I had been wanting to make this "girl on a swing" mini quilt for some time so when I had left overs from a quilt I'm making as a birthday gift, I knew it was time. Although I'm not sure red was the best choice since there are red apples sewn along the bottom of the tree and some in the tree. But you can't see this because I used red scraps! ooops. I like it though and now I have this out of the way I can move on to other things I feel the need to make but really don't need them.
I have a ton of old labels from starting about 10 years back. I just couldn't ever decide what I wanted so I have some for when I used to make cat houses and other cat things, one for things made for the home, 2 for costumes, 3 for babies/kids and some simple ones with just my name. I was thinking of what I could do with them and decided after I had made this mini quilt that I would sew these old labels in to things like this. When I don't want to waste one of my new labels (the mushrooms) but I want it to have a label to show I made it. I don't want my girls to be looking at my stuff some day when I'm gone and wondering if I made it or someone else did. If I was giving it away it would have a new label but this is going on the wall and no one will see the back unless they look. I'm going to take down my mini quilt clothes line and sew old labels on all of them! How exciting! Just kidding, I have a life:)
I just finished reading The Winter's Sea. And LOVED it. LOVVVVVED it. It's about Scotland and Jacobite's and love. I'm now ready to start the new Sookie book!!!
