Three things to be happy about:
(1) decorating for Christmas
(2) putting crunchy peanut butter on vanilla ice cream
(3) unexpected rewards
The quilt police are after me, help!!!
And it's all because I decided to put the label on the FRONT of these kiddie quilts instead of the back, where they belong!
I tried to convince them - I didn't break any long standing rule, I just broke out of the box and possibly started a new trend because I didn't want to hand-sew those labels!
Somebody please vouch for me, lest they take me away!!
I wanted to create nice labels in Word but the printer was in a grouchy mood, so I figured I'd just write them out.
I simply typed the pertinent info in Word - name of quilt, for whom, by whom, date - printed it out on paper, and inked it onto the fabric.
My first impulse was to color-match the label to the border fabric, but red happened to be the first one I did and I just didn't like the way it looked.
So I used plain ole muslin and machine stitched them down - somebody tell that to the cops, please!
Somehow I can't see Jaelyn, on Christmas morning, putting her hands on her 5-year-old hips - such as they are - popping her neck and going "OH NO SHE DI-ENT!!"
Jaelyn?? Well, maybe...
In any case, these puppies are ready to mail, they should have been sent out last week!
The placement of a label isn't worth fitzing over, right?
Tell it to the cops!
Sew forth and sew on til later!
