Oh-oh. I just went back to page 1 and found that I had read the 'rules' wrong. Deb says

... I am only giving you fair warning.. we have until the end of August to get them to your "secret mini pal"

Here I was thinking that I just had to MAIL it by the end of August. Oy. I've only the binding and label to do, so I'd better get a move on!!

I still have the label to put on... for some reason lacking enthusiasm to do it. I don't like making labels. I would rather just sign the back of it.

oh what a beautiful watercolor idea love the heart!!

I too.. am still procrastinating about the labels.. I too would rather just sign the back.. I too.. don't like making labels.. but because the recipient is special.. I think that they would appreciate it..

Any ideas on how or what to do to make a label.. I love that hummer lou found a poem I think that is a great idea..
anyone else got ideas for us label maker procrastinators!!

I visit the quote sites. You can search for 'creativity quotes' (without the '), 'friendship quotes', etc. There are three or four quote sites that I re-visit; they come in handy for labels, smarty remarks in emails lmao and other times when I need to sound smarter than I really am.

:angelic:

Oh! And then I type out the quote in a document and play with sizes and fonts until it's the right size for my label. I print it, tape it to the storm door on the SW side of the house and trace the lettering onto my label fabric, using a fine-point Sharpie.

I iron the soup outta the Sharpie (though it's permanent on its own) and then sew the label to the quilt.

Here's a closeup of the label on the swap quilt I just mailed (the mysterious view):


You can see that the label itself was made into a little pocket, where I included a strip of the backing fabric for my swap-ee to use to make a hanger, if she wishes.

Sometimes I scare even myself.
