The little quilt is all quilted and trimmed, all that is left is the binding and the tag. I needed to take a couple of days off from the sewing closet because our new store manager got my back up
riding horse
...and I do mean seriously... a swirling column of righteous rage, burning hotter than the sun. angry

But now I've calmed down (and my sword still drips with the blood of my enemy she apologized too little, too late ) and I'm ready to get going again.

I don't remember - Helen, did you provide a pattern/template for the tag? Knowing me, I'll make it more complicated than it needs to be (only because that's What I Do), but I'm looking at 5 days off before the holiday Knuppel so I expect I can finish and mail, even if I do go off the deep end with the tag.
geek

In other news, I apparently forgot to lock the pickup when I was at rehearsal on Monday. An opportunistic but (comparatively) non-malevolent thief decided to rummage through the truck and steal a couple of things. Nothing major at all, and they did no damage. BUT the little quilt was on the passenger seat because I'd taken it to my coffee group for show & tell. Fortunately the rummager left it alone.

THAT woulda really stunk. whew

Gee Tracy, sorry about both incidents...too bad the rummager didn't run off with the manager. Did you ring her chimes? (sorry, couldn't resist Twisted Evil )

There is no template for the tag. She just included info on how she did hers. So you are free to be as complicated creative as you like.

lmao lmao Hahahahha my first thought for FB and the new manager was "Hope she gonged her bell" lmao lmao lmao lmao

FB so sorry for the stress at work, who needs that? hug08 Sorry the car was rifled through, would have been quite the compliment if they stole your mini quilt but glad they didnt. No sorry I didnt put directions for the tag, well no I did explain what I did so I guess that counts right? I fused two pieces of fabric together, trimmed to size, zig zagged around the edges and cut a little hole in one corner to thread a ribbon through. I used plain on the back and wrote it out like a gift tag with To and From and a xmas message.

Wow Helen, that's great. Mine is done but mine do not have to swim the ocean to get where they are going so haven't mailed yet. Might do it next week. Then they can use them a bit before Christmas! :santa1:

Oh I love it when there are goodies in the mail.

Ohmygoodness. I can't believe it. I received my adorable Christmas present LAST WEEK and didn't even acknowledge it!


It's been safely tucked away in my vehicle, because I've been showing it off at meetings and gatherings throughout the week.

Thank you, Louanne, for my special gift...


And my special, special extra goodie! Hug
