Sewing to my hearts content ; )

Soooo close to being done with my secret Lucy Goosey quilt.  I am sewing on the binding for the LAST side as we speak.  I stayed up pretty late last night working on this task because I would like to have it done for Amy's Creative Side challenge *smile* as well.  I would love to be entered into the drawing for some Fandango fabric--what beautiful threads!

I have not bought those hair clips that they sell at Joann's for a ridiculous price.  Therefore, I have come to the conclusion that bobby pins work wonderfully!!

Thought it would be really sweet if I did up an embroidered quilt label again too as I did for my dad's flag quilt. 

bible verse from 1Thess. 5:11
I added some flowers to compliment some of the flower prints on the quilt top.  By doing so, I picked up the lazy daisy stitch quite easily after doing a couple of petals.  Then I added the stem stitch into the mix.  Really loving the way it turned out.  L.O.V.E. embroidery Period: )  Now to attach it to the back of my quilt and stand back to admire my work *blush.*  My heart is filled for the day!  What a great way to spend a Sunday.

Enjoy the day,

Fun projects! Can't wait to see more of the secret quilt. Love your inventiveness in using bobby pins instead of binding clips. I love the look of the embroidered quilt label too - so personal and sweet!

Sara,
Your label is so beautiful. Making labels is something I need to work on. You give me inspiration!
