Mission accomplished!

LabelsYesterday was my favorite kind of day. Other than the obligatory walk (a whole three buildings away) to get the required celebratory Blizzard (LOL! Of course, it goes without saying that finding out that both “Windblown” and “Embrace 1” were accepted into the Houston show definitely added to it being a favorite kind of day :)), I was able to stay at home, in the house, the whole day! That’s a pretty big deal for hermit-type personalities. But even more importantly, it meant I was finally able to put on both labels and both sleeves! After two weeks of putting that task on my “to-do” list and two weeks of being thwarted at every turn, it feels good to finally have it done.

SleevesBecause I was so determined to finish my task, I did not do tutorials on how to make a label or how to make a sleeve. No distractions this time. That will all have to wait. Besides, there are plenty of other places that give those instructions.

As I took pictures, I was thinking about how quilters love to see the back of quilts. Some hardly glance at the front first! So, I thought I’d include these two pictures of “Windblown”.

The backing fabric on Windblown is a Caryl Bryer Fallert print called Glacier Park Splash. The backing on Embrace 1 is a fun batik.
