New project

Last evening I had to catch up on household stuff that I didn't do because I felt so lousy this past weekend. I did some laundry, cooking, dishes, etc. I did find a bit of time to sew. I started sewing together the pairs of strips.

I also spent my lunch time quilting on the double wedding ring quilt. I am finding just an hour day is leading to some good progress!

Tonight I need to put a label on a baby quilt. The project executive that I have worked with for 15 years, his daughter is having a baby.

I also need to start a new project and get it done quickly. One of the fellows I work with is going thru some medical stuff and so I think he needs a quilt! I will have to dig thru my flannel and see if I have enough fabric to make a quilt. I know I have enough flannel for the backing, but for the front I am not sure. There is always another quilt that needs made isn't there?

I did get a new stamp pad for making quilt labels. My old one was just worn out. My big problem right now is to try and find a replacement stamp for the one I use when I make labels. The stamp says "One who sleeps under a quilt is comforted by love." I have had mine for over 15 years and it is worn down to the point it is hard to get a good impression. I have been looking on ebay, but no luck yet.

I really don't know how you fit in everything you do with a full time job.

There are all kinds of places on line where you can order a custom made stamp. Just send them the saying you want on it and they'll make you one. Unless of course, yours has some fancy borders or decorations. Did you know you can take a picture of it and do a search for similar pictures?

Janice Holton had a good idea. I used to order custom made stamps all the time when I worked. They are not terribly expensive. Bet you'll find something you want though if you search a little farther.
