Once it is quilted (next problem!) I think it'll be hard to notice - or at least, that's the idea! Now I need to buy some backing and get on with the quilting. Meanwhile, I'll just show some little things which have pleased me recently.
Here are some name labels which I bought from an internet company which will let you choose your wording, font, motif, background colour, embroidery colour and make them in various sizes. You design them yourself online, and then have a chance to view any permutations before you buy. I'm looking forward to completing something so I can use one!
At a local gift shop I came across these labels. I think it's supposed to be parcel tie, but I will use them to go on items for presents. I particularly like the way they look as if I had spent hours cross stitching them. As if I have time for that!
