Thanks!

Wow, thank you all so much for all your opinions on which quilt you like best. I finally decided to go with the orange and yellow zig zag quilt. It was a tough decision since they are all my favorites. But in the end it got a lot of votes and a lot of people have it as a favorite on flicker. It is for a contest that is going on at the Make Baby Stuff website. Go here to see all the entries and vote for your favorite. If you want to give a comment or rating on my quilt, it can be found here. I'd really appreciate it, but I won't blame you if you choose to comment on other quilts since there are so many good ones. I'm seriously thankful I am not a judge, that would be a hard job.

I am so excited to show you what I did with the cupcake that I embroidered. I just figured it would be a practice but it was too cute not to use. So... I made it into a label for the Dutch Pinwheel Quilt. I used an embroidery machine that was donated to the quilting guild (my mom, and two aunts) so I volunteered to be the first to use it. It works great and I love all the fun stuff you can do with it. So on craft night last week, my sister taught me how to sew on a label....by hand! Now I can do all my binding by hand and hopefully it will look a lot better. But isn't this tag the cutest thing ever!?
Over the weekend I got a whole load of baby bibs and burp cloths done. Mostly to stock up for all the ladies that are pregnant, but one in particular was for my neighbor who just had a baby. They named her Grace. Awe! So I used the aforementioned embroidery machine and stitched her name on the bib. I also did a tulip stitch on the green one that has, coincidentally, tulips on it. These are just a few of what I made. I ran out of light to take pictures. But I think I should have enough to keep me satisfied for a while.

Anna loves the bib you made for her. I put it on her yesterday and she just kept saying "pretty" and "nice." Keep up the good work.
