On Sunday

Today we are holding an open house. Needless to say, the house is clean which leaves me some stitching time. Yeah!

I will be working on these projects ... while waiting for visitors or between the visitors.

I have prepared some pieces for Rose Dream to do.  (Darn! I shouldn't have put the ironing board away so quickly. ) I also have marked some hexies but they are not for the Century quilt.

Like many of you, I too put labels on my quilts.  They usually are hexies flowers labels.  I use to do different labels for each quilt and one day I decided to make the same labels on every quilts.  Why that's boring you say.  Yes, maybe but it will be easier, in 50 years or so, to locate my quilts. They are the ones with the hexies flowers!  Smart?  I don't know about that but I know that it is FUN!!  I don't know why I chose hexies flowers but I like it a lot.  Each "petal" offers a lot of space to write the information of the quilt, date, name and so on. Sometimes, I have a LOT of fun decorating the flower. Hehee!

And for Rose Dream I think I finally have a plan, a layout for this quilt. I've always said it would be small but it is getting bigger than first planned so ... plan B is forming and it is looking good, if I might add.

So, yes, this will be a lovely Slow Sunday Stitching with Kathy.   Part of my favorite things to do now on Sundays  is to browse all the links on Kathy's blog and see what everyone else is working on. I so enjoy that.  I hope you will join us.

You might also want to hop to see  Marcia's from Crafty Sewing and Quilt for May for Me giveaway.  It is such a lovely giveaway just for answering a simple question.

Thanks Kathy and Marcia for making my Sunday so much fun.  Hope you all find some time to stitch a bit too.

For those of you who love English paper piecing, check out what they are working on at Quilting Readers Garden.  Some wonderful quilts on that blog too.

Until next time ... SM :^) LE ... because there is no point in keeping it for yourself.


  1. What a sweet way to label your quilts Lovely and personal.

  2. love the rose blocks... will be so effective.. I think Hexi flowers is a great idea ... hope the open house went off well...

  3. I like your idea for using the same type labels. It's kind of like a personal logo.

  4. What an awesome way to do labels!

  5. I love your label idea. I just happen to have a couple of hex quilts and I might borrow your idea for the labels. Thank you!
