"Crazy for Flowers" Label

Thank you EVERYBODY for your sweet "welcome back" comments. It sure makes a girl feel great!
Before I post a long accounting of the wonderful week at the Point Bonita retreat, I wanted to share the quilt label I finished for "Crazy for Flowers". Now the project is well and truly complete.

Here is a detail of the "printing" of my name. I used a very fine silk thread and a teeny needle. Because the printed cotton was so dense, sewing these little chain stitches led to many cries of "Ow!". Next time I will use a bigger "font".

So good to have you back. I've been having Allie withdrawal pangs.
Gorgeous label. I know what you mean about stitching through the printed fabric. Really like the idea of embroidering over a photo.
