    Yea, that is what I make quilts with character! I need to remember that! I will have to post a pic so everyone can see the heart on the quilt. Along with my poem tag. I really do tend to create my own rules!

    That reminds me of an 8 paneled skirt that I embroidered for a 9th grade home ec project. On the day of the fashion show, we were putting the skirt in the trunk of the car and the trunk wouldn't shut. I tried to shut it, but alas, it wouldn't. I tried harder. Then, I saw that the skirt was caught in the latch. Oh, I was heartbroken! There was a big grease spot right in the place where the trunk latch was.

    My mom took it--told us to go on to school (about an hour away) and she would work on it. She did. She got most of the spot out and then did something over that one spot--I think she added embroidery. Because the panels were so fully embroidered, including a blanket stitch around each panel, no one ever noticed a single thing.

    But, great idea! Thanks for sharing.

    I copied your poem yesterday but apparently forgot to save it and I'd hate to tell you how much time I spent looking for this again last night -- I scanned all the topics for probably 90 minutes -- was so glad I found it again this morning -- thanks so much -- it is appropriate for many of my pieces!

    Ok, here is the post I promised. Pictures dont' do it justice I think. A couple of pics of my little fopa's, it really turned out nice. The backing to show my fopa's (heart & butterfly cover up). Last is how I wrapped it with left over binding that I tore. Added the tag and I love it!
