    I finally finished a quilt for the battered women's shelter. Does anyone have an idea as to what i could put on the label?

    I also finished a table runner that went to my sister-in-law as a birthday gift.

    Gotta say I love the table runner .. very creative use of charms!

    And great job on the quilt!

    As for your label question, I don't know how detailed you want to get. Perhaps your name, city/state, date presented to the shelter and then something like "To comfort and give you warmth and strength as you move forward"?

    Just a thought....

    Great job on both of them!

    As for the label, how about 'never stop believing'.

    my daughter is a school teacher and at Christmas time they all get together for a little party and minor gift exchanges. as she never has much money to spare, i offered to make her something simple like a pot holder or hot pad to give to each one. one of her teacher friends has breast cancer and undergoing treatments so the big word for all of them is HOPE. so therefore she wants me to make her hot pads in pale pink fabric with hot pink thread with just the magic word: HOPE on them, she only wants 20 of them. so maybe i'll come up with some clever way to do them. any suggestions? here's a pic of a candle mat i made, maybe couple circles on a hot pad with the word encircled in there somewhere.

    a Christmas candle mat.
