labeling, good or bad?

When labeling people, probably bad.  Unless the label is AWESOME!  What about projects?  Do you label yours?

I didn't start labeling things until I started selling them.  And now I like to put labels on everything I make.  But I don't like them to be totally obvious.  So on my bags, I used Penny's tutorial to make the labels and then I attach them on the inside pocket.  I never get a good picture once they've been sewn up, so I thought I'd show you these on some WIPs.

Someone told me A friend's facebook status said the other day it was important to put seed out for the birds.  With all this snow covering the ground, it's harder for them to find the food they need.  So I threw some of my seed out on the back deck yesterday (I can't get to my feeder) and I successfully lured some birds out there.

The cardinals are a little elusive and don't like seeing me behind the window, but I caught this one in the tree.  I'm in love.

Not a bad view from my sewing table.

You'll have to excuse the blog - I'm in the middle of making a few layout changes, but I'm stuck on something.  I'll have it fixed soon.  I hope!

Always label quilts, sometimes label table quilts. On my quilts, I like them quilted in. Your tags are cute, I have never sold anything that I have made, so no cute tags for me!!!
Blessings,

I always label, even blocks I send to other quilters, right on the seam line. This way there is a bit of you somewhere out there for history.

Love the picture of the Cardinal. It just pops against the gray.

I love the bird pictures, too. I got a great picture of a huge Woodpecker in my backyard when I lived there in Aquia - you know the kind with the red head just like Woody Woodpecker!

I always name, date, and sign my work, and write who it's for or if it's made for a special occation. I don't always make a label; if possible I write with a fabric marker right on the backing.

Your birdie pictures made me smile!

We have Cardinals everywhere and they will perch above me when I'm in the garden waiting because they know when I'm done, there's a wormy meal for them!

I need to figure out labels. Do you use the color fast sheets and your home printer? Tutorial? (I even looked at the link and I still don't know if I get it.)

I miss seeing cardinals. Great catch. :)
