I love my Rubber Stamps

Our Cotton Mill Quilt Guild's Silent Auction and Christmas Luncheon is on Monday.  

I made several small items for the auction and one of them is this little stitching kit.  "S" is for Snowflakes. It's actually one block of the Snowmen A-Zzz pattern by Crabapple Hill designs. 

Besides the traced pattern on fabric, the kit has finishing fabric, embroidery needles, red floss, written instructions on how to finish the wall hanging with a checkerboard border and finally, a little see-through zippered tote to carry it all in.    I know if somebody bought it as a gift for me, I would love it.   I hope it brings in a good price.    

Remember I told you a few weeks ago about getting rubber stamps made so I could make small fabric labels for the little projects I make.  Well, I had not thought of it before, but this week I had fun using the stamps in a traditional way.   I cut out paper circles and using them to stamp a tag to put on the auction items.  I like it and it finishes off the crafty items really nice.
