The Decision Has Been Made

Thank you to everyone that voted in my poll and sent me an email or left a comment.  I had another option and I was concerned about using it. I have a custom stamper that I had made with Mama Spark's Quilts on it.  I decided to try using that on this blanket.  I just didn't have it in me to take the binding apart and chance that it would come apart after repeated washings.

I used the stamp and an ink pad with ink that, when heat set, becomes permanent. So what do you think of my solution? I'm really happy with it!

Then, after the gym yesterday, I stopped at the thrift shop and found a couple of goodies. I love the vintage Napco wear from Japan and found this wee treasure.

She is only about 2" tall and so adorable!

Of course I cruised the vintage sheet section too and lookie what I found there

Love this! I don't often find ones like this so I was super excited to find this one. I recently did a vintage sheet swap and can't wait to get my sheet FQs back in the mail. I did a couple of other swaps also and need to take some photos to show you that as well.

Time to go to Zumba! Then cleaning and finishing a top for a friend's mom are on the list of things to do today. Of course the MSU game, but that's not until tonight. What are your weekend plans? ~XOP~

I hadn't thought about the opening and resewing of binding seams + repeated washings... and love the stamp thing! Perfect solution! I'm gonna have to give some thought to getting me a personalized stamp like that!

Love your thrift shop finds... that is a beautiful sheet... such love colors!

The stamp idea is great! No one can remove it either. That has always bothered me about labels.
