to label or not to label.

17 July 2009

to label or not to label.
that is the question.

do yall label your blog posts???
i see alot of blogs that do, and alot that don't.

i've been pondering labeling for a while now.
i just can't decide if i should continue not labeling...
or start labeling.

note to add: i'm not asking about if i should title my post.
i will always have post titles.
i'm talking about the keywords you add to the bottom of your post...labels.

so talk to me.
let me know why i should be labeling.
or let me know why not labeling is okay.
either way...please give your opinion.

and for those inquiring minds...

so i guess now is the time to confess my love of antebellum homes.
i absolutely love them!!!
i think it's the southern belle in me.

i just love how rich with history these home are.
i had the best time listening to my granddaddy tell me stories.
he's quite the charlestonian history buff.

aren't these homes just gorgeous???
my favorite is the big yellow one of the corner.
i want one just like it.

my first quilt.

11 July 2009

so because i adore camille, i'll shame humor myself for a brief moment.
here is my contribution for the parade of quilts...

i know it's not a quilt...but here's the 1st blanket i ever made.
i made this at the ripe ol' age of 16.
i credit this blanket for the fabric loving person i am today.
{you can read more about this blanket HERE.}

and this...*sigh* the 1st quilt i ever made.
i made this at the ripe ol' age of 21.
well actually this quilt was started in 2004 and it still needs binding.
me & this quilt have a strong love/hate relationship.
{you can read more about this quilt HERE.}

and here is my most recent quilt.
so recent that it debuted on the moda bake shop yesterday!!!
{direct link HERE.}

i ♥ this quilt. ALOT.
so much so that i don't even want to put it away until christmas.

it's fun to see a mini evolution of my quilts.
{& to think of the ones that were created in between these three.}

so the big million dollar question is this:
what have i learned since the very beginning???

#1 the rotary cutter is a girl's best friend.
#2 iffy fabric when bought, will still be iffy when it's in your finished quilt.
and #3...
never ever forget that you set your dr. pepper next to where you are quilting.
bad ju ju. promise.
