Caught Up on Bindings
I can't prep a binding and then put the quilt aside. I have to get it done, no matter what else is sitting on my sewing table. I like doing bindings, and Daisy does, too, because I sit by her and we have bonding time!
I almost screwed up on this one. I decided to use up what yardage I had left in that line for the backing. When I took it out yesterday to piece the binding, I had a real scare. I realized I didn't save any of the border fabric for the binding. Digging further in the bag I got back from the quilter, I saw that she put the trimmings from my borders and backing in there. Whew! I had to do some creative piecing but ended up with just enough.
For once I'm ready for the show and tell at Alex's retreat in November way ahead of schedule. This was last year's project, and completed quilts are the first order of business this year.
I bought a barbeque grill and all the things I'll need to grill yesterday. I was so pleased with myself for remembering to get everything I'd need. Got home and realized I had forgotten to take the steaks out of the freezer. Figured I'd be all ready for today, though. Guess what? It's misty and drizzly outside, although the much cooler temps are nice. I don't think I'm going to let a little water deter me at this point! I'm a woman on a mission!
~ A real feeling of relief over this stash decision thing!
~ Much cooler weather today, sorely needed!
~ Waking up with a smile. That's been a long time coming!
~ My wonderful friends, who are all together again, and only a mouse click away!
