#iliketobinditbindit

This afternoon we settled down with a few of the Christmas Sky+ leftovers, including Madagascar 2, and I got on with binding my #scrappytripalong...


I am now over halfway round, about 5 out of 8 yards sewn; I was thinking I might get it finished this evening, but maybe I need to give my eyes and fingers a rest and have something to look forward to tomorrow evening.  Still undecided.

It has snowed and thawed at the same rate all day, so we are no worse/better off than we were yesterday; school have already texted saying that they hope to be open tomorrow, so saving that binding may well be a good idea; another day of kids, or a day at work, it's a toss up which I would prefer less!

  2. Save the rest for tomorrow, hope the snow goes away and the kids get to school, so you can get to work :) One of the main reasons I don't want snow is that I can't take time off sewing to mind the kids ha ha, seriously though, you wouldn't mind during the holidays, but they're only back in.

  5. I don't have to leave the house, which is just as well as everything is under quite a layer of snow here. Looking forward to seeing your scrappy TATW finished.

  8. Well I still have to trudge to work, but there were blocks I was hoping to work on instead. Doubt there's going to be a huge downfall of snow in the next few hours though, we haven't had any yet!

    The binding is the best part. :-)

  15. The binding is fabulous. I am not sure I've ever used pink binding so maybe I need to put that on my bucket list!

  17. It's perfect binding weather here in Tennessee, and I'm feverishly working on having something to bind! A belated congratulations on the first annual "blog comment award". :-) I must say, as a non-blogger, that you have given me the MOST encouragement simply via your replies to my comments. Keep up the good work!

  18. I hope you spent the day stitching binding rather than at work...any chance school was open but work wasn't?!
