Yep, the holidays have begun, work is over for 6 weeks, and although my 3 little darlings don't exactly make for relaxing times, (we had washed the car by 9am this morning!), I know where I would rather be!
So after the early start, I had time to stitch a skinny bit of single-fold binding onto my sample from Thomas K's knotting class before the conservatory got too hot, and then scored a finish in the garden this afternoon…
I think this little thing, (it finished at 12" square) is rather sweet, and I can really see the appeal of hand quilting a whole-cloth quilt (aark at me!!).
I have also turned my hand-quilting sample from Jen K's class into a cushion, as predicted in my FAL listing; and now I only have to finish the binding on that.
And to aid me in my hand stitching quest and counteract my inability to thread, nay see a needle after 8pm, we have supplemented the useless-for-sewing ambient lighting with a new task light…
I am so chuffed!
So if you need me after dark, I'll be hanging out under my new lamp!
