Well, thankfully I now have four days off. Last week was very long and stressful. I have about 35 schools to visit over the next month, to help out with year end. I spend the whole time feeling sick in case anything goes wrong when you press that 'final close of year' button!!
I had a new table delivered on Wednesday, just in time for a house full, due to arrive later today. So I made this for it
I sat out in the sunshine this morning and put the binding on, so it's all finished just in time
I couldn't find anything in my stash that I wanted to bind it with so when I was doing my mammoth shop at Sainsburys yesterday I had a look at their pillowcases to see if the right colour was there. Sure enough, two lovely duck egg pillowcases at 2.99 for the pair!!! Quickly cut in to binding. (I think I will use the remainder for my stained quilt)
I fmq'd it - successfully too I think!! No issues on the tension etc
I am really pleased with this, even more so because I designed it from scratch sitting on my kitchen floor surrounded by pieces of fabric!
Am hoping to finish off my mug quilt over the weekend and catch up on family time, whilst sewing and drinking the fizzy stuff!!
