Bindaphobia

I hate binding quilts...happily machine stitch it on, but when it comes to hand stitching it over I am a dreadful procrastinator. They can sit there for months, even longer, all the time being used & going fuzzy! Shameful! If I do it straight away I am fine, but once I put it aside it is liable to sit for a looooong time. In the hope of finishing the binding on this monster (waiting for 6 mths), I will name & shame myself into completion. Here it is!


Today I helped a friend cut out a cute quilt out of cowboy fabric. Fun.


Also got these cute headbands from Michelle for my daughter. She is doing some great crochet work. Thanks Michelle, they are perfect!

Wow... it looks gorgeous! Just imagine how much more beautiful it will look when it's got binding on it! There's no better weather than at the moment to be stuck under a quilt sewing the binding on.... get to it!!!!
