Fun in my fabric world....

Unbelievable!

Those who know me are aware of my binding phobia...I can stich it on post quilting but it can literally take me years to handstitch it down! Shameful!
So to surprise everyone (especially myself) I have nearly finished stitching the binding on DS's funky robot quilt. It feels good & it really wasn't hard once I got started. Doesn't it look nice?

My dear mother is home 7 weeks after her fall...still some issues but at least she is more mobile. After visiting her the other day I stopped at the lovely Quilt-Essentials in Newcastle. Jenny is always a delight & her shop is lovely. This is what I found...

I am in love with chocolate at the moment!

Hope your week has been a happy one...
