Good morning Monday

Well I am really excited I am sewing the binding on "Tea and Cakes" this morning. I have hand quilted it within an inch of it's life putting the last quilting stitches in at 11pm last night. I'm off to yoga shortly. I hope I don't fall asleep in relaxation. It will be so nice to stretch out after being hunched over the hoop. I'm looking forward to stitching the binding down. I love that bit. My friends think I am crazy but I love sitting quietly and observing the quilting as I stitch. Crazy as it sounds it gives me a great deal of pleasure and ain't that what life's about. Finding your own JOY. Have a great Monday. Blessings Michelle xxx


  1. I love what I can see of the fabrics. Hope we get a better look when it's done. I admire your patience with hand quilting- I have only ever hand quilted one item, my grandaughter's cot quilt almost 14 years ago.

  2. Fantastic start to the week - A Finish Yay.
    I am one of the odd ones who also enjoys stitching the binding down - ok so it is all about the sense of accomplishment in completing the project.

  3. Beautiful Michelle, well done, you got that finished so quickly. Can't wait to see it. Maybe Wednesday?

  4. Looks beautiful... love the colours I also did lots of quilting - but had to stop when I ran out of thread!!! Groan..... I also love that peaceful time at the end sewing the binding down.....

  5. Hey Michelle, sewing on the binding is what I hate, but it shouldn't be, because it's almost finished!! Hope to see it when it is done, well done you!!!
    Happy stitching, Michelle
