Time for the Binding.

Hooray! Yipee and Woo Hoo! I have been under the gun to finish a project of late and I really scared myself this time.....you know bite off a big bit and then chew like crazy. Needless to say my jaws are very sore. I didn't think I would get it done but I did! I shall tell you about this quilt at a later date but I am a little excited about it......you know how exciteable I can get! Anyway all the hand quilting is done and I have sewn the binding on today and tonight I can relax and hand stitch the binding down. aaaaahhhhhh....
Well guess who else is now in the hoop????? Yep the 'bossy mouse'. Quite pleased about it she is too as she was very put out at being put to one side for "THAT OTHER" quilt. So yes "A Christmas Tail" is finally getting quilted. It shouldn't take long as it is really a large wall hanging.
I am now looking forward to getting back to my Mum's quilt and also my little Christmas Swap stitchings....I do so want to be a good little "Elf" but life seems to be getting in my way lately. Still as they say 'it's all good'.
Well time for a cuppa and to consider what Domestic Goddess miracle I can produce for dinner.
Enjoy your evening,
Blessings Michelle xxx

  8. I always feel triumphant when I get to the hand stitching the binding part. It means a quilt is almost done and that's a great feeling.

    What a cute little mouse!

  12. I enjoy hand binding- it is a peaceful and relatively mindless task that can be done while chatting, watching TV or sitting in the sun :). Your bossy little Christmas mouse looks intriguing, shall be waiting to see her (?) complete.
