Tuesday Sewing

Even though it was hot yesterday i wanted to get some sewing done as i needed to make binding for my big scrappy quilt that was recently quilted. It took a while to cut & sew all the strips together. Sewing the binding onto the quilt will have to wait for cooler weather.
I measured it & there is about 8-1/2 metres of binding here. From memory the quilt is about 100" by 100".

Then i cut the binding for my doll quilt as it's only small that twas a quick job. :)

By then it was to hot to sit at the machine so off to the lounge i went. Fan on & Knightfall on Netflix to hand sew the binding down. Sure wish sewing the binding onto the big quilt goes as quick as it did sewing the binding onto the doll quilt which measures 12" square.

That done i finished embroidery this block from part 2 of Gail Pan's Christmas BOM

Gail always gives us a project using one of the stitcheries. This month is a little table topper. I started 1 of the 4 pieces needed.

Don't think there will be any sewing today as it is supposed to be 40 degrees here. Might be a day for reading under the air conditioner in my bedroom. :)

Happy Stitching,
