Partying with Chookyblue

I'm a bit late with my post but i did join in with Chookyblue to celebrate the Chookshed's birthday.

Friday night i did some embroidery. The plain stitching was finished off on this block ready for the satin stitch.

Now that number 3 is nearly finished i hope i can get block 4 done before 5 arrives.

Saturday i started binding this quilt with a little help from my furry friend
Then that evening as i was handsewing the binding down she though it would make a good bed again
 I had only about 1/4 of the binding left before i had to go to bed. Sunday saw me out of action for the day but i finished the binding Sunday evening.
The finished quilt ready to be gifted to my daughter. Beautiful quilting done by the quilting fairy Fiona.

Happy Stitching,
