With two weeks off from work, you’d think I would be further ahead right now on my crafty projects. But the first week was all birthday celebrations (mine) as well as Xmas… busy busy busy!
I did decide to kick off the New Year in style, by finishing up projects from the old year. It seems like a good tone to set for a productive year.
Remember this top?
From last spring?
It’s been basted and ready to be quilted for ages, so today, I did just that!
Even though NYE was surprisingly warm, we woke up to snow today. I let the kids be lazy, and I sewed away. I got the quilting done, and moved on to binding.
I had that fabulous striped fabric stashed away for this quilt, and I LOVE how it looks with both the front and back. (The quilt was small enough for me to get away with a non-pieced back, my favorite lazy kind…)
With Disc 2 of the final season of Dexter ( hooray for Netflix…), I whiled away a pleasant morning.
Isn’t that backing fabric fun? (please please, look at the fabric and not my lousy quilting stitches…)
I’m hoping to have the binding hand sewn down before I head back to work next week, and then to mail this off the the baby it was intended for, before he becomes a full fledged toddler…
Here’s hoping you all have crafty new years!
