After posting off the quilt this morning I had a mammoth tidy up session, I unearthed a few full coin strip sets and had a
Bag them up up or use them up, Use them up as bags.
I dived into the box of left over batting and spent a little while zigzagging strips and squares together. I now have an almost empty box. COOL.
My attention then went to the box of biggish bits of fabric and with a bit of luck I found 4 pieces.
Then it was time to press, stitch, press and cut and I had the makings of 4 bags.
Baste, mark a design and quilt, I now have 4 bags well on the way.
Simple quilting, it's all about the colours for me.
Miles of binding on the way, chain stitching for speed and economy. The price of decent thread is astronomical.
I am taking W to the hospital early in the morning, Very Early, he has to be there by 7:30 am!!
I will be coming home, rather then stay there, as it is likely that he will be in overnight and he is scheduled to be the last down to theatre.
I hope to get the bags finished, or as near to it as possible. There is another quilt to layer and baste, I made the back this afternoon.
It has been wonderful weather for ducks and crafters lately. I did miss knit and natter today, I have so much driving to do this week that I wanted a restful day today. mmmmm
I am way behind in responding to comments, I have been asked for a glove pattern, but I can not remember the last time that I knitted any.
I need to make time to catch up and read through my blog list, it is all to easy for me to lose track of the passing of time.
In fact, looking at the time, I think I will make a start now.
