I had a 2 night marathon binding sewing session, whilst battling with the cats as to who was in control of the quilt, the thread and the needle, but I got Ginger's rocket quilt finished. This morning, at the crack of dawn, I washed and dried it, and it's now on his bed. Waiting for him to come home from nursery. And also because his friends, Elizabeth and Phoebe, are coming round later, with their mum (who happens to be my friend) and I want to show off. Heck, at least I'm honest. Cue manic bedroom tidying.
I think the wall above his bed looks bare though. I can't decide what to put there. Maybe 3 pictures. If anyone knows of any I should get, please let me know. Dinosaurs, rockets, animals, transport, spiderman (NO - NO, not spiderman, that was the ginger one talking). Maybe alphabet prints. Hmmm.....
And so we move on to WIP number 2. A lap quilt that has sat around for too long waiting to be finished up. I finally got the back pieced, and now I've basted it. Hubs is away tomorrow, so I can try and ban myself from the computer and get it quilted. Maybe if I do the binding today I'll be more inclined to finish it.
I love these fabrics, by Sandy Klop. This quilt is possibly going to be for a friend, when she has her baby. Possibly. But I love it so much I don't know if I can bear to part with it. That's just selfish, isn't it? I must try hard to give it away. I must.
Yesterday I had a lovely cuppa and sausage sandwich with Brioni. We spent a good 3 hours chinwagging and supping tea. Lovely. Hopefully she will want to do it again sooooooon? Oh, and Brioni - after our chat about Heather Bailey - I bought a load. Thanks for that ;)
