Weekend Sewing

Friday night was all about looking for the table under all the discarded fabric, half finished projects, magazines and other inspiration which had collected there.

No before shots, I was too busy getting into action to take photo's, this one shows where I was up to on Saturday morning.

I managed to finish the clean up before I headed out to the library for Saturday knitting group - where I did some crochet.

This weekend's main project was to get this quilt put together. I had already completed the top and backing last month. I had even prepared the binding, no excuses why this little quilt could not be completed. Oh, and Saturday's wet weather was so conducive of inside activity.

Basting was completed in the afternoon, sure I like the old fashioned big stitch method.

Snacks and coffee essential for consistent progress.

The evening was spent with Nomee hard at work quilting simple straight lines in the ditch on the horizontal and diagonally across the squares.

Completed on Sunday morning after a long rest.

Trimmed and bound after lunch. The binding is machine sewn both sides.

Just waiting for a label.

Multicoloured spots with burgundy surrounds happy little project for taking along.

After last weeks little cross stitch project I decided to start another one, a perfect project for evenings in.

Hope your weekend was spent in a happy dry place.

You rebel – crocheting at a knitting group!

Congratulations on the quilt finish. I haven’t had a finish in so long I’ve forgotten what that feels like.

You had a crazy crafting weekend and achieved a ton of stuff. Go you!

You have been busy! How big was this little quilt? It is still quite an accomplishment to get it done in one (or two) days!
