This has been a busy week for me, but I was able to get some sewing things done.
I hand stitched all 420 inches of binding onto the Quilt of Many Colors .
This is the best photo I could get of the pieced backing.
This picture shows a little more of the frugal red gingham binding mentioned in my previous post. I had quite a bit left over, too.
It was too cold to go outside today and I didn’t have an assistant, so here’s the completed quilt on a queen sized bed. I hope to get a better photo with my daughter when she visits and takes the quilt home with her in April.
I started a new cross stitch project, something I didn’t think I would ever do again. But this little primitive pattern makes me think of my Mama, who used to sing this little song to us.
This is a small project that shouldn’t take too long to complete. The picture of my beginning project shows approximately two hours of stitching. Does anybody else remember this little Christmas song?
Check out my new bluebird couple. I received the bluebird box for Christmas from our daughter and am excited that we already have a family moving in!
One more thing: I read this book last week. It was a great unraveling of several families, who were all connected somehow, through a Singer Sewing Factory a long time ago. A really good read if you haven’t read it before.
