I love stripes and flowers together so I used a Nicey Jane stripe to bind the finished quilt.
It is my firm belief that patchwork and quilting is an extreme sport as I am forever injuring myself for 'my art'. Thankfully I noticed the gaping flap of skin on my thumb before it bled on the fabric!!! It has somewhat hampered my sewing today though :( Poor me, do you hear the violin playing?
Whilst letting the cut heal I have been tackling a rather important project that I really can't put off any longer for fear of alienating my teenage daughter. Eeek! Her birthday is Sunday and I'm hoping my online purchases will be here in time or else I shall be in the dog house!
