Summer

I find it hard to believe that it's June.  I love summer!  My life is less stressful since the kids are on vacation.  (We still have their sports and other activities to keep up with, but I don't have to deal with school activities and homework.)  I love the warm weather and long nights.  (I find it easier to stay up late and still get up early.)  My body seems to function better in summer.  I usually get more sewing done......

Usually.

I'm still sewing binding.  I love sewing binding.  The job gives me an excuse to sit for spells at a time and just relax while I do it.  This is probably the reason why I don't take up the suggestion to attach both edges by machine despite some of the great tutorials that show how to efficiently, but aesthetically pleasingly machine sew a binding.   We're supposed to meet S's teacher for lunch next week.  She doesn't know about the quilt.  She is the type of person who I would want to be friends with even if she weren't one of S's favorite teachers.  I think she's the type of person who would appreciate a quilt.  I hope so!  I think I've got about 150 + hours in this quilt.  Taking into consideration that I'm slower than most, it's still a lot of hours.  I could have spent more time if I'd done a better job with the quilting.

Back to trying to get my head back in the quilting game.....

  1. I HATE sewing binding and labels. Nor sure why, labels are the worst.
