|One of our items we are proud of currently for sale on eBay :)|
My honey has been keeping up the house and working on his things... however, we are both delighted this week to see Sunday roll around... a day we keep to ourselves and relax and reflect on the week behind us and focus on the week ahead! I love that about us :)
But I am most excited about the progress made on THE MAN quilt!
And yesterday I sewed on the binding there on the right...
Now I am hand stitching down the binding! Yahoo! Such a glorious job to do on a Sunday as well!
I don't use a thimble but already have my electrical tape out to cut into unique shapes to fit my middle "binding" finger... last large quilt I bound it wore a hole in my fingernail... so I have been taking my calcium.. using cream occasionally made to condition my skin and nails... and have trimmed my nails last week in preparation for this binding... we shall see how my hands hold up...
|Using my new "binding clips" aka Wonder Clips... love them :)|
Also yesterday I got the border added to the Aida cloth label my bestie Connie made for this quilt... isn't it lovely! It is the only part my honey hasn't seen and won't see til the end! lol His decision to have a surprise :)
And since I needed a place to "park" my needles while I machine sewed the binding yesterday and this morning... I found a bit of batting and put in the top of the bottle that holds my thread and threader! AWESOME :) Excited to do multiple needles now by prethreading several then just picking one out at a time.. more on that when I get back to quilting as I will be using more needles too :)
Now I want to share something VERY SPECIAL!
I will be chatting more about it this week but be following me here.... you won't miss an update! Next weekend we are sponsoring a linky with GIVEAWAY for all to enjoy and enter in.
& my friend
The idea is you write a blog post with goals you have made... short or long term.. and that you met this month... then share what you plan to accomplish the following month... you have your blog post to keep you honest and each of us reading your goals met as well as your goals set! Sound fun??
Finally... I have some very exciting news personally this week... as I was cleaning things out I found my old nursing license and had a sad feeling that I hadn't kept up my license... just to have it.. not that I may use it again but I worked hard to get it and used it professionally ... so it was important to maintain it... I thought it had lapsed...
Well according to the State of Tennessee it is still good and Active til my birthday!!!!
Thanks for sharing in all my little victories this week! Would love to hear about yours ... please feel free to leave a comment! I respond to every one that isn't spam-a-licious! lol
