Putting on the bow... slowly!

Yep... slowly I am "putting on the bow" of Kaydence's Baby Quilt :)  (It hasn't found another name).

And "putting on the bow" is a fun way of thinking of hand stitching down the binding (always leaves me sad to see a project end) ... now does my post make more sense? lol
A friend in one of my fave hand quilting facebook groups said this recently and it inspired me to finish it... so today I am gonna focus on binding a bit more...

And once I finish sewing on the binding I need to embroider the label and applique it in place...
NOT looking forward to this for some reason and unsure why really... it is an easy process and I am prepared for it... have it all laid out and ready to go... so why the hesitation??? I wish I knew! lol

Meanwhile... around Casa Del Loro we are fertilizing and sprucing from the winter and letting the spring sun bring things back to life here on Florida's east coast.  You see during the winter things just go dormant... turn old looking and chill... not much new growth... even on indoor plants... it is their hibernating phase I think! lol

While we wait over the next month for the sprinklers and nature to water all that fertilizer in and get back to yard cutting the summer away... my honey has decided to take on a tile setting job for our kitchen floor!  Yep ... nice 12" porcelain that matches all the rest of the tile we bought for Casa Del Loro.  So that will be something I can share with you over the weekend.  We plan to make it a family project and each take a job to make it flow better :)

Are you getting Spring fever yet where you live???  Maybe it is all the motorcycles we hear as it is Bike Week here and Spring Break has begun for many who visit as well!

So as I bind and we tile I hope you have a blessed weekend yourself...

  1. the quilt looks terrific! Sometimes I too get just about finished with a project and put is aside for a few days or week - don't know why - just happens. I am so looking forward to spring! I will be here in Wisconsin until the 23 and just saw on the news a possibility of snow showers on the last two days I am here - at least it won't be a blizzard and maybe it will disappear from the forecast. At home in Arkansas it is raining and spring flowers are beginning to bloom.

  2. I enjoy the binding process too. And I feel the exact same way about the label. However, I love the label when I'm finished! I like your own fabric for the label. I need to pay attention for something cute like that. My labels are rather boring!

  3. Definitely have spring fever here. We have had below average temps since Valentines Day. What is with that! We have a lot of rain and gray days in the winter so yesterday when the sun came out we just had to sit out on the patio for few minutes. Looking forward to what you will put on your label.

  4. I think that's going to be an adorable label! I can't wait to see it finished and on the quilt. I've got spring fever here, and the weather is cooperating right now - going to be in the 70s today. But for all I know, we could have more snow next week. ha!
