Well, I tried to harness and saddle my sewing chair yesterday while the energy level was good and the sun put a trance on that darn chair. I'd forgotten how easily "unclogged" wheels roll around and my new chair is sure a slipper sucker. I'd be willing to challenge you to a chair race now, before those wheels load up again with my wayward floor threads and then I'll be back in the slow rollers club once again.
Anyway, I got a burst of energy yesterday and decided to sew the binding on a Hunter Star quilt from at least 10+ yrs ago. It took 12 strips of binding, (note to self: more than 6 or 7 is probably going to be a bugger to manhandle) which I think means it was about a queen size. It was made so many years ago I don't remember and right now too lazy to measure it.....luckily I had the strips cut and with the quilt top or I would have been in deep do-do hard pressed to try and find matching fabric in my non existing minimal stash of navy,(I did find 2 fat quarters). It's crazy how navy's change over the years....Well, anyway, after a little sewing, taking a break, sewing, nap, sewing, eating, I finally got that darn thing bound. Now it's in a box to be mailed to my mother in North Carolina so that she can do the hand sewing portion of the binding. ( I need to find things to keep her busy so that she doesn't get depressed and starts to feel sorry for herself. She actually has a lot to be thankful for but just doesn't see it.)
So, lesson here, and I'd forgotten I used to do this; if you're like me and only REALLY enjoy the piecing and know darn well your top will be put on the shelf to be quilted years later, be sure to buy and maybe even cut your binding at the time you make your top and store them together... Especially if you want it all to match....no big deal on our scrappy quilts.... right? Well, hope you have a glorious day....I hope to do some more sewing today, but much smaller subjects at this time.
