...than a work in progress.
This one has been the longest time in the making, and is really far from perfect! Funny how after years of practice, you can still have a humdinger... Firstly, it turned out I was not that wild on the scrappy trip when I made it myself, despite admiring other people's. Then the quilting took forever, involving a ridiculous amount of broken thread and a trip to a faraway shop to buy a new spool.
However, it had hung over the bannisters for way too long, and finally today I finished the quilting and whipped up a binding. Yes, even cheated and sewed the binding on by machine, which I hardly ever do! But, huge relief that it is finished!
Frankly, very little of it shows behind the cushions anyway ;-) And, as ever, it looks fine from a distance...
Other sewing, which was super speedy, was to whip up a little birthday present:
I'm starting to feel like fabric covered notebooks are to me what Pants Bags are to Jen!
Enjoy the rest of the week.
