With the binding of my new quilt all pinned in place, today was a slow sewing kind of day. The plan to sit outside on the patio, shaded from the summer sun under our large umbrella while enjoying my stitching time just never happened. Summer deserted us today, after a gorgeous day yesterday. The cold wind was blowing, a few showers passed by, so there was no sitting outside for me. Instead I set myself up at the dining table.
Stitching at the dining table
Everything was at hand. My pin container – check, small scissors – check, thread catcher – check. It’s a bed quilt, so stitching the binding down by hand will take a while. But this is a rather restful task to do, so I’ll take my time, and enjoy it, every step of the way. And I don’t have to finish the job in one day, do I?
