just a few charm packs to add to the stash. I think I feel like I have too much fabric, but, what harm could a cute little charm pack do....
|I am counting this as 5 yards|

I stitched at least 15 minutes 4 days this week. Now that it gets dark outside, I find it harder to go upstairs in the evening.
I have really struggled to work on this rug hooking project. Once the friendsheep exchange began in my guild, it was even harder. I just wanted to get started on the "new" thing. So, I asked my hubby to finish it, and, he had it done in no time. I, we, ( still negotiating) still have to turn the edges and hand stitch a back to it.
I hand stitched a binding again for my on the go quilt. I miss doing the binding by hand. I just feel like I don't have the time. It just looks so much better. Which one are you? hand binding or machine binding?

I'm definitely an advocate for hand binding; it's my favorite part!! Nice that you could turn a project over to your hubbie to finish! My sewing space is outside ... so you can appreciate that I share your sentiment about struggling to get to it when it gets so dark so early these days! :)ReplyDelete
Congratulations on finishing your rug hooking project! Hope you have a great week!ReplyDelete
I always loved hand binding, but started doing most of them by machine about 10 years ago. It saves a lot of time.ReplyDelete
Hubby did a great job finishing that sheep. I like to hand stitch the binding. I think it looks so much better. I like the beige print fat quarter.ReplyDelete
I love those charm packs. I wonder if the Bella Solids could be used with those colorful ones to make a quilt? You do pick some beautiful fabrics!ReplyDelete
I hand bind I tried to do it by machine once but I felt like it was very messy. I love charm packs you really can do a lot with themReplyDelete
Time change does make it harder to get upstairs to sew, it just seems so much later and thus I must be more tired. Still you had good week on the stitchy front. I prefer to stitch my bindings down by hand. It's a long good buy to the finished quilt.ReplyDelete
