Michael headed to the grocery store first thing Sunday morning (3/24) while I got dough put together for sandwich bread baking:
He brought home bagels and we had breakfast together, then he baked the bread:
and ran 1/2 a loaf over to Ginny & Ken, while I headed downstairs to get back to my binding.
I worked on it for a bit, with pauses to continue the clean-up of the sewing room. I finished adding it to the wrong side of the quilt, put my borrowed walking foot on my embroidery machine and started to apply it to the right side.
Michael and I spent a good bit of time out on the lanair in the afternoon as the weather was gorgeous. Anne stopped by for a bit and spent time out there as well, getting good photos of one of my babies checking out the birds:
We had leftover Shepard’s Pie for dinner and finally around 8:30 the binding was complete….YAY!!!
I’m sure some of the quilters I know who put on binding by hand would have been done much quicker….but I am very glad to have this third auction quilt done. I’ll stitch down the label:
today and it will be totally finished. On Thursday I’m sure Jerri will have finished hand stitching down the binding from the second quilt and I will be VERY glad to call the 2 ladies who ordered these quilts to come and pick them up.
