Another hour or two of stitching, and all the edge pieces will be attached and it will be time to press and baste the baby quilt. I’m thinking that a scrappy binding made up of ’30s prints will be what I choose for this.
Because I normally match my thread colour to the pieces I’m stitching, to finish off a spool of thread isn’t something that happens frequently as a spool will last a very long time. Because of the scrappy nature of the baby quilt, I’ve been using a peachy pink heirloom cotton thread which seems to melt into the seams of every colour for piecing and on Wednesday night actually used the very last bit on the spool.
I’ve not been doing well in responding to comments this week or in leaving comments. There’s no real good excuse for this other than I’ve been dealing with some news about changes in one company with which I work which has left me rather drained. I really do appreciate and read every comment and hope to get caught up on the replies and comments over the next day or two.
Smudge was posing for the camera Wednesday. He has always been a camera ham but, for the past month or so, hasn’t been quite as interested. However, on Wednesday when he heard the camera being turned on, he definitely started striking poses. I think it’s another sign he’s feeling better.
Lester was caught in a funny pose in the kitty bed.
