There's less that a week until April folks - FAL Q1 2014 is zooming up on us, which brings me two sets of angst.
Getting stuff finished, and then making sure I have something started to put on my Q2 list! But we'll stick with the former for today.
I have two quilts left on my list, one of them is my Midnight At The Oasis, and that isn't going to be finished any time soon, but I am OK with that.
My Hadley quilt is another story. The top was finished probably back in October, November time; I even cut the backing, but it has sat waiting for me to get the energy to even contemplate basting it, never-alone quilting it. But today was the day.
Children safely dispatched to school; no strike action for me to re-organise my life around, thank goodness, and hubby left in bed poorly; I cracked on.
Binding was made, backing pieced and the whole thing basted, all in a couple of hours, then the quilting could begin...
I managed to use up a whole small spool of Aurifil, but before panic could set in, I found a super match in some old Gutermann, so I could get the quilting finished and binding on, all before I went back out to get the kids at 3pm...
The colours are a bit all over the place in those indoor photos, this outdoor shot is truer,
I have begun stitching down the binding already, but I feel like I am paying for my excess, so that's me done for the day.
Hopefully I will have this finished by the weekend - if the weather is fine I have a good photo op on Saturday, so that's my stitchy action sorted for the rest of the week xxx
