..... QUILTING FOREVER, HOUSEWORK WHENEVER .....

Still doing FMQ...

Yup! I'm busy quilting, though not fully 
enjoying the process... I enjoy piecing the 
quilt top, and hand-stitching the bindings 
more... It is looking much less than perfect, 
but I'm Ok with that. At least it is getting 
done... Working on the borders now...
 Should I have used an invisible thread? Probably... Oh well...
 
I am hoping to get the binding on it in time to do the hand-stitching on Sunday at the Mini Retreat my CCC group is having... That way I don't need to dismantle and set up my Pfaffy... The more I can avoid hauling my Pfaffy, the better, though I need to get my Featherweight serviced so I do have a machine that is ready to grab and go with a project for my outings...

Hope you are having a productive day!
Happy stitchings!
Myra

I'd love to see the whole quilt. Slow and steady is quite often the best way to get things accomplished.

Hello Myra, I think you did a fantastic job, we are our own worst critics. I am truly amazed at what you are producing from your own little sweat factory. Maybe some of these project or PHD's will be at Show'n'tell, Austin Retreat next year? ;-) Sheryl
