My weekend

This weekend the Oh! bearded one was away with Scouts and DD wasn't working so I didn't have Little Gromit either so I sewed!

This quilt has been back from the quilter (Jude) for a good few weeks. It was supposed to be for my Dad but he can't stand even something this heavy on his very sore feet so it has been sat about. I decided I would, at least get the binding on it. I am now hand stitching it down and am about half way round.

I made this little quilt ages ago for the care home I was working in. That never happened. I came across a Facebook group that makes things for good causes. One of the requests were for small quilts for a care home in Cumbria so this quilt is going there as soon as I have hand stitched the binding down.

I started this quilt in 2012 as a mystery quilt through the quilt group I belonged to at that time. It's component parts have been just sitting there. I thought it would be suitable for my Mum for her 80th birthday in August. It just needs its borders then it will be off to Jude

Can you package up some of your sewing mojo and send it to me? I really want to stitch some things I have started but it seems like too much effort to get going.
