Today's Appointment

This is now our afternoon routine - a nice walk! Yes, they love it!

And here's the photo I was unable to share yesterday - turning the island into a cutting table. It works so well for me to cut binding strips on the bias.

So yesterday I sewed the strips end to end and started machine sewing it to the quilt. Looks like the quilter had some fun in the outer edge of the batting!

And so, I sewed and sewed. This quilt has a scalloped edge - my first scalloped edge. I thought I knew what I was doing. I made it almost all the way around the quilt sewing on the binding when I realized....I didn't know what I was doing. I did it ALL WRONG. Sad face from me.

And so, today instead of beginning the task of hand stitching the binding to the backside of the quilt, I have an appointment with the seam ripper. Ugh! Oh well, it happens.

Moral of the story - don't do something new when you have a headache.

In other news, we are sleeping on the new mattress - what a difference! And no headache today! Yay!


  1. I also use my kitchen island to cut because its just the right height and space. I'm afraid most horizontal surfaces in my sewing room are full of stuff!

  2. I love taking the dogs on walks...we go twice a day and it clears my head in the a.m. and also clears it in the p.m. especially after a glass of wine! :)
