Binding! And a Few Binding Tips...
I cut lots of strips from lots of cheddar fabrics. How many strips? A LOT! I will admit that I never measure the quilt circumference OR make 'just enough' binding. I alway cut more than I will think I'll need. Leftover binding gets wound up and put in my drawer for extra bindings. Sometimes I get lucky and find the perfect leftover piece all ready for a quilt.

Cross Stitch and Hand Piecing
I feel like I sewed like a maniac every weekend during January and February, so I have definitely slowed down my pace. I'm adding other things to my weekends such as doll house work. Last weekend I sanded the epoxy bondo spots and found one place that needed a bit more. I applied that. This weekend I'll be ready to start priming the house, inside and out. A BIG job- one that will take more than one weekend I think. But it really needs to be done! Once I get the house primed and painted, I plan to start tackling one room at a time- looking forward to the decorating!
Continue to stay safe. And happy!

Cross Stitch and Miscellaneous Update
I finished the February block on the last day of the month. I had planned to something special on the door of the house, but it didn't work out so I simply added a 'W'. Done!
In this picture, you can see the entire piece - look closely and you will see that I have barely started on the border of the next block. This next block is not the March block though - it's a bonus block. Will I able to finish both the bonus block AND the March block in one month???? That is the question.... we'll just have to see.
After finishing so many quilt tops and backings, I haven't done much sewing since. I have done other sewing related things though.
This week I have also cut out two different bags I plan to make soon. Love the bottom fabric so much - designed by Tina Tarr. I recently took a class from Tina Tarr via the Internet on how she makes her portraits - fun little course! I hope to try it soon.
