Sneak Peek

My body aches! My shoulder in particular. I never realized quilting could be so physically grinding. Someday when I win the lottery, I'm buying an ergonomically correct sewing table! Oh, and installing it in a room dedicated solely to sewing. :)

Here's a peek of what I've been working on this weekend.

I finished the top last weekend, and spent yesterday basting and quilting (into the wee hours). This afternoon, I attached the binding to the front. Now all I have to do is sew it to the back, which I always enjoy doing by hand. It's a nice respite from the "sewing shoulder" I developed.

All in all, it's been a good and productive sewing weekend.



  1. Ooh, it's so retro - cute! How did you quilt it that you had to stop so often?

    By the way, thanks for your comments on my blog - I'd love to answer them but your settings don't allow that - email me if you'd like to change that, it's really simple...


  2. This is so cute! We hope you feel better soon, we look forward to seeing more from you in the future!
