London Friendship guild so one evening last week, I made the binding and machine sewed it to the quilt. I did the hand stitching in the car on the way to our daughter's place.
The sun was shining, providing great lighting for my stitching.
By the time we got there, I had finished the binding!
Members of the guild made the blocks and the quilt was assembled by a member of the comfort quilt committee. Cathy quilted it and I did the binding. It will be given to a member of our guild who needs some comfort and support during a rough time in her life. The friendship stars are appropriate.
On the way home, I worked on some EPP plus signs...until it go dark and I could not see to sew.
I had all the things I needed in my hand stitching bag that Cathy made for me for Christmas. I had material cut for 9 plus signs.
I finished 4 plus signs and started two others. I somehow lost the fourth piece of material for one of the plus signs in the car...I will just have to cut another piece so I can finish that one off.
Although we have not had very much snow this winter, there had been no shortage of snow where my daughter lives. On Saturday morning, we went skating on a 3km trail though the woods. The owner of the trail has a seasonal business and decided to make a skating rink through the woods on his property so people could come and enjoy the scenery. He bought a used fire truck to flood the ice and a Zamboni to smooth the surface each night. As you can see, it was a beautiful place to go skating!
The temperatures rose above freezing later in the day and the ice trail was closed so we are all glad we got to skate through the woods. We hope to go again next year!
I will be linking up to Kathy's slow Sunday stitching.
