a big step done
I have been feeling under the weather the past several days-which meant I could hand quilt without feeling any guilt at letting everything else slide. Last night I put the last stitch in the hand quilting on Texas baby. Today I hope to squeeze in time to get the top trimmed and the binding machine stitched on one side. I am going to put a label on with blank spaces for name of baby receiving it, but have it stitched down on two sides with the binding. Then I can spend time tonight or over the weekend hand stitching the back side down. I will post a photo once it's completely done. I am so pleased to have this quilt to this stage, well ahead of the mid June deadline I had mentally decided on.
Lots of running around on the day's schedule-but first, back to the gym! Boy, have I missed feeling well enough to go do that-which goes to show you the habit it has become :-)
