I might have retired from the Postie job, but that seemed to be the signal for everything else to crank up a notch. We've been so busy running around visiting family and finishing quilts and to top it off I developed the worst cold I've had in years and felt quite ill. I'm on the mend now, but I've still got four days of commitments before I can have a breather. I'd love to pretend it's Christmas and read some books, do a jigsaw and just potter around, but even now I can hear the quilts cracking their tiny whips, "Back to work!!"
I've been trying to tidy up the workshop and came across some of my quilts that need binding, so I got busy and finished three of them.
These were smaller quilts that I quilted some time ago- I think the blue and yellow one had been sitting there for five years!
I had the bindings prepared and stored with them, and somehow I just never made it a priority.
Now they are done, and can be used or sold or given away. I don't know why I put off binding, because I love that final step, and we've done so many over the years for customers (hundreds in fact) that it only takes me an hour or so for these small ones. I'm just a procrastinator I guess.
At least they don't have to live in the workroom anymore, so I've cleared a bit of room.
