First off, thanks to everyone for the well-wishes after my slippery fall! I'm practically back to good, so it's all good! Nothing a few days of rest and Advil couldn't cure! Whew! Needless to say for those few days I couldn't really use my shoulder. BOOOOOO!!! No knitting or stitching or anything! WHA!?!? I didn't like it. But am back to good now and have finished binding a couple quilts!
Today I put the final stitches in the binding on My French Coverlet! Woooohooo!
I couldn't wait to get it in the washer and then thru the dryer to get that lovely puckery pucker going!
It was quilted by my pal, Kay, who has a machine quilting business, Charmed I'm Sure. She did a mock baptist fan and I love it!
Another recently bound quilt.....
The Yellow Snow Quilt! I love the backing almost as much as the pieced top! ;o) This one was freehand cross-hatched by Susan aka Fat Quarter Quilt Farm!
Love love love it!! It looks so springy! This one has a bamboo/cotton blend batting in it, Luna from Moda, and it washed up and dried nice and puckery too! It has a nice drapey feeling....doesn't seem quite as stiff as cotton. Have you tried it? I really do like it and will use it again!
I have two more quilts down in the quilt den waiting for binding, so I cut and sewed binding strips today after I finished the handwork on these.
And then...I baked.
These. Peanut Butter & Jelly Bars. And they were good! MUST. HAVE. MILK!! I used grape jam, though not quite as much as this recipe called for and I'm glad. I think they may have been a bit too sweet had I used the entire 1 1/2 cups.
And while they were baking...I knit.
Slow progress on the Sunday Market Shawl, but it's a joy to work with this Fleece Artist Somoko. Loving the color!
I may pick up a sampler now and stitch the rest of the evening. I'm not ready for the weekend to end!
