When I get to stay at home on a Saturday and Sew, I feel like I have just won the lottery!
Now to some that might feel a little exaggerated, but not for me.
In this busy, rush, rush era that we all live in, it seems that there is hardly ever a day of "rest"!
Sunday is supposed to be that day, but it often seems that Sunday is an "extra" day, not a rest day.
When I say an extra day, I mean a day to play catch-up on work, chores, or shopping.
So, when I get a sewing Saturday I feel blessed.
Thankfully, I used my time wisely and got a lot accomplished.
I attached a few bindings, but I didn't finish them yet. I will hopefully accomplish that before the weekend is over.
Here is one binding being sewn on.It took a lot of time to cut scraps into usable binding strips and then sew them all together.
It doesn't sound like a lot of work, but you can't just sew the strips end to end. For binding they have to be sewn on at a diagonal to avoid so many layers of fabric going under the needle at once.
I really LOVE it. I do think I need to add another border.
I just haven't decided what color fabric to use for it.
