I got no sewing at all done yesterday. I was out of town most of the day. I went to Little Rock for an appointment for a bone density test – I get them every couple years because of medication I am on caused osteoporosis (and it runs in the family) so it needs to be checked on a regular basis. The car needed it’s check up as well so two things scheduled for Little Rock on the same day is good – saves gas and I get in a visit with our daughter Melanie.
She took me to the new JoAnne Fabric store – well not so new anymore – I think it has been there for about 6 months or so but I have never stopped at it. It has so much more room than the old one did and looks much nicer. They do not carry the batting I like and that is about the only thing I really needed. I hadn’t stuck my coupon in my purse as I didn’t know I was going there and had left it on the sewing table. I got a couple little things but have plenty at home to keep me going for years to come
So both of the quilts are ready for binding and I’m going to get to it today. I want to get the binding cut, pressed and sewed onto both quilts leaving the hand work to get busy on.
The fabric for the bindings, several of the prints are in the quilt X Marks the Spot and the other ones match up fairly well. I believe I have enough of these – better get cutting now!
