This is what I’ve been slowly working on during the weeknights this week:
My brother gave me his favorite mittens to darn, since one of them had a hole near the fingertips and a big hole in the thumb. I’m not a big fan of darning because I don’t really know how to do it, especially with such a big area that doesn’t have much yarn/thread left to pull back together. I usually just make it up as I go along. He gave these to me a couple weeks ago, and I forgot about them! (sorry Mike!) They will be in the mail this afternoon.
I have resolved to not start another quilt this year until I finish the unfinished ones in my house. To keep up with that resolution, I send three quilts to a machine-quilter friend of mine a few weeks ago. I sewed the binding onto my Darla quilt last Sunday, and I’m trying to get the binding hand-sewn onto the back by the weekend.
If I get that binding finished in the next couple nights, I’m planning on quilting my Mod Girls quilt this weekend, which I’m really excited to finish because I love that quilt! I even have the binding all ready sewn together and pressed, lined up to attached to a finished quilt. I also have a bunch of products to work on for my shop, so you can find me in what Dave calls the “girl cave” for the next few nights.
