A bit of binding -

Why is it that whatever I want to do usually takes MUCH longer to do than I think it will? Does that ever happen to you - totally underestimate the time it takes to do something? - ;))

All I wanted to do today was trim both the Christmas embroidered block table runner (3x1) and table topper (3x3) - make the binding - and then bind them. That's it - nothing HUGE - and I did get them trimmed and I made the binding - but that's as far as I got - tomorrow will have to be "binding" day - ;))

And I have a new PLAN - ;))

Instead of having a bunch of tops that need quilting and then trying to figure out "what" to quilt in each section - I'm going to try to REVERSE it. I think that I'm going to try to get the backs made - layer/baste the tops - then when I find a design that I want to "play with" - I'll have the "what" - and then I can decide which top I want to use and "where" I want to quilt it.

Sounds good in theory, huh? - ;))

On that note - Lori Kennedy - The Inbox Jaunt - HERE - has some terrific tutorials and a bunch of designs that I want to try. She has said - HERE -
For the next few weeks we are going to concentrate on quilting square blocks.
That sounds perfect for my Sudoku quilts -

Now I need to get them ready to play - ;))

Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -


  1. OMG - if things ever went according to 'plan' for me, I'd think the end of the world was coming :-) I started working on a block Monday and had 'planned' to sew them up yesterday - shoot, I never even made it into my sewing room! Such is life and if I was a southern gal, I guess I could say "Today is another Day"

    1. Thanks, Katie - guess we are two more examples of one of my favorite quotes -

I love reading your comments -
they let me know that I'm not just talking to myself - ;))

FYI - I have always restricted comments to “Registered User” - and I have always moderated my comments - and I will continue to do so. I like to read your comments before I publish them - and I DO publish ALL of them - whether you agree with me or not. The only ones that I DO NOT publish are the “buy-me” and "spam" crap.

So - if you want to leave a comment but don’t like your word verification choice - hit the little arrow thingy to the right of the box until you find one that you DO like. I can’t always read them either but word verification is there for a reason and I refuse to be bullied into taking it off - ;))
