Bound -

Took me a bit longer than expected - but both the Christmas embroidered block table runner (3x1) and table topper (3x3) are finally bound -

Tah Dah!! - ;))

And a couple of close-ups - ;))

The backing on the table runner is the red - but I barely had enough red left to bind them both - so I backed the table topper with the lighter holly print - ;))

They still need labels but I might be lazy and let SuzieQ do her thing with her cool little alphabet font - haven't decided yet - ;))

I do like the Susie's Magic Binding method that I mentioned in previous posts - little flange detail and sewn TOTALLY by machine - which is a HUGE plus since hand work is getting more difficult for me as time goes by - ;))

Tomorrow I'm going to take "inventory" and see what's what - and see where that takes me - so stay tuned - ;))

Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -


  1. These look great. I love that binding detail. I have that tutorial saved on my blog. I always intend to do it, but haven't done it yet.

    1. Thanks, Karen - you really should try the binding method - I think you'll like it - ;))

  2. I need to remember the Magic Binding trick. I sew mine by machine anyway, but that does add a nice touch.
    good job on your finishes.

    1. Thanks, Gene - you should try the binding method - it's pretty straight-forward and looks harder than it really is. I think you'll like it - ;))

  3. Love that binding! They look really nice.

    1. Thanks, Katie - and THANKS for the blocks - ;)) You really should try the binding method, too - it's my new favorite way of making binding - ;))


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 The only ones that I DO NOT publish are the “buy-me” and "spam" crap.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 - ;))
