In a Bind

In my previous post I mentioned how much I hate prefer not to sew bindings on my quilts. Well, I have angered the binding gods!!! I've been cutting out the bindings for the five, count them, five quilts I have to bind. So today I started on the binding for the quilt that I'm giving to my dear friend . Now who could that be? Hmmmmmm. Thankfully I had just started sewing it on and hadn't gone far. In fact I hadn't even turned a corner yet. I was sewing it on the wrong side!!!!! I know better than that!!!!! Luckily I didn't have much to pick out and my machine length was set at 3 so it didn't take me long to take it off. See my little white well-used seam ripper. Can't live without it!

So I'm off to the showers to cool down, I'm taking a pill for my headache, I'll make my peace with the binding gods and start again.

Good grief!

I like to think of this as "frog sewing".. rip-it-rip-it-rip-it

PS: When I was reading your post, I had Scooby Doo's voice in my head saying this:

"Wro-Wro, Shaggy!"

Ooooh that is going to be a darling quilt! Lurve the dots! I couldn't help but laugh though, you write like you talk and I could see the whole scene unfolding in front of me! Alright, now go lay down with a cold compress on your forehead and get some rest!

Don't do like I would probably do - and have done with other projects - do it again. Like a previous poster - I hate unsewing and unknitting.

Hope all is going well.


PS - I got to see some of your beautiful sewing yesterday.
