Last night after finishing two sides of the binding, I tossed Heritage on the bed to get a good look at it in different light. Why is it the phone takes a better picture than my 'real' camera?
It seemed as though I would never get all of the binding sewn on the quilt. Now for the hand stitching. I actually love to work on the binding. It is very relaxing and gives me a sense of completion.
I guess I'm going to have to make another Heritage. One for traveling to shows and quilt shops and one for home. Mr. Joe likes this one a lot. The 'logs' in the quilt match the logs at the cabin.
Two sides of the binding are done. I know I have to quit when the muscle in my arm starts to burn. It was on fire last night.
Thank you all for your wonderful comments on my post yesterday. I will try to send all of you a personal thank you email today. Susie H. you leave the nicest comments but I can't get in touch with you since I don't have your email. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org so I can thank you for all of your wonderful comments. That goes for everyone out there in blogland who is a "no-reply" status.
Today I'm going to bind for an hour and write the pattern for an hour....repeat, repeat, repeat. Then maybe my arm won't fall off! In between my binding and computer work, I'll take Mazey for a walk in the woods. Mr. Joe knows that I won't use the $50 can of bear spray that he bought me. His latest plan is to buy me an air horn for Mother's Day to take with me on my walks. Don't you think I should use the air horn around 3am in Mr. Joe's ear? Now that would get his old adrenalin pumping! Anyone want to go for a walk with Mazey and me today?
