I’ve decided it’s been five years.
And now it’s complete.
It’s halfway decent piecing, but it’s not the prettiest quilting. The binding might be a little dark, but it’s what I had on hand. Putting all of that aside, I’m overjoyed that it’s already been put to use by me and the pup for some good Sherlock-watching snuggle time.
I’m beginning to tire of my quilt backs. I’ve been reluctant to “use up” fabrics from my stash on the backs of quilts, but I’m bored with photographing those numbers. I used to be so excited about them! Too much of a good thing…
Ah, but these labels. I never tire of them. I’m still so tickled every time I sew one into a binding. It adds a feeling of “completeness” to the things I make. And, it makes me feel a bit professional even when I’m anything but.
Have a GREAT weekend! My inlaws are coming, and I’m one of the lucky ones that gets to honestly say (on my blog, no less!) that I enjoy visits from my inlaws.
