It will be a holiday weekend here in Canada, so I could sew all night and sleep all day Saturday - and I just might have to sew all night - I have WAAYY too many projects, and nowhere enough time....!

Had fun setting up our new "long arm" frame (which will really just be a short-arm use for now for our Friday night sew it. Didn't sew much, but it's set up and it's fun. Now we need to practice, practice, practice!

Kathy said...

...another late poster here. Oh well. At least I got a little more accomplished.

Yes, High 5's everybody on the pillowcases last month!

Friday night sew in was a good movie and hand sewing the binding to my newest finish. It's one of my most favorite parts of a quilt: basking under the "finish" of a beautiful project.
