Ok so there's still the small matter of a binding... but the bulk of the work is completed.
This morning I woke feeling not that much different to yesterday. Thank you to those of you who sent me cyber hugs they were very much appreciated.
However I took a firm hold of myself, shook myself (metaphorically, you understand) and decided that I was going to achieve something today
And here we are - Spencer's Stars has been sitting on my sewing table whispering reproachfully at me for weeks... "You know you've still got me to finish... never mind playing with all those bright coloured hand dyes.... this baby will be starting school before you get off your behind to get me finished at this rate....." and so on and so forth
So I did it! I cleared enough junk on the top of the table to avoid quilting a stray bit of something inadvertently into the back of the quilt - yes I've done that before! - and cracked on with it.
Mind you a solid afternoon sitting machine quilting had to be broken up now and again or my back would've objected a bit too much. I was either popping across the room to the computer to look at the BBC website see how Gloucester were doing against Leicester in the Guinness Championship final (we lost - boo hoo!) or I was nipping into the conservatory and ironing a couple of items from the ironing pile to stand up and stretch my back out - multi-tasking or what?
Anyway the main thing is it's one major UFO out of the quilting pile and into the binding pile (and some of the ironing done too)
Now.... if only I could remember where I've put that putty coloured leftover fabric for the binding!
