Warm and crinkly...

Today was a rather productive day in the ole' craft room.  With it wet and drizzly outside there was no other choice than to work on the quilt and get the binding finished off.  I had great company from a little artist that just had to work on her Spring watercolor masterpiece.  I'm sure that the pile of M&M's sitting on the desk helped bring her into the room also.  With great conversation and questions from a 6yr. old time passed quickly and before I knew it the binding was complete.
 Then it was off for a quick wash and dry...
so it could be finally be complete.

All warm and crinkly, just waiting to see if there is a wee bit of a break in the weather tomorrow so that a pic can be taken before it is packed up and shipped off to Mom on Monday.
Keep your fingers crossed.

Now I am going to treat myself to a warm bowl of apple cranberry crisp.
It's the least I can do for myself after all the hard work put into the quilt.
Then I have to figure out what to do to keep myself busy the rest of the night.


  1. Wait! The binding is hand-stitched? I'm proud of you, Kar, for making this rainy day quite the productive one. Can't wait to see the entire quilt. Are you seriously trying to make me attempt to quilt too?

  2. I can wait to see it! I love the ending the part when you put in machine! Your binding looks perfect!

  3. mmm...warm and crinkly is the best. can't wait to see it!

  4. It's beautiful Kar...I can't believe you hand sewed the binding on...You are my HERO :)))...I don't think I have the patience for that.

  5. You deserve a nice bowl of warm apple cranberry crisp. That sounds so good. And your quilt -- in all of its crinkly goodness -- is lovely.
