At last ,something useful I CAN do

OK, no one would say this is the most inspirational quilt in the world but it's going to one of the kids at the women's refuge. One local quilter wanted to practice a pantograph and all I have to do is hand sew the binding down. I see a day of day time TV coming (or at least looking at past programs we've recorded).
You've heard of the Quilt Police? Well, in the form of my DH, I live with the Leg Police. Each morning and evening he checks on it's progress.The bruising is finally going down but yesterday I spent a little longer on my feet than previously and my leg was a tad swollen last night. I'm under orders not to stand today. So very frustrating when it doesn't hurt any more. (though I haven't tried kneeling on it yet)


  1. What a lovely quilt...and yes sewing on a binding on a huge quilt will keep you off your feet. Take care and get well soon!!

  2. simple, yes...and lovely, absolutely!
    gee, I hate that you are being reduced to watching daytime TV...I don't know how it is in the UK, but here in the states, it's the lowest common denominator kind of stuff. simply awful!
    Thank God for Netflix and TV/DVD combo units. I plan to get one for my sewing room after the holidays so that I can have my choice of good films to watch.
