I'm out of the house all day today, but I still wanted to give you an update of the projects I have been working on this week.
I added a simple border to the mini sampler I showed you last week. I thought it would be too much to add a three inch border of one fabric, so I split it between two. I'm very happy with the results. I have marked it in an overall quilting pattern and am going to use a medium tan for the quilting. Haven't selected a fabric for the binding, though I am thinking something on the darker side.
My little Jane Austen quilt is somewhere in the capable hands of Canada Post. I'll let you know when she makes her next guest appearance. I must say, I am surprised that I miss having her here. She provided me a good sounding board for the last two weeks. Always very supportive.
The weather here in my area of Ontario, Canada has been record setting hot. Such a foolish time to be sitting knitting with a lap full of afghan. Oh well, I never did say that I was a brilliant planner. Anyone else working on an afghan at this time? I'll love to see pictures. Leave a link in the comments and I'll come take a look.
Be sure to hop over to Lit and Laundry to view the cutest needlework bunnies.
