Last Nights Sewing and a Small Stash Sunday.

Last night I turned off the computer and actually sewed! Too many night's I just sit on the net looking at blogs and flickr and admiring other peoples amazing work and dreaming and then next thing I know its midnight and I have done no sewing! So last night I turned it off and sewed. The TV was on in the background and Rockwiz was on, Daz loves that show. One of last nights guests was Tony Hadley. *sigh* I loved this guy in the 80's in early high school, had the Spandau Ballet poster, t shirt, the album, *sigh* Hearing him sing True again had me stopped in my sewing tracks. What a classic, just had to find it on You Tube and paste it here so I can simply play it over and over again while I post it.


And so when he had finished singing I returned my attention back to this little dolls quilt and finished it! I ended up going for strippey binding cause there is something so yummy about stripes on binding! I especially like the back, I did it white thread on purpose, add a bit of contrast. I sewed down the binding today.

I have sewed down the binding on 2 sides to my second version of this design in pink and oranges. Once again undecided which one to send. Typical Helen....

And for Sunday Stash seeing as thought it is Sunday, I got this fat quarter from Ads today from Denyse Schmidt's Flea Market Fancy range. Very nice indeed.

"Why do I find it hard to write the next line? When I want the truth to be saidddddd. I know this much , I know this much is trueeeeee!
