Saturday evening progess report!!

The back is on the Diamond quilt and I've started quilting it - Yay!! I've decided that I'm just going finish it - no fancy stuff on the other side (couldn't figure out how I'd quilt it if I did and thought that my time would be better spent on other things). The quilting is really simple stuff - stitch in the ditch!! I've done maybe half of it and should be able to get the rest done tomorrow. As for the binding, we'll see how we go... REckon I might get so far as attaching one side - the hand stitching part will be next weeks television job.

Also managed to cut out the pieces for the handbag as planned.

Now it's time for bed. My back and neck and arms need a break, they've spent most of the day bending over a sewing machine and holding up the great bulk that is my quilt, or bending over the quilt layed out on the floor - the only space big enough to spread it out. As you can see in the picture it fits nicely on the double bed in the spare room.

Night night...
