First stitches for 2 weeks...

Has it really been that long?!!!

I got started on the binding of Sue's Japanese Quilt on Sunday evening (after another weekend of house-stuff that I promise to reveal soon). I've trimmed the excess and squared it us (as best I can) and cut the strips ready to be joined for the binding.

I also made a start on the hand-stitching on the blocks where I didn't do any machine quilting - the japanese word blocks. So far I've just done a running stitch around the outside and will stitch around the the black letter as well. Finally I will hand embroider the English meaning of the word on each block.
