Just the binding to do.

Happy Halloween.  We haven't been celebrating and since there are no young children living near us we haven't had anyone ringing the door bell. I think covid has also made people less likely to go trick or treating but it could just be the weather. It has been raining quite heavily on and off for the whole weekend. Yesterday, I was working as we had an open day and by the time I got home I was too tired to sew. It had been raining so heavily while I was driving home that I just wanted to sit and relax. Today I did a few housekeeping jobs before setting up my machine to finish the quilting on the hare quilt. I had hoped to have this fully finished this month but that didn't happen. I had half of the blue border to finish and then the larger green border to do.

When I lay the quilt on the bed to take a photo Scamp decided he had to get involved. First attempt he scrabbled the quilt up so I moved him and tried again. On the second attempt he went underneath the quilt.  This was the third attempt and he still managed to ruche up the quilt a little. Never mind the photo will do to show that the quilting is done. I've also added the binding so now I need to stitch it down at the back of the quilt. That's my hand sewing for the evening and the rest of the week. I hope it stops raining soon so I can take the quilt outside to photograph when it's all complete.

I'm linking this post with Kathy from Kathy's Quilts for her Slow Sunday Stitching

Tomorrow I want to sandwich my Christmas table runner and I have a Christmas pillowcase to make. I should be able to get the binding on this quilt finished this week and I need to complete my project for the mug rug blog hop.

Take care



  1. Yay for a quilting finish! The binding will go quickly. Love your little "helper" getting your quilt ready for photographing! Some kinds of help is the kind of help ... we all could without! (A line from a book we read over and over as kids; it still comes in handy!) Happy November, Lyndsey! :)

  2. Very cute kid quilt. the dancing bunnies in the middle are really charming!

  3. Hi Lyndsey, congrats on your finish! Scamp looks comfortable and of course he needed to be in the picture :-) Take care.

  4. Nearly done now, Lyndsey! Looking forward to seeing what you make for the Mug Rug Blog Hop.
