The 'Either-Very-Late-Or-Exceptionally-Early-Christmas-Strippy' is back from its sojourn to deepest darkest Bendigo, having thoroughly enjoyed it's stay with Jodi Abel of Daisy Patch Quilting.
As you can see, MissC has thoroughly CATscanned it,
and found it to be most acceptable to her refined tastes, and she is just waiting for the household staff, aka ME, to :
a] finish washing the green fabric for the binding [ which I've had forever, and already washed once but there was a distinct and pervasive odeur-de-chat so it's in the wash again ]
b] iron it
c] cut it into enough 2.5" strips to go around the quilt
d] join them together and iron 'em in half lengthwise
e] Machine sew to the front of the quilt, making nice neat mitres at the corners, and an imperceptable join where it all meets up again
f] Hand sew 30 odd feet of binding to the back
so I guess we all know what the rest of this week holds for Catsmum, eh?
and with no attempt at a clever segue whatsoever, here's just a glimpse of the gift that's going into the mail tomorrow
it's another Forest Canopy Shawl
I'll spare you the details*
