It has been overcast and quite cool all day today and I was lucky enough to spend it stitching.
I worked on my Trip Around the World quilt in front of a lovely fire at my friend, Leona's house. This is becoming a very nice habit with a few friends to catch up every fortnight. So much warmer here than at my house too!!!
Lunch was a delicious warm chicken salad with pear and pecans and yummy olive bread. This is fast becoming my favourite salad.
We had some homemade carrot cake too and I had a little "friend" watch me put every single mouthful in and feel extremely guilty about it. Isn't she cute?
Such a lovely stitching day with great company. I could get used to this.
Tonight the stitching continued. I've seen this great little binding kit popping up on Instagram everywhere. What a great idea! So I decided I had to make one for a gift for a friend. Inside there is a little strawberry scissor case....
....and a zippered compartment for your binding clips.
Another pocket for "treats", a felt needle holder and a strap for holding your reel of cotton. Everything you need for binding.
This was such a great tutorial and so much fun to make, that I think I need to make one for myself now! Did I mention it's a free tutorial too??? You will find the details of the Goody Goody Binding kit and sew along here on Lella Boutique's blog.
Hope you've had a great day too!
