My back is aching and I am sick of the sight and sound of my sewing machine but the commission is finished! I have even sewn down the binding.It measures 110cm x 124 cm ( 43 inches x 49 inches) I like it much better now that the stitching is in place. Just have the sleeve to sew and then it is ready to send tomorrow- and another thing off the to do list.
Tomorrow we go to my in-laws for a few days so will take hand sewing with me and finish two pieces I am working on I hope. Egypt is staring to loom closer and closer- we leave on the 22nd of January and I have to get a lot more work done for my exhibition in France. As per usual I think I can do much more that I actually can so am in the process of ditching ideas. Still have a project quilt and article to write for the German magazine Patchwork Ideen- that's next on the list, then quilting the fire quilt which has been patiently sitting around and waiting and then we'll see what energy is left- but it is a flying start to the year!
