A number of sewing projects have been hanging fire-this month was finish some of them off without starting new ones. How'd that go?
Well, let's start with two wide lengths of a soft, pastel, spring bedding for me now that Diamonds is too warm.
|Both needed hemming on the two non-selvage ends.|
So that went well and wasn't nearly as complex as I anticipated. I didn't try the iron, being unsure exactly what the fabric is, so I turned it under twice, pinned and went for broke on the machine. It worked out fine.

Then there were a couple pieces that I had "finished" and yet had never tied. So I dug those out from under the Baby and did just that. Tied and finished two more of my favorites. No, three...
Hello memory, come home for lunch sometime ok !~!
So it was Denim & Batik, Holland/Myra, and Components that got their final touches in the last week. All tied with purple cotton I have used for all tying projects so far. What will I do when my only spool runs dry ?~!
Denim & Batik
All three tied and knotted with my ubiquitous purple cotton thread.

Mountain Steps hung in my living room window for some months until I got it batted and backed. Now it's binding time. My girlfriend, PLM, found a treasure of old bindings in a thrift store and gifted me a fistful of packages.
Among them is the Navy I use here.
Not a perfect match for the border fabric but hey,
I'm all about mismatched and making do with what's available.

Linking up to Barbara at Cat Patches FO party for April is this little gem I whipped together for Ginger.

And the gratuitous Burp shot. He's telling a mighty story here.
