It's always soooo exciting to get a quilt back from the quilter, except then you have to bind it.
I hate binding!
It is mind numbing, hurts your fingers, makes your hand ache and just goes on and on forever.
I would happily trade skills I have (cooking, cleaning, babysitting, gardening and lot's more) if some sweet soul would come in and do a little binding for me.
I would tuck you up on the couch, with a blankie by the fire, make you a cuppa, your choice, have fresh made muffins for you, get you some slippers, put the telly or the radio on for you, some lollies in case you get the munchies, look after the kids and pick some flowers for you and in return I just need a few metres of binding done.
Any takers just let me know.
But while I'm waiting it took a while but the Christmas quilt is done.
It may have sat in a dark cold cupboard for close to 12 years but it is now finally finished.
