Slow Sunday Stitching - Last July Linky
Can you believe that I have been hand stitching three different quilt bindings this week?!?
Somehow I ended up stitching down two of my sister's bindings recently.
Hand binding is the perfect project for road trips, and this is one of her quilts I finished while she drove me around on the Yours to Discover shop hop. I guess it's a good trade off... she drives, and I navigate, while I stitching the binding on her quilts (as long as the air conditioning is on full blast!)
As soon as I finished that quilt, she quickly produced another quilt for me to bind...I think I have started a bad pattern here!
Can you see the lovely thumb nail art that one of the ER night shift nurses painted for me?!? She used a "Nail Art Pen" and I have been admiring her design every time I did some hand stitching this week. But it wore off too quickly (too much time spent washing dishes!) and I need to work another night shift to get a re-do (or learn to do it myself)!
And the third quilt is my July UFO quilt that I have started binding in hopes of finishing it by July 31st.
Do you stitch your binding in the same direction as I do?
I stitch from right to left, but have noticed that many people prefer to stitch from left to right.
This is the last week to enter the slow stitching draw - just link up your hand stitching blogpost below before July 31st, and your name will go in the draw. The draw winner will be announced next Sunday, and there will be a new gift draw starting in August.
