Happy New Year to all! More snow last night! I can't remember this much snow (except for last year but that wasn't as much as this year). I feel like I am living in the most northern part of BC. The west coast of BC rarely has weather like this and yet here we are; with more to come in the following week. I must admit I feel like a house-hostage. Much sewing is being done and it's fun to be a domestic diva, but I really miss a simple walk on the trails--the snow, although doable is making that a bit treacherous!
I refinished the binding on my youngest DS's quilts. These were made five years ago when they were just small guys. The binding I used was an inexpensive flannel and I regretted it. I pulled it all off and reattached a cotton Clothworks binding from Laurel Burch. Oh my, it's so vibrant and lovely and of fabulous quality. These quilts have been so well used and loved and the binding makes them look brand new! It's all flannel (great quality) on the front and I used a wide cotton fabric for the back. I still love these bright and funky kids fabrics, but my children are too old for these now! I may have to put together some kits for my Etsy store. I still have some of the fabrics and they would be so cheery to work with now.
and finally the backing (which I love) It launders so well - and has really added support to these quilts.
... oh well, time to go shovel....
