Anyway, I hope you all had a lovely weekend. The weather was lovely here although we did have quite a big thunderstorm one night! So, what have I been up to? Well, I haven't had time for a huge amount of sewing but, I did add the next stitch to my 'Sew Simple Things Sampler' designed by Serena Boffa Soda of La Casetta Nel Bosco.
I also made a few (10) little tissue sachets for a friend who had asked me to make them for her. They are currently on their way to her new home, so I hope she likes them when they get there!!
Lastly, I have nearly finished my miniature landscape quilt which, I am quite pleased with for a first attempt. The main reason this isn't completely finished is that I spent hours procrastinating over which fabric to use for a binding. In the end, I decided to try out something I have been meaning to try for some little while.... facing a quilt. I watched various videos on how to face a quilt on YouTube before taking the plunge and giving it a try.
Facing a quilt means that you have no binding showing on the front of the quilt as it is all pulled round to the back. It is slightly easier than adding the binding as you add four individually cut strips which don't need to be joined before stitching to the quilt and there is no need to mitre the corners. I haven't finished stitching mine to the back yet but I hope to get that done this week. Nice to have an alternative finish to use for a quilt project!
