Saw your light on…thought I’d drop in…..

I know, I know.   I had planned to have my binding done on Saturday, but with the inclement weather, a friend of ours had to make a very unexpected but delightful, visit.  His poor ol’ plane was getting buffeted by the winds and rain and it wasn’t safe for him to continue his travels north, so he stopped over for a sleepover!  He and hubby had a grand old yack til the early hours and the next day it was off to the aerodrome to wave goodbye…..

We were worried, because the clouds were thick and dark,

but he got home safely, ready for work today!

Which gave me time to make a coffee…..put on a movie (I love Mr Popper’s Penguins!!!)……

  ……and bind!!!… So many of you said how much you love binding…well, I’m with you…..I love to stitch it on and see it finally finished!!!!…and this is one that’s taken a while.  It was started in March, 2010 at a workshop which I told you about here and here.

And finally, here she is…perty in pink…..

Oh Wendy, how exciting a finish, but also a Robyn Ginn. She is coming to Roma to tutor this quilt in March 2012. We are really excited. I will add your quilt to my inspiration file.
