Oh it’s HOT !!

the temperature soared over 40 deg cel today, Lucy was happy to flake out in the cool laundry floor

Jan 2015

and I stayed in the Air Conned house and sewed my Binding together for the “Charm Stars” quilt.



even found a good way to hold the binding as I seed it onto the quilt…


Taa Dah !!!!! All Finished….


wasn’t going out in the heat to hang the quilt higher to get a better photo .. Sorry…

My DD has made me a fabulous quilt and I would love you to see it HERE ..... Can’t wait to visit her sew I can pick it up….
