Yes, I managed to get it done with the help of the sewing angels! I had to sew the binding on all by machine, but it is what it is.
I was sweating it that I was going to run out of black thread as I frantically sewed the binding down. As you can see I had plenty! LOL!!!
I had to spend part of my day at work moving from a small conference room that I was using as office space to a cubical. What a pain. I like being in the small conference room because I could control the lighting. The overhead lights are just too bright for me so I just kept them off in the conference room and used my Ott light. Now I have no control and I have to wear a visor to block out the overhead lights. Sometimes I have to use my magnifiers to read so that will be a real trick to wear them and the visor.
Oh well, it is Friday and I am glad about that. We have a Lunch 'n Learn today so it is Chipotle for lunch. I know there will be lots of food and lots of leftovers. I always help the other women clean up afterward - and there is some serious clean up to do. There are always leftovers and so I know what I will be having for meals this weekend.
I plan on working on using up the 2 1/2" and 3 1/2" strips of African fabric that were in that pile. I will be cutting solid Kona to pair up with them so there are many more checkerboard baby quilts that will be made.
Have a great weekend!
