Binding in process

It was a busy evening, but I managed to get the binding cut, pieced and pressed for the B&W quilt. This 1 1/2" piece is all I have left after cutting the strips for the binding! That is cutting it close! LOL!! I didn't measure before I started cutting - I just went for it!.
I got the binding sewn on two sides.
After work I had to get my 5,000 mile check up for my tires. Remember back in January when I bought these and sat outside on their bench while I waited? I didn't want to sit inside because of covid. I killed my time by cross stitching while it snowed. Here is a photo of their informational sign.  It reads 32 degrees.
Here is what the sign showed last evening as I sat on the bench waiting. A bit different!
My appointment was at 5 p.m. I arrived at 4:45 and they were done at 4:55. These tire guys don't mess around! I am taking vacation tomorrow. My nephew has one of the biggest shows this season Friday night in Lorain, Ohio. He is opening for ZOSO which is the number one Led Zeppelin band in the country. Right now there is a 40% chance of rain. Lets hope that changes to zero. Saturday we have a show in Kent, Ohio, so you know how I will be spending most of my weekend. I am going to try and get the B&W quilt done. Have a great weekend!

It sounds like great shows for Michael. I hope you don't have rain. It rained here overnight and I don't know if that was headed your way or just south.

Have a great time this weekend. I bet you run out of your awesome totebags. Wow, those tired guys really don't mess around. My tire guy takes hours... oh but wait, it's my husband. Sometimes it only takes minutes, but he acts like it takes hours so that I make him cookies. :) That binding is going to look awesome on that quilt. I LOVE striped bindings!
