A close up of the binding.
The backing is a wonderful paisley print on fleece, but there is no batting in this one, so it's not overwhelmingly heavy. I think she will enjoy it, and I'm glad to get it done. I do hate to have things unfinished. (So we won't talk about the other things that are not finished yet. Okay?)
Note, also, the lovely tomato plant (that I need to tie to its support pole). The garden is coming along nicely out there. It's summer here now. I don't care what the calendar says, it IS summer. Early summer. Not the brutal heat of later in the season, but still hot days and not-at-all-cool nights. Ah, Houston. Got to love it! And I do. I've lived here for over forty years. As we transplants to Texas like to say, "I wasn't born here, but I got here as soon as I could!"
I'm also trying to finish the quilt I promised for an auction our young people at church are having to raise money for a trip they are taking this summer. The top is pressed now. Time to sew on the borders. Moving right along!
I do hope you are having a wonderful day doing whatever pleases you most.
Hugs and kisses,
