With two quilts dropped around to Paula, the long arm quilter, I decided it was time to get the binding ready for when they return. Luckily I took some quick measurements earlier so I knew approximately how long to make them. The bindings have been draped over the back of my chair in the sewing room, getting sat on, and falling on the floor – not a good way to store them at all. So then I had a brain wave, why not roll them around a cardboard roll? With a safety pin to keep them in place, it worked out well, and is so much tidier. Why had I never thought of this before?

You may remember that I have also been doing some "secret sewing" working on an apron for a Sew Wot Christmas gift. Helen sent me a blog comment saying, “Hi Jenny. Don't forget to put the pocket on the apron & pop a fav recipe in the pocket! I'm making mine next week. Dear wee Gemma is full of life!”. Well, I had forgotten about adding a pocket to the apron, so was grateful for the reminder. Better get on and finish this today.
