binding that is....picked up this festive print at marden's some time ago for whenever and it seems just the right thing for binding the christmas scrappy. with the quilting nearly done, time to get the binding ready so i can hopefully lop this UFO off my 2012 list. i absolutely love this print and wish i had bought more at the time, even though the thread count is higher than usual cotton fabric. **** aside from deleting tempting sales e-mails, i've been making more indigo flying geese and finishing up christmas gifties. we picked up our tree yesterday and the house is filled with the aroma of balsam, one of the few perks of maine living. all that remains is to decorate the tree, make some cookies and enjoy the season. though our celebrations are very low key due to few family members close by, it's nice to be able to relax and enjoy the pandemonium around after my way over-committed single parent days.
