It's Friday already (well, almost)

Okay, okay - I fess up - I bought some fabric.  Lucky for me, I needed white flannel and JoAnn's had some (pretty decent quality) for 2/3's off.  I love that sort of discount.  Bought 6 yards.
Pellon's equivalent to Steam-a-Seam was only 50% off.  Got some of that.  Also picked up my latest Buck-a-Block and some new dark green for one of the borders around the blocks,

[These blocks you've seen before]

You might remember that I used some sticky Solvy to transfer the design on my blackwork (rather than tracing the pattern onto the fabric).  It also just occurred to me that with this, one could use a patterned background, if that seemed like the right thing to do.  Anyway, pre soak and post,
Can you see the Solvy in this photo?

 Things drying on top of the clothes dryer.
Actually, although it is usually said that one should NOT use a light binding, I find this one really works quite well.  I like it.  Sewing this one on the back by hand.  My machine sewing (of binding) is not the greatest.

And a bit of machine quilting on my China Dishes wall hanging.  This one now has a sleeve and is ready for its new owner.

This week began a cardio-rehabilitation program, three days a week.  All told, it does keep me busy and mostly out of trouble.  But I'll keep ya posted.  :-)
