So far I'm having a pretty quiet sewing week. I'm finishing up the binding on this quilt, which I'm really excited to finish. It's backed in minky which is super soft and snuggly.
Since it's tricky to hand stitch binding to minky, I sewed it onto the back of the quilt first and I'm hand stitching it to the front. I've used the same black and white dot print that I used for the narrow borders for the binding. I'm mostly using black thread to blend in with the binding but since the white dots are so large I've left those bits unstitched and I'll go back with white thread and finish them up later. Is that crazy?
I also got a knitting lesson from my mum this weekend and I've been knitting up a little sample to try and get my stitches right. It still feels quite awkward but I'm sure I'll get the hang of it eventually. I've bought yarn for my first project, a scarf.
