Good binding help can be hard to find.  This is Krissi.

Kind of a worrisome week, but good for me personally.  I got back to my step aerobics class, and am happy to say that my bionic knee feels better than the one that’s still original.  Great to be back!

I didn’t buy any quilting fabric.  I was bitten by the garment sewing bug, so I bought some knits for tops.  Pictures later if they turn out.


The only finish was this commissioned baby quilt, using three and a half yards.  I think this is the seventh one of this design I’ve made, starting with the Elephant Quilt in 2014, then adding the Star Wars version last year (thanks to a client who had this vision).  So it went pretty quickly.  That isn’t pink under the baby’s name, but a patch of sunlight.

I did get very tired of  the stickyness from Steam a Seam Lite 2.  Yuck!  My needle was a mess.  I guess I’m going back to Wonder Under.  Any other suggestions?

This week:  + 0 yards,  – 3.5 yards
This year: + 74 yards,  – 83.25 yards
Net destashed in 2016:  8.25 yards

Keep using your stash.  I’m linking up to Sunday Stash at Patchwork Times.
