I finished stitching down the binding on this lovely this morning. I had to give myself a quiet half hour as I was in a foul mood. I think J's complete disregard for where he puts all his stuff - ie all over the house! - just got on top of me a bit, so I let him play while I stitched. Much better. (We'll deal with the mess later!) Now it is just waiting for it's turn in the washing machine and I'll be able to show you properly. I love this shot of the binding though, I used some solid grey (Kona or Klona, I can't remember) but slipped in a couple of red bits left over from the backing.
The day did get better. After I finished stitching we popped to the library to pick up a couple of books that I'd ordered and then went for a swim. It was lovely and quiet, just us and a few mums and babies (we go in the teaching pool, so much warmer and nicer!) It makes such a difference to get out of the house. I suspect that I am guilty of not making enough effort to get out when the weather is less than wonderful, so we've been cooped up rather a lot of late.
