My Creative Space

I've been out of sorts the last couple of weeks with transitioning back into school but yesterday I was finally sat down and worked on my son's quilt. And once I got going I was actually able to finish everything but the binding. Yes, yes it is over two years late but I think definitely still in the acceptable time range, ie he's under 18.This is only my second attempt at quilting with my machine as I usually quilt by hand. And I'd have to say it wasn't as scary as I thought it would be. All in all not a bad day's work. I'd feel a lot more relaxed if it wasn't for my other sewing project waiting in the foreground.
For other amazing and inspirational spaces please head on over to Kirsty's.
