I therefore used this for the binding and to make a large cushion cover to go with

  4. My own private sewing retreat

    My DH went to CO to ski with our daughter and SIL, so I have 5 days of no obligations and am free to quilt all night if I
    want! I made up several soups and froze for them to take so have basically all my meals ready for the microwave. And our weather forecast is predicting snow on our already 1/2" of ice--so no reason to be out--sewing machine and long arm, here I come!!
