I did get a bit of hand sewing done over the weekend, which counts towards my “some sewing/quilting each week right”? Anyway this was one of the first quilts I made at a workshop, Snail Trail although I know it is called other names too. Well the original binding I put on was dreadful so I finally got around to taking it off and putting a proper one on and it needed just sewing to the back.
The workshop was in the November so I used Christmas fabrics and I had some star Christmas fabric left over from another project so bound it in that.
I will be doing some different sewing tomorrow as I am making new curtains for our kitchen! I have not made any for a few years but the ones that are up are quite faded as the window gets a lot of sun during the summer months. It has taken me ages to find a suitable pattern in a washable cotton fabric and I have finally found it and will show you them when I have done. I hope I can remember how to sew ordinary square things?!!!!!!

The above picture shows Her Majesty The Queen Knighting Captain Sir Tom Moore last year. Captain Moore became a national hero during our first Lockdown by walking around his garden 100 times, as he was celebrating his 100th Birthday, to raise a little bit of money for our NHS. He thought he would raise around £1,000. Well his story was reported by the local news, picked up by the national news and by the end of his fundraising he had raised £35m!!!!
Sadly he went into hospital at the weekend with pneumonia, which he had been fighting for a while and died there today at the grand age of 100.
