Putting needles away .....again.....
Wish I didn't like knitting so much. It keeps my hands busy, but it keeps me away from doing my quilting and there is plenty of that to be done.

My pile of strips still was quite large, so I made my scrappy bindings for each of these two quilts.
So, these two quilts are the next things on the docket.
I have backings from my stash and I pieced batting pieces for the insides. How can you not see a dent in the stash? I think it is really true that fabric multiplies in the dark.

Since I am sitting here recovering from surgery, I made sure I had some hand projects to keep me busy for a week or so. The first on...
