Missed it by that much

It's been a while since I had some sewing time. It has been busy with the Sewing Stitching & Handicraft Show, teaching and running the shop. 
So today I got a little session in with the ladies  for Friday Project Uninterrupted.  I have finished hand stitching the binding down on my 3 yard quilt and some new hand stitching will be needed. So I thought I would stitch on the binding on the one I finished quilting in April.
Now I have done this step many times over the years, so sometimes I get lazy and guess how many strips I need to bind a project. Today was one of those days and I missed it by this much.
As you can see it looks like I cut a bit off, which is exactly what I did. I cut a piece off for the label, as I  couldn't find a piece in the scrap box suitable.
So in the end I had to cut another strip to make up the shortfall to complete it. 
So now I have some more hand stitching for the evenings. Then I will be able to cross another project off my list.
Until Next Time
Keep Stitching

One Monthly Goal- May's Goal

 Things are crazy here and I want time to work on my unfinished projects but it is not working out for me. So I am set myself a goal that hopefully will be achievable in the sense I need to do it before the next workshop to stay ahead of my students. So far this year I have been doing ok with this one, so I am planning to keep it that way. 

So that plan for May is to join these sections together. 


That is an easy task I hear your say and yes it is, only 16 seams to sew. That is only part 1 of my plan. I also want to complete the next section which has two section in it.  It is the spikes that run along the joined sections.


So there is a bit of work in this month's goal. Though it was tempting to only set the first part for the month. That would have been really cheeky of me.

I have linked my post with Elm Street Quilts goal setting post, so pop over and check out what everyone is working on this month.

Until Next Time
