March FNSI... In A Bind...

Wendy is doing such a great job of having us all over to her cyber-home at Sugarlane Designs each month for Friday Night Sew In... Thanks so much Wendy xo
You can go here to see the list of other participants & what they worked on for their evening... or day... or both!

My Friday started off beautifully... with a kangaroo from the nearby golf course stopping in for some brekky... that was lovely because we had not had one in our gardens almost all summer...
 
After dinner, I got myself into a bind... of the best kind... I finally started work on stitching into place the binding of my Postage Stamp Quilt... I surprised myself with how much I got done in those few hours.
There are a few more evenings of this ahead of me... fold, stitch... fold stitch... but the finish line is getting closer!

x♥x Thanks for dropping in to my blog, & I hope you have a wonderful weekend x♥x

What a fabulous backing on your PSQ! We of course don't get kangaroos here, but we do get deer, they like to eat the cedar hedge, and the buds off my apple trees. Early this morning we knew for sure Spring had arrived, as the raccoons were out playing and scuffling with each other.
