2016 kind of stunk! Lots of trouble, lots of stress, lots of illness. I was glad to say goodbye last night, and say Hello to 2017. But, all clouds have a silver lining, and apparently my clouds are lined with bright quilting cottons. As I gathered up photos today to create this mosaic I was shocked by the number of finishes.
14 quilts, lap sized or larger
1 sewing machine mat
1 sewing machine cover
2 mini quilts
4 zippered bags
5 button boats
Now somewhere during the course of 2016 I started keeping track of how many inches of binding I hand stitched down. Kind of a silly thing to do, but it kept me amused. (Yes, I really am that easily amused!) Ready to hear the total? It's a big total!
4077 inches of binding!
Almost 340 feet!
That's over 113 YARDS!
So, I took many thousands of stitches in all that binding. Good thing I quite enjoy doing it, huh?
Wonder how much binding I'll stitch in 2017?
Better get busy!!
Happy New Year, bloggy friends!
May we all be blessed with Love, Happiness, Health and Full Bobbins.
