Friday night sewing

 I had a very productive sewing time last night, I finally got the binding  sewn on my new table runner. Its a scrappy runner so I thought a scrappy binding would suit perfectly. All stripey strips frame it nicely.
 I even spent a bit of time before bed and started sewing it down  on the back.  I love tucking in all those stray threads,


 I also cut into my tilda fabrics that I have been saving for no special reason  and started making little blocks, I want to do some stitchery on the odd block  so I'm working on a layout, I do like it so far.
 My garden is looking very pretty with all my bulbs in flower, Look at my hyacinths, they are my favourite and smell so nice.
 Tulips are starting to bud so it won't be long and they will be blooming, another favourite of mine.
Last Monday was my birthday, I had a wonderful day, All week I have been receiving lovely parcels in the post. I received this beautiful bag from my Friends in Stitching group, the theme was black and white and we had to make a bag of some kind. Lynda made me this one and I love it.  Thankyou so much Lynda.

Your hyacinths Leanne are so beautiful and the colors are so lovely. I bet they smell lovely too.
A scrappy binding is perfect for your table runner and it uses up all the left over fabric too.
What a beautiful tote you received. Love the way she added your initials. Very sweet of her and Hope you have a wonderful weekend.
Blessings,

Such a bright and fun tablerunner - gorgeous. I too love hyacinths. Their perfume is so lovely. Tilda fabric is one of my faves - any of them. I look forward to seeing this come together. You are very lucky to receive that stunning bag too. Happy birthday.
