I finished the commission tee shirt quilt today. Finished it. It felt amazing to put on the binding and call it done. I did a pieced binding, which I love, and which was perfect for this colorful arty quilt. Probably I can post pictures in about a month.
I know that the first thing I'll think of when I wake up tomorrow will be, "It's done." Not that I haven't loved making it, because I have. It's been a wonderful journey.
Also keeping me busy has been hemming two vintage coats. One was cashmere and was absolutely beautiful. The fabric in the coat and lining was incredible. I tried to duplicate the original hem, which had an interfacing. I hemmed that coat by hand.
And, it's softball season. I drove Aaron to Williamsburg, OH, tonight for his first game. His team has had one pre-season practice because the other practices were rained or snowed out. Nora had her second game tonight, a long game called because of darkness with the score tied. Their mom actually made it to both games, Aaron's first, then she got to watch Nora pitch.
I absolutely love to watch Aaron play because he loves it so much. He just enjoys being part of a team and chatting with the other boys and wearing his uniform. He was a happy boy. I did leave his game early because it was so cold and I'm a wimp.
