Welcome to my blog about my quilting journey! I started quilting in 2006 with a quilt of my own design which started as a cushion cover and ended up as a single bed sized quilt! Now I'm totally hooked....maybe obsessed is a better word for it.

My Little Helpers!

Thought I'd share a photo of my new little helpers who have been holding my binding in place while I hand stitch it down. Aren't they cute little people?

My boss got them (and a great magnetic oval doodad which is great for holding my pins!) when he presented at a WorkCover conference last year and he gave them to me. I hadn't thought of a use for them until I was looking for my clips to hold the binding down and saw them sitting there and thought 'Aha!'. They're great too, they actually hold the binding flatter than the other type of clip. I only wish I had more of them!  Here's a photo of one up close and personal:

And here's a photo of my lovely old dog, Molly, very intently eyeing off a fly which had been bothering us all day!
Thanks for stopping by!
