Some actual sewing!

Lol I finally for some sewing done tonight. I basted and quilted Madeline. I've got one line of trim and am going tomorrow to pick up enough for the second line. My problem now is deciding on binding. I have both the dark grey paisley, and some red as well. Or should it be black?

 I do think the second line adds a nice balance. So what do you think for binding?

These are gloves for arthritis. They work as a compress, and are called Thermoskin. They are also awesome for quilting.

See all the little grips? Nothing holds like these. They do get a bit warm, but that is part of the point. I managed to do all of Madeline without my hands hurting much at all. Very awesome : )

 Thank you for all the well wishes, and commiseration about men in general, DH's in particular.  I will take everyone's advice and be very clear next year, and every year, about what I expect. Even if we can't afford gifts, a card and him cooking dinner is expected.

Very nice. The black adds just the perfect touch. I think I'd go with a red binding so it doesn't compete with the center. :-)

Yes, the other black line looks good. I think red binding would look best.

I also vote for red binding. Those gloves look interesting. Maybe I should invest in a pair. My hands are always hurting.

I really like it. The extra little black is striking. I like the idea of a red binding.
