I ignored my 'shall I quilt it more or shall I not' dilemma over the Pips Pinwheels and just got on with binding it. I am very pleased with the finish because I like the way the binding echoes the narrow line of sashing just in from the edge.
The runaway pinwheel still stands out well.
I think my worries about there not being enough quilting might be unfounded, but still not 100% sure.
The backing is very simple, but it allows the pinwheel stitching to show really well.
I especially like the way it looks where the pinwheel points meet.
So, yes, it is fair to say I am a happy puppy today. Another completed project. One I am happy with. It's got to be a good thing. One last photo -
Meanwhile, in the household of no electronics I continue to keep the ban in place - almost. To keep the girls entertained after school yesterday afternoon I put them to work in the kitchen. They worked well as a team and managed to produce their school lunch for today and tomorrow - layered prawn salad.
In those little pots there is prawns in a rose marie sauce, sweetcorn, pasta, grated carrot and spring onion. When they were done making these we made our dinners. The healthiest of options here folks. Fresh spring rolls. I chopped all the ingredients -
Got the rice papers -
|Honestly, who could resist a brand called Thai Boy?|
It didn't matter what shape you wrapped it up as. We had some dumplings with it and that was our dinner. Fresh, easy and very good.
As a reward for duties performed in the kitchen I allowed a limited time of television. And then they took themselves outside. There is definitely something to this no electronics rule, but I still feel like one mean mother implementing it.
