Doesn't look like much laying there does it. Its 10.5 yards of bias binding I made. Anyone who has ever made this binding knows that burned fingers go with the territory or it does for me. I swear I must get myself with the steam a gazillion times while making it, for sure while making this many yards of it. I needed this for a cute something I am making ;O).. I will show it to you when its all done.

'bias binding' just sounds like a bad thing all the way around... :)

LindaG said...

I've heard the term, but no clue how to make it, and I'm pretty sure I don't know what to do with it. Yours looks good.

Good luck with your project!

As do your seedlings! Do you buy the covered pans? Just curious.

I am so happy to see your little seedlings. I'm still a month away from being able to plant seeds, so it's a joy to see yours!

Nothing boring about this post....you have been hard at work...can't wait to see what would have you go to the trouble of making all that bias.

I always worry too whether my seedlings are going to come up! I think that's why I plant too many in each pot every year!

Nice job on the binding, by the way! Making binding is hazardous to the fingertips!

Your posts are never boring, and it's always good to hear from you.

You are such a good little worker. Sewing and gardening to name just a few. I love to count the little plants and give them names. ;0).

I love your sharing. One thing it shows is how much work goes into creating and growing things.

Good job.

I bought a plug in mini iron to make my bias tape..and for quilting...it looks like a curling iron with a tiny little iron on the end.

Love the tomatoes...just planted mine.

I find your post exciting, course I have visions of starting those seedlings here also...just not getting to it! Inspiration, thats just what I needed! Thanks!

Your amazing dedication toward your projects, such as making your own bias, shows the reason your sewing is on such a higher level. The bias we get to "buy" is so ugly! I can't imaging making my own custom bias for something. I CAN'T WAIT to see what your project will be.

And, the seedlings look awesome. I feel like a bum after reading your post today!! :-/ I need to get my seeds planted, but the moving stuff is keeping me from doing my normal gardening routine. It's as if I feel like, well, we won't be living here much longer and they'll be in the way while marketing the house...pity trip big time!

I'll have to enjoy watching your garden come together.

IT'S NEVER BORING!

And I'm not bias! :-)

Hi there.... just found your blog, became a "FOLLOWER" and am leaving a comment. I see you've already got seedlings going. I live in central-ish Texas and need to get in gear with the planting.
Take care.

Oh my goodness, little tomatoes! So exciting :-) I love garden tomatoes!

LBP said...

Whoo Hoo! How happy this makes me to see those little sprouts! I can not wait until I can plant mine. Not much longer!

Mimi Foxmorton said...

Boring?
You must be....biased...... ;)
I find this blog making me feel like spring! :)

Jim said...

Hey! Boring is in the eyes of the beholder! And this is NOT one of them! I appreciate a good sewing person! and a gardener to boot! We still have a few months to start planting things but you have got me thinking about it! Thanks.

Sewing projects, gardening projects, challenging maybe but never boring. You've been busy getting ready for more good things.

I need to get my seed pots and dirt ready soon -- excited! :)
