For binding, I sewed some of the remaining jelly roll strips together. I like the patchy look these make. The problem with the shortage of backing is irrelevant now, but even though the diagonal seam worked out fine, I will try to make sure that I have enough yardage on the next quilt so it won't have to be pieced.
No Pilates again today for me. I guess I was a little too enthusiastic (now that's a word not usually associated with Pilates!) at class the other day and strained a muscle in my neck or upper back. It feels better now, but don't want to take a chance on re-injury before our upcoming motorcycle trip. I'm sure some of you will think we are crazy (again!) so I won't give too many details - yet! But we will be watching the weather for the next couple of weeks very closely. Stay tuned!
I'm still thinking about that dogwood tree. I stopped at Walnut Ridge Nursery today to see what they have since they are on sale this week. Their selection of pink dogwoods has been pretty well picked over so I'm not sure yet. They do have a really nice water feature display there. Wouldn't it be nice to have this koi pond and waterfall in your backyard?
