To get ready for the show, I needed to put hanging sleeves on 8 quilts, and a binding on one of those. It was a customer’s first quilt that she agreed enter into the show. She did a fantastic job, didn't she?

As you can guess, I spent last weekend with needle and thread. If you are looking for a needle for hand sewing that glides through the fabric and has a big enough eye, that you can actually thread it – I have the answer: Dritz Embroidery needles, size 8. Then there's the only thimble I can wear now. I don't remember the name of it, but it has a rubber body that is comfortable and functional on my aging knuckles.
If you have never entered a quilt in a quilt show - just go ahead and do it. It is great fun and very rewarding.
Now y'all have a great week, and let's go quilting!
