Tea and Art: Project Complete

Saw Tooth Star –

I love spending time with my grandchildren. Way back on September 21, 2015 I posted a story about a project we participated in. During our special day the children finished making three saw tooth star blocks.

Left unfinished were the bindings. Binding is one of my daughter’s least favorite things to do so I volunteered to add them.

Procrastination? –

Obviously quite a bit of time has passed since my original post. If I had simply set this project aside because of a bad case of procrastination I would be embarassed to even bring you up-to-date. But an endless stream of life experiences, both good and bad, left this tiny project languishing on my shelf. I’m so glad to be able to get back to finishing them up.

Binding –

To make binding these squares a little easier my daughter had cut, stitched, pressed and rolled together a large roll of binding. Using that neatly prepared resource it was easy to machine stitch the binding to the front side of each block. I then flipped the blocks over to reveal the back side, folded the binding to the back, pressed them in place and secured it with my clips.  With needle and thread I hand stitched the edge of the binding down.

Drum roll please…….

I’m happy to say they are finally finished. Here they are!
