After a while though I felt my fur start to singe so made a hasty retreat to the coolest place in the house
Note the chocolate bar for sustenance!
Once I was suitably cool, I decided to carry on with my newest hobby, sewing a quilt. My good friend Bearemy cut everything to size for me as my paws were not up to all that cutting
I then set to, stitching all my 6 x 6 squares together, first in rows, then stitching each row to the next
This took me ages, but it was fun to see my project growing square by square then row by row.
For the backing I bought myself a single sheet from Asda and cut it to size.
This proved very economical as I had enough left to make bias binding for the whole quilt.
I'm planning to finish stitching the binding in the autumn as it's just too hot to have the quilt on my lap and sew at the moment. Until then I'll occupy myself with small projects. I have a Debbie Shore book which has various interesting sewing projects in, so I'll probably busy myself with one of those until the weather turns cool enough to stitch quilted goods.
Happy crafting, see you soon.
With love from the bears
