I Don't Always Interrupt Projects....

But when I do,
it's one you're in a hurry to finish.

In spite of my helper, I've quilted the border and I'm ready for the binding. 
 I was originally thinking about a scrappy binding sort of like this:
 but I'm now thinking about going with the dark green for the binding. 

I love how the tiny little bead of green looks, and it feels like the dark green binding completes it.  The other option was the turquoise of the border, but that feels a bit unresolved. Decisions, decisions, decisions.

I finally got a picture of the finished socks,
and as it's February 10, I thought it time to start on Andy's Valentine shirt:
 I picked up this fun print earlier this year,
 and got the pattern pieces cut out last night while the kittens guarded the quilt.  The shirt only takes 2 yards of 60-inch-wide fabric, so it's not a big stash-burner, but I don't even know what kind of project would make a visible dent in the fabric stash.  An entire wardrobe for a small village perhaps?  But I'm using stash.  That's what matters.....

I love your little helper, mine are asleep on my office floor right now, frankly the only time anything is safe is when they are asleep. Have a great week.

Your quilt is just beautiful I think your binding choice is perfect.
Great job on the socks!

Love the blue print, will be fun to see how that progresses. I no longer have cats (which I'm happy about), but when I did they were constantly messing with my yarn, or trying to sit on a project I was working on...so relate to your post. The socks looks comfy.
