I have the binding sewn on 3 out of 4 of the quilts and the ends joined on 1, tomorrow I plan on joining the ends of the other 2 and then glue basting all 3 so they are ready for the hand sewing.

Spudgrandma, you got a lot done! Good for you! You say "glue basting" What do you use to do that?

Barbara, thanks for the kick, that makes two now.  I did take that walk and I did work up enough energy to do a few things around the house that needed doing and then I took a nap.  

I'm making you a promise, I'll work on the backing tomorrow before I even get online.  It is nearly done.

Jody, I use Sharon Schamber's glue method to make, attach and baste the binding. It works great for me and made a job that I use to hate into one that is just another part of the quilt. Here is the link to her youtube video showing  how to do it, there are 3 videos and most of the info you need is on #2, but I would watch them all at least once.

BJ, I guess a few of us are in a funk, maybe we could inspire one another to fight it and get quilting.  I made Barbara a promise to work on the backing for my DGS quilt tomorrow before even getting online and I'm going to make good on that promise.  What will you do?  MaggieNae?  Spud, I think Nana's kick got you going, keep it up.  Come on girls, let's get busy!

Jody, I guess I did not exactly answer your question. I use Elmer's School glue it is washable and completely comes out. She has a web site and that is where I got the tips that you put on the bottle of glue so you can do a really thin line.

Well I guess it's my turn to ask for T&P"s. For the last month I've had the worst pain in the back and hip,sometimes running all the way down to my big toe. It started out just a tiny bit of pain in my lower back and day by day got worse. I had to drag out the cane I used when I had my knees done. I really hate that cane. My Doctor was out of town for two weeks that's why it took me so long to see him. Anyway I went today and he sent me for x-rays on the lower back, by the time I got off that hard table I was ready to scream.So now have to wait and see what the X-rays show. Whoever said that getting old was not for the weak at heart sure as heck knew what  they were talking about.

 I'll add my T&P to the rest of you who are ill,injured or just sick and tired.

Oh Bonita, I hope your pain goes quickly.  Hopefully the Dr can send you for some physical therapy and cure your pain.  My prayers are going up for this to be a quick easy fix for you.   Ginny

Nana:
Gini and Donna Glad you had safe trips and made it home happy and sound.

  Nana, we had the best flight from Cinncinnati to Seattle on Delta with a  wonderful flight attendant.  Told DH her voice sounded just like Nana's!  She was very sweet...obviously a southern belle just like you!
