I've added the borders to my leftovers quilt. The plain blue is lovely fairtrade fabric from my friend Maggie which has a slight shot quality. This in turn is leftover from earlier quilts and I've cut some for the binding but there's still some left. The seersucker check is all gone, however, which is a result.
We loved the opening ceremony last night - quirky and many layered. Feeling very proud. Now I'm seeing the cycling and rowing on TV. The commentator noted that we win medals in sports where you sit down. I'm keeping up with this phenomenon in my sewing.
