I would like to blame my lack of posting the last few days on Blogger but alas it is my own fault. I have been finishing up the quilting and working on the binding of the burgundy quilt and that is pretty boring to look at.
I had my binding nearly all sewn on by machine when I realized that I was sewing it on the back not the front as it should be. I made the snap decision to finish it and fold it to the front and just be extra careful with my stitching when I hand sewed it down. Now I am having second thoughts. I was worried that ripping off the binding would stretch the edges and the binding (oh well, I admit it, I was feeling lazy) but now I'm not sure. Maybe I'm not as maverick as I thought. To rip or not to rip, that is the question. Has anyone else done this and if so, what did you do?
Yesterday evening we took my Dad for a little drive and came across this pasture with buffalo. Several people in this area raise them for meat. It tastes a lot like beef but with a finer texture. These ones were by the fence and so huge that we were intimidated to go closer to get a better picture. The biggest one had a massive head and basically no neck at all. I'm sure they could walk right through the fence if they wanted to.
