WIP Wednesday (the Budapest edition 1)

So I arrived on Sunday night and despite running through Amsterdam airport to catch the second plane it all went quite smoothly. I am now sitting in my very swanky hotel room with a view over the Danube!

Despite long hours at work followed by some very nice dinners (roast goose tonight) I am still fitting in some sewing. Back in October I came to Budapest with work for the first time and I started working on a paper pieced project with colours inspired by last year's holiday to Pembrokeshire.  When I came again in November I finished the piecing. Over Christmas I finished the embroidery and it felt right that I should bring it back with me to finish off the quilting and the binding in Budapest.

I decided to do the binding before the quilting and I finished sewing that down last night. I have had to wait for the quilting as I forgot to bring a thimble. Hopefully my hungarian colleague will be bringing me one tomorrow. For now I will work on a new paper piecing project that I will be able to share more with you next week.

I'm linking up with WIP Wednesday (hopefully - if I can work  out how to copy and paste on my tablet!)
