Every time I get to this point on a quilt, when I am hand sewing on the binding, I am almost giddy. I love this final step, watching the whole quilt come together. The last couple of days I have been working on the binding for the little leftovers quilt and I have decided it is definitely my favorite part of the whole process. There is something so satisfying about sealing up the seams.
It has been a productive week, and I should be happy with it, but somehow I always think I can get more done than I actually can. My “to do” list always long outnumbers my “done” list, and inevitably I feel frustrated. Lately, this has happened even more often, as I have less energy and my belly is always in the way. (34 weeks today!) I am learning to enjoy sitting still, at least trying anyway. It is good practice for when this baby gets here and I have a lot of snuggling to do. Today’s “to do” list: stipple the baby quilt and take a nap.
