Still Binding

My plan did not go as I, well, umm, ...planned.  I am STILL not done with binding and no pretty, outside-in-the-snow pictures have been taken. I just can't seem to sit in one place and hand stitch the bindng!  It is, after all, hard to focus when this

And this

are calling from the sewing room!

I want to start something new as much as I want to finish something up!

I have decided that the quilt being bound is going to need a label, which I am in no mood to create, and I won't have a gifting opportunity anytime soon, anyway, so I am going to take the rest of the binding slowly.  Better to cut a new project in hopes of finishing by a deadline than to finish something that will just sit a while anyway.  Right?

So, I started my round robin block in hopes of finishing tonight so it can be sent off to my pen pal tomorrow along with some Valentine's  goodies.

Oh, those dots and and flowers!

But, then I was informed by my family that they'd like to eat today.  Sigh.  But I'm ready to go at the next hint of a few free minutes.  That's something, anyway.

  1. You know, the way I look at it is that I sew to relax and get rid of stress. If the current projects aren't what I feel like focusing on, I'm not going to force it. Stressing over UFO's is defeating the purpose of sewing for me. I love your fabrics and can totally see why you'd want to start working with them!! Good luck!
