My post about "no posts" generated responses from many of you. Glad to
see I am not alone. October is the month when I give away the charity
quilts made throughout the year. The problem is much of September must
be spent binding the quilts. I love to piece tops. Quilting is done by
someone else on a long arm machine but that final boring task of
binding is up to me. When working on my own quilts or one for a gift I
usually enjoy the relaxing hand sewing of binding. With twenty charity
quilts to finish they must be bound on the machine. The gal who does
the long arm work gives them back ten at a time. I should have started
the first batch as soon as she returned them. It is like
exercising---once I start stitching it isn't so bad, being motivated
to start is the problem. Seven are bound. If I turn off this computer
another would be finished before dinner. Once the quilts are bound I
can start a quilt for my granddaughter who is expected in December.
That is motivation to finish the bindings.
