I swore I would never hand sew a binding... I seriously don't like hand work, but to have a fighting chance I knew I would have to break down and do some hand sewing to stay competitive. I hand sewed binding on a wall hanging for my dad, a tablerunner for MIL, and a baby quilt I made as practice this month. Last night I got the binding on my first large quilt and tonight I did the hand sewing. I started it with the intention of watching Big Brother with Paul and then going to work on my project. I kind of just kept sewing and sewing and sewing, until I couldn't move my hands any more. I have one long side left, but I feel really good about how much I got done. I told my mom tonight she'll need to help me with hand sewing, since I'm not sure if I'm doing it right. About 11 tonight I went to work on my secret project. It would make a cute picture, but since a few of you will receive them, I can't show until they are received. They actually turned out way cuter than I expected. I have a couple more to do, but those will have to wait for another night.
