Sunday Binding Stack

 I was so happy to finish quilting Flamingo (Orca) Bay yesterday, but even happier to get the binding put on today. 
Now I can add it to this scary stack of bindings to be sewn down.  In a stroke of perfect timing, the menfolk came home from their afternoon of D&D with The Princess Bride for everyone to watch.  I'll be stitching away while we watch.  Settling in with a bit of handwork is a perfect way to say goodbye to the weekend. Head over to Kathy's blog to see what handwork everyone else has found to keep them busy today.

doing bindings while watching TV is a perfect combination.

Ah.......the ending. Feels great doesn't it. I stitch all my bindings on by machine. Hurts the wrists too much to do it by hand.

Have a wonderful time stitching with the family :)
Thanks for linking up to Slow Sunday Stitching!

Oh yes! The Princess Bride!!!! One of my all-time favorites :*) Can't think of a better way to spend time while stitching down a binding.

Sounds like a perfect Fall evening. Can't wait to see the finished version of your Flamingo Bay.

You went with the teal binding and it looks great. Princess Bride is one of my favs...as you wish.

Princess Bride is a favorite here as well. Looks like you have a lot of movie watching covered with your stack. But it's good to be so organized and ready.

As Bonnie gets closer to announcing the next mystery quilt, I start feeling guilty that my Orca Bay is not yet quilted. Seeing yours makes me want to get-r-done! Great Job and I love your color choices.
