a binding issue
why is the hardest part to finish on a quilt the binding? i had a conversation about this recently with my friend se'lah of the necessary room. we talked about loving to quilt, but hating to bind. which actually means hating to finish, doesn't it? and why is that? because there's so much satisfaction in finishing things. so why is it that we hold ourselves back from it? is it the pleasure of the process? is it because we don't want it to be over? is it because our attention spans are short (and by our, i mean mine)? are we too easily bored in this fast-paced information age? why do we leave things unfinished?
i don't have an answer. but this evening, while watching my usual saturday evening midsomer murder, i'm going to be sewing on the binding above. i have a need to finish it. before the baby i've made it for turns 18...(hint, hint, se'lah, i'm binding my quilt!)
