In the home stretch

What is my entire focus these past days and for the coming days?
Bindings, bindings and more bindings!

This is literally all I have left to finish on Teacher Quilt #1. I wanted to sew these last few stitches last night but I just didn't have it in me.
 Yesterday morning was spent working in my garden beds planting a bunch of new perennials. The builder put in mostly just green things and I want lots and lots of color. There are still some bare spots but before long they will all be in and the beds will be filled with gorgeous blooms of many colors.
We worked until lunch time and then called it a day. It was H.O.T. and humid.
The thunderstorms came soon after and it was the perfect time to get the bindings machine sewn on the front of Teacher Quilt #2.
 I also went ahead and sewed the binding on the front of Teacher Quilt #3.
I expect that I'll get a call this morning from my longarmer that #4 is ready to be picked up. Tomorrow will be another binding hand sewing/Harry Potter marathon and I'm hoping to get #2 and #3 completed.
The graduation ceremonies and quilt gifting is next Monday and Wednesday so I don't have much time left to get these done.
Wish me luck!

Happy to hear from you - came up for a gulp of air. Oh those storms - was thinking of all of you in that area after reports of funnels - I call my daughter after every major storm now - they seem to get so severly in their area.
