Bindings Hurt

Yes, I'm binding my grandson's cowboy quilt. Finally, today, God willing, I will be done! Bill quilted it in about 50 hours working maybe 1-2 hours a day, bless his giant heart. It would never be done if it depended on me to quilt it. He says the same of me--we'd never have quilts if I didn't piece them. I think we make a good team. We should since we've been married 39 years. Though we see things from totally different perspectives and can't understand each other's modes of communication, we have made it thus far and will, through the act of commitment, make it to the end. Why do wonderful things hurt? Our quilt is wonderful, but it hurts to bind it because binding is not creative, is boring and endless. Some things just have to be done anyway.
