I stuck with it for 3 hours and finished the hand stitching on the binding but still have to sew the bottom edge of the hanging sleeve. Now I'm glad I only had one choice that worked for the binding because I'm really happy with it.
Gene asked if that was an oil painting next to the bookcase unit that I just moved. Yes, this is my art gallery wall. Back in the 1970s there was a really active art league in this town and I bought several paintings from the artists. The art has hung in various rooms and now I just enjoy them all in one spot. The one on the far left is a quilt pattern made of painted wood pieces, very popular in the 1980s.
I moved my blue and turquoise stash onto the bookcase last night instead of boxes on the bottom shelf.
