I'm about halfway through the hand stitching. I'm happy with it but not thrilled beyond measure. I prefer to be thrilled beyond measure, as you might imagine.
Maybe it was the color choice but the stitches aren't popping like I want. But they are pretty cool as far as design goes.
I hope to find enough time today to finish up the hand stitching. Generally speaking, the binding goes pretty fast (knocking wood furiously).
