Bellybuttons and afternoon naps

My latest quilt is all quilted. I can't show you the full quilt just now, but just to tease you, that black circular stitching on the orange gingham in the second image is a bellybutton! I am loving gingham fabric as quilt backing at the moment. I think its quite playful.

I'm working to a deadline for this quilt so now I need to knuckle down and hand-stitch the binding as well as tie off all those threads. Only problem is, I know I'll fall asleep doing it. This baby is making me very tired, and I think I'm going to have to succumb to regular afternoon sleeps - a pet hate of mine, after all, I'd rather be sewing!
