I got so excited to finish the chickadee and add the binding that I forgot to add the backing and the hangers before sewing on the binding! Does anyone else do that?

I still have to hand stitch the binding to the back, so I cut the corner hangers and the backing and I'll tack them in as I stitch it down.
I felt that the background needed a little something. Using the bobbin work method, I stitched 3 snowflakes. The thread in the bobbin is quite heavy making it a bit of an imperfect process.
That's it for today. I'd like to keep working but I must get outside for some fresh air.
There are a couple of fall projects that I've almost finished; however, I'm considering sidelining them to start some Christmas sewing. It'll mean more UFO's though.
